Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

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.

Lexmark all in one printer don't install on vista. is there a patch


You may want to see if the Printer is actually compatible with Windows Vista first before you try anything else.

If your Printer is Listed Below, then unfortunately it will not run on your system unless you format the machine and downgrade to Windows XP. (Or obviously you can wait until the device is supported, but to be honest that could be months, years).

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
