Lexmark 3100 printer

I am a computer novice - have just bought new computer (Acer Aspire M3600) Microsoft Vista. Have tried to instal printer with instalation disk, has been recognised in printer dialog box but when I go to print, apparently there is a problem with the 'set up'. It is connected via USB, correct disk is installed but it wont work. Any suggestions please? Does it have to be a specific USB port - there are 6?

If you're using Windows 7, check if it's running on 32-bit or 64-bit operating system. On your computer, go to Start menu > right-click on Computer > Properties. Take note of the System Type.
Use the links below to download the Lexmark Z2420 Printer Driver from the Lexmark website: - Lexmark Z2420 Driver for Windows XP/Vista 32-bit/Windows 7 32-bit - Lexmark Z2420 Driver for Vista 64-bit/Windows 7 64-bit

How can i re boot my computer as bought


You need to reinstall Windows again from scratch using the Recovery CD, if you have not got it you can purchase one from Acer.
Otherwise you nee a Windows installation CD with the product installation code and after you have installed Windows you need to install the device drivers for the devices that are installed on your Acer.

You can download the drivers from the Acer WEB site Make sure you select the model of your laptop and the XP or Vista version of the drivers you that require matches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link to get to the Acer support :-

Lexmark Printer


I regret to inform you that the hardware/technology of this printer would not support the 32/64 bit processes of the Vista OS. That is why there will be no driver developed for this machine.

Lexmark 1290 on Vista Printing Blank Pages


Fond this on the Lexmark Website. Hope it helps.

Attention Windows Vista Users
If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.

Follow these steps to resolve:
· 1) Disconnect your USB cable from your printer.
· 2) Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC.
· 3) Download the correct Vista driver for your model.
· 4) While leaving the USB unconnected, Install the driver on your PC.

Important - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected.

Installation of a downloaded driver for Lexmark X1290 All-In_One


Hi,

You need to download the Vista compatible setup here from Lexmark,

http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:567:0:0&searchLang=en&os_group=Windows%20Vista&target=

Run the setup after it finishes downloading but ONLY connect the printer to the computer when the setup instructs you to do so.

Installation of a downloaded driver for Lexmark X1290 All-In_One


I bought a Lexmark X1290 printer and installed a wrong driver (for WinXP) from the enclosed CD. Then I could not run the All in One program. After many reinstallation attemps, I finally found a solution (which is unfortunately quite hidden at the Lexmark website):

1) Unplug the printer's USB cable from the computer.
2) Download the cleaning utility from ftp://ftp.lexmark.com/driver/inkjet_drivers/Cleanup/.
3) Double-click on the cleanup utility and follow the on-screen instructions to run it.
4) Restart the computer.
5) Download all files from ftp://ftp.lexmark.com/driver/inkjet_drivers/Cleanup/reg/
6) Follow the instructions in the "Vista BackDoor Instructions.txt" and delete all remaining Lexmark
keys in the registry.
7) Restart the computer
8) Download a proper driver for Windows Vista from the Lexmark website.
9) Install the driver accordingly to the instructions (it's important to plug the printer's USB cable when you are ask to, not before)

The problem with Lexmark Unistall and CleanUp Utility is that you cannot delete all Lexmark registry keys while you arelogged in the system. This is anellegant way how to circumvent the problem.

Installation of a downloaded driver for Lexmark X1290 All-In_One


For those of you who have downloaded the appropriate vista driver for your printer. Go to device manager on pc (control panel, hardware and devices etc) Select uninstall printer driver, as you want any old references to xp one deleted. Now, place new disc or dicc with new driver files in and your install new hardware program shopuld self start. IF not you can manually do it by going to add new hardware wizard, and select own information to suit yopur needs. But win vista should automatically find the new drivers.

Hard disk problem


If your Wundows vista is a full install program you should have deleted and created the partion then formatted the new partition before installing windows vista. Try this again if you hard drive is stuffed you will need a new one Im afraid but windows vista will tell you this before it installs itself. Goodluck!!!!!
