Ahh..a talking printer..nice upgrade..

do you have a current driver(other than the one that came on the disk, which MAY be obsolete)..

get a new one here(click on printer drivers and find the icon for Lexmark). then enter model number and find driver for your operating system.

un plug printer from computer..re install software. plug in printer as directed.

I have a computer with the Vista software and I'm having problems connecting a printer. The computer is a Gateway and the printer is Lexmark X4550.


The reason you are having problems is because you need to install the driver for the printer. The driver is the software that allows the operating system and the printer to communicate.

For your specfic printer , you can download the driver here: http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/PRINTER/LEXMARK/Lexmark-X4550-Printer-Driver-10111.shtml

Simply download it and run the setup , it will install the printer for you and you should be able to print!

I have a Lexmark X75 all-in-one which I would like to keep but when I try to install it on my new printer I get an error message saying that it is not supported by VISTA. Help! I have looked for new driver...


Sorry to be the bringer of bad news but Lexmark have decided they want everyone to buy new printers to use with Vista: they are not going to write vista compatible ones.

If you phone Lexmark and make a lot of noise about it some people have found they are offered discounts on new printers, but there is no guarantee you will be one of them. Good luck.

You need to reconfigure the port. Go to the printer icon in "Control Panel" and open "Printers."

You will see that your printer is "Offline."

Rt Click on the printer and select "Properties." Click on the "Ports" Tab, highlight your printer by clicking on it and then select "Configure Port." This will open a new window where you then click on "Configure." In the next window choose DHCP (Radio Button) and wait until finished.

Remember back where you first started, Rt click your printer again and choose "Use Printer online." When the process is finished close all windows and you will be printing.

This also works with many of the Dell Photo printers as they are made by Lexmark. Unfortunately you may find that if you turn your computer off it may go "offline" again and you will have to do this process all over again. Good Luck.

Z600 ran out of ink. Got new Lexmark refil Black.Still getting a problem communicating from printer to computer. Think that the printer port is unknown. How can I tell where the port is?


I am embarassed to admit that the problem was a simple one of not having the USB cable properly connected between printer and computer!
Thank you for taking the time to help me nonetheless with a perieved problem.
