Question about Lexmark X5150 All-In-One InkJet Printer
To my knowledge, the Lexmark X75 is not Vista compatible. this is the reason why your "Installation Software Disk will not install". Further, the Lexmark site does not list any drivers for this model and they have issued a bulletin that they have no plans of coming up with Vista drivers for "discontinued" products. Sorry.
Offhand, am afraid your only option is for the purchase of a Vista compatible printer.
Alternately, you can try;
Since Vista supposedly has drivers for many printers pre-installed, though they are very basic and often will not allow other features to function fully, you can try auto-detect/install. The idea is to connect your printer to the PC/Laptop without installing the XP driver CD and 'keep your fingers crossed'; or
Force a bare install. Pop in the XP CD but do not install (exit). Rather, open the contents of the CD and look for an ".inf" file, right click to install and see if Vista will take it from there. There night be a couple of them inside the CD.
If your X75 still did not install by either alternative method, guess it will have to be a new printer..
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
