In My Computer, (or Computer as it is called in Vista) look for the address bar, which should have something like this in:

"> Computer >"

Click once in an empty space on that bar, then type in (exactly as written:

c:\drivers\printer\5200

That should get you where you need to be.

I have a new computer. It has windows vista home. Does not recognize my disc. I have a Lexmark 5200 Series printer that I love. It is not on the list. Can you help me load my printer?


Hey jean,

Lexmark 5200 is not supported on vista, i guess lexmark was too lazy to make the drivers. what you can try is : to download and use the drivers for the 5300 series from the link http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi

i hope it works for you

cheers

My windows vista Business cannot install my Lexmark X83 All-in-one printer!


Lexmark is not officially making any driver for the X83 that will work with Vista because its a 32 bit printer and Vista is 64 bit. Sounds like some BS to me. So, I have the same problem, a perfectly working printer and an incompatible OS. My Mom was using an old mac and had an X83 printer which she loves. She now has a new PC running Vista. Only now, I have the problem of how to get the X83 to work with Vista. Supposedly the lexmark 5200 drivers will work. My suggestion is to power off and unplug the USB cable to the X83, and manually remove any driver(s) related to it that may have been installed using the system control panel device manager. Then attempt to install the xp driver for X83 per the post below. I'm going to then plug in the USB cable and power up the printer and see if it works (it probably won't) but I'm hoping it'll then cue itself looking for the 5200 series drivers which supposedly do work according to one post on MS forum, I quote:

"After reading all these posts I was both discouraged, but more determined than ever to get my X83 to run on Vista. I have to say the determination payed off! That's right...I just both scanned and printed 7 pages on my X83 running on Vista!!!! Here's what I did. I first installed the XP driver for X83 hoping I could dumb my laptop down to make it run on an XP version....no luck there, but when I did that, my laptop recognized the X83 as a Lexmark 5200 series which is also an all in one. I thought, well, if that's what it wants, that's what I will give it. If you go to the Lexmark website and look under downloads/drivers, there is a list that shows all compatible OS. The 5200 series is listed here with a Vista compatible driver. Once I downloaded it and went through the installation wizard....it worked LIKE A DREAM!!!! I hope this helps all of you as I also understood and felt your frustrations! Good luck!!!"

Printer driver for mac


There "may" be one possible solution, which people have had success at.

The Dell 922 printer is the same as a Lexmark X5270

Lexmark has Mac OS X drivers for their version of it.

If you have Mac OS X, the driver can be obtained here:

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

Important - Delete old installs

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. (For more information Click Here)
· Download the correct Vista driver for your model. (Click Here)
· Install the driver on your PC. (Click Here)

Hi, What exactly happens when you plug in the USB cable into laptop and turn on the printer? Does any window pop up that says "New hardware found?" Or if you check in the device manager list, is there a yellow question mark in there anwhere. To check for this question mark, -Right click on My Computer -Select Hardware -Click on Device Manager In this window is where the yellow question mark would be. If there is one, this means that your laptop does recognize the printer but have not installed the driver cd as yet. However, the CD that comes with the printer is not for Windows Vista. To get the drivers for vista you have to go to the drivers and downloads page of http://www.lexmark.com website and download the vista driver. If none of the above happens and this does not work then it might be another problem. Let me know what happens. Lolita
