Question about Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

I have a Lexmark X5100 series All in One printer. I used it with a Sony Vaio purchased in 2004. I just bought a new Sony with Windows Vista and tried to install it as a printer and it wouldn't go. Is it possible to use it still and what do I have to do to do so? I am not very computer savy, so you need to speak plainEnglish.

I have heard that since this printer is old and discontinued that it is
not compatible with Vista. You can try to partition drive and install
Win2000 or WinXP and it will work.

Test the printer with a computer with Windows XP or Windows 2000 installed. Also, a lot of S/W will only work for XP.

I recommend you use the Lexmark X5150 driver from the Lexmark website. But first, make sure there are no existing Lexmark X5150 driver on your computer. Go to the Start menu -> Programs -> Lexmark X5100 Series -> Tools -> Uninstall. Reboot pc when prompted.
To reinstall, click on this link Lexmark X5150 Drivers.
Select your operating system by clicking on printtech_45.jpg
Then click on FILTER.

Click on the Complete Driver under Recommended Downloads. Download, execute the file and follow the instructions on the software. NOTE: Use Vista driver in Windows 7.
I hope this information has been helpful. Thanks.

I have a home network using a desktop Dell 3000 series computer and want to add a Sony Vaio laptop. My network works ok but I cannot share my Canon i560 printer. Any solutions?


Sony Vaio is operating on Windows 7 and Canon does not supply drivers for my i560 Canon printer. I was able to download a suitable driver from another source. I have since bought a new Epson printer/scanner at a good discount which works well on the Vaio laptop.

Need compatible driver


Lexmark does not have Vista drivers for that printer.

I saw something here about someone making a driver for that machine might work, can't get to the site from work: www.vistax64.com/vista-general/66911-lexmark-z25-vista-drivers.html
