Question about Lexmark JetPrinter X1185 All-In-One InkJet
My new notebook has communication problems with my lexmark 1200 series. I have uninstalled and reinstalled heaps of times and done everything troubleshooting has told me to do (several times). The printer was working fine on my computer (windows xp) but wont communicate with my notebook which is acer extensa 5220 (windows vista basic). Please help.
You've encountered 1 of the many issues with Vista. The OS is so gargantuan that Microsoft had to ax many of the drivers that were included with XP.
Copy & paste the above URL into your web browser & that will take you right to the driver download page. Select the red highlighted "Driver Download" for the 1200 series printers. This will send you to the Operating System selection page. Once selected you'll see the red highlighted .exe file. Select "download now". You should see a pop-up asking you to save the file. I like to send downloads to the desktop to facilitate installation of the software. You can later drag & drop it into whatever folder you like.
Make sure to remove the XP drivers before installing the Vista drivers. Also remember to unplug the USB cable from the printer prior to installing the Vista drivers. The installation software will prompt you when to re-install the USB cable.
