Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I am so frustrated. I have a brand new computer and running on Windows Vista. It is not recognizing the Lexmark 1270 printer. I've tried everything. When I hook the printer up to my other computer which is on Windows XP, it runs fine. ??

    yup, I tried downloading the new drivers, but alas, still no connection. Everything else with Vista (finally) seems to be working fine, except the darn printer connection. I've given the printer to my kids who have Windows XP. Sadly I'll have to live without a printer, it seems.

Had a similiar issue with Vista not playing nice with my Dell all in one.
Had to go to the dell site and find a driver for this unit that will work with Vista, but first they will show a list of compatible printers and non-compatible so I would look for that first.
Good luck.

Just got new computer with windows vista now my lexmark p6250 printer dos


Remember that Vista is about 2 years old; any "new" printer first marketed within the last 2 years probably is not recognized by Vista.

Have you accessed LexMark's web-site, and downloaded and installed the device-driver for Vista for your specific model of printer?

The link above is the driver for that printer. Download that driver and then install it. Once you install it, the computer should recognize it.

Printer instalation


Lexmark does not distribute replacement install disk for all models.

Contact Lexmark here, to see if the disk for your printer is available.

If you do not have the disk you must download the software from Internet, follow instructions below,

Click here:Official Lexmark Drivers and Software

A web page will open, follow instructions, select model, select operative system etc., and click on download .
Chose to download the file in my documents when asked.
After downloading, find the file,double click on the file ,then if you get in troubles, follow the instructions below to reset and reinstall drivers:

  • Unplug printer USB.
  • Go to control panel >> installed printers in Windows and remove (delete ) any installed printer from printer list.
  • Download driver from website, or use the disk and run the install file.
  • Follow driver installation wizard.
  • Plug back printer when prompted from installation wizard.
Note:some printer does not work on Vista, if you do not find any driver download for Vista on your model page, that means your model is not Vista compatible.

Print spoolers


In the search bar of the start menu type in "services.msc" without the quote. After hitting Enter you should get the services control panel. Ensure that the print spooler service is started and set to Automatic. If it runs into an error when trying to start it should report what service it causing the problem, ensure that service is also started and set to automatic.

Printer wont instal ><


Did you just install windows Vista?? If you did, disconnect the printer from the computer and reload the lexmark driver. Windows will pop up a message saying that it doesn't recognize the software being loaded. Click to load anyway. The instructions will tell you when it is ok to connect the printer.

Vista tries to install istall its own driver for anything you connect to you computer. Always install the products driver before installing the device.
