hi... if u don't know the lexmark tech support #... its this: 1800 332 4120... or u can live chat online on support.lexmark.com
if u r the do it yourself type... go to www.lexmark.com. in the search box on top right corner type "x1185". click search. scroll downwards & click on download driver & select windows vista. before u start download check whether urs is vista 32 bit or 64 bit. right click on computer entry in start menu & click properties. check what it says there under operating system type: 32 bit or 64 bit. if its 64 bit... download vista_x64 driver from the lexmark site else select just vista. after download... comes the long process of installation which would take even more instructions. i think u can just call the tech support & it will be a first call resolution
Find a friend with adsl and get them to download the driver and copy it to a cd for you.
Alternatively you could send them an e-mail to request a cd to be sent, but the chances of them doing that for free are slim;
another way I can think of is to find a store that has the same printer and ask if you can copy the driver cd - they may let you, again chances are slim.
You could try and get ADSL yourself - dial-up is often not any cheaper now, and is practically useless. It is time to upgrade if you can.
Hope this helps :)
You will need to disable any virus protection and spyware protection. You can leave the firewall up.(unless it doesn't work. try it with the firewall off.)
Does the printer work on another machine? Does another printer work on your laptop.
Let me know what happens. Vista is new so are the questions.
Thanks & Good Luck
