Follow these steps to resolve: · 1) Disconnect your USB cable from your printer. · 2) Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC. · 3) Download the correct Vista driver for your model. · 4) While leaving the USB unconnected, 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.

after each print page. I went into the Control Panel/Printers - Right
click on the HP Photosmart 7200 series icon and choose delete. Don't
worry...just delete it. Right above (Vista) click on Add a Printer - it's going to ask you if you want to add a local printer which is connected via USB connection or if you are set up wireless then choose Network It will find your printer click on the printer hit next - then this is the most important step It will ask you to find the manufacturer it shows Hewlett-Packard and underneath it shows HP - Do not click on HP - you'll have the same problem with that driver - choose Hewlett-Packard and find this driver HP Photosmart C7200 series Version 184.108.40.206 [3/23/07] Hopefully they are all digitally signed with this information. Click on that driver and click next - then click on replace the current driver and click next. Print a test page and problem should be solved. Hope it helped!
