Question about Lexmark X1270 All-In-One InkJet Printer

New Printer not working with Windows Vista

I have been on the phone with Lexmark support three times. They even sent me a new installation disc and I am still having problems. I cannot get the software to download correctly in order to get the printer up and running with my new Toshiba laptop. It tends to do the installation process and then when I go to enable the software it starts looking for files that cannot be found which tells me that the installation was not done correctly.

Hey Karlilee
how are you doing ?
well if you any antivirus installed particularly with the firewall u must go to firewall setting then go to add and block program, there u have to mark all the lexmark files, and should apply it .

Before that do uninsatllation of the lexmark software and the drivers from the program itself not from controle panel. If you try to uninstall it from controle panel the programm will be uninstalled it but it will not be able to delete the registry files from your windows vista.

YOU DO HAVE THE CD THE LEXMARK HAS SENT YOU .
THERE IS ONE SOFTWARE IN THT NAME CLEANUP VISTA. INSATLL IT , AFTER UN-INSATLLATION OF THE SOFTWARE IS DONE,
INSTALL CLEANUP VISTA, IT WILL CLEANUP THE REGISTRY FILES WHICH RE LEFT IN THE REGISTRY SYSTEM.
Then second solution is to go this website ftp.lexmark.com
try to download the software - make a clean installtion .

Have you gone online and downloaded the driver from the lexmark.com site?
Have you turned OFF all anti virus software, firewalls and pop up blockers? Turn off programs like Spy Bot, Adaware and spy ware blockers. Spy Bot in particular will make that software hard to load.
It sounds to me like one of your security software programs are stopping your setup. That is a very common problem.

The Lexmark X2500 all-in-one multifunction printericon1.png, discontinued as of May 2011, will not install on Windows Vista or Windows 7 using the installation disc. The installation disc predates the newer editions of the Windows operating system and so you will run into difficulty when trying to install the printer. Lexmark has released up to date drivers on their website. Once you have downloaded the drivers, you can install the printer and begin using the device.

I ave a lexmark 4200 series a three in one... it worked good on my other computer with windows xp cant get it to work with the new one with windows vista says it is not plugged in the computer even when ya...


I had the same problem and can give you the exact instructions I was given and used to fix mine. I am not a tech guru so do not have all the underlying reason about why.

A link will be provided. It is the place to download the updated version of the Lexmark Driver for Vista, whether it be 32 bit or 64 bit, or even Windows 7, etc.

The other thing I had to do was to update Vista; in other words short of a full reinstall of the Vista software is the only way I could get it to work. Do not plug the cable for the Lexmark hardware in until the Vista has completely finished doing the update. If you do update instead of full install with the Vista disc, you can still keep all of your docs, etc.

Link for Lexmark updated drivers:
http://www.lexmark.com/lexmark/sequentialem/home/0,6959,204816596_1019285789_0_en,00.html


1. So to recap: delete all of your printers in control panel.
2. To a complete update with your Vista installation disk.(Make sure the cable to the Lexmark printer is unplugged until Vista finishing installing itself.
3. Install the updated software from the Lexmark link.
4. You may still have to use the Lexmark original installation software to tweak some items for the different applications such as fax versus scanner versus copy, but the main problem for me was no printer or scanner working. I do not use it for fax since I have Efax, so that was not an issue for me.

Good luck.

Problems with downloading printer


This is what Lexmark says to do if you are having trouble loading your drivers:

(a)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:
· Disconnect your USB cable from your printer.
· Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC.
· Download the correct Vista driver for your model.
· 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.

Here is the link to the correct Vista 32bit drivers for the X1100 series.

From the Lexmark Site:
Attention Windows Vista Users: Attention Windows Vista Users

Follow these steps to resolve:

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

I found the drivers by going to My Computer > OS (C:) > Drivers > Printer > deleted the file folder.
I then unpluged the printer, reinstalled the driver from the Lexmark Site (http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi#), restarted and it worked.
Good luck.
