Lexmark X1150 won't fax on new computer witrh Vista
I recently bought a new Dell with Home Vista Premium. My Lexmark would not install with the CD--so I followed what you told me to do as far as where to download software that would work--and it did!! :) However, now when I go to use the "fax" function on the Lexmark--it says I don't have that part downloaded and to use the CD to download--which we all know doesn't work. :) Is there any fix for this. I need to fax something like yesterday! :)

you need to go to the "lexmark.com website" and download the new "vista" driver, it was looking for XP, and they are two different programs, also you can go to "control panel", and Open scanners and Printers, and see if the vista "hardware wizard" picks it up, and installs it too, let me know if this helps, god bless......
Goto www.lexmark.com and select the Drivers&Downloads tab at the top. Click driver finder. Click in the "Search by Model" and enter your printer model and select Windows Vista driver .. Download and install it.
I have Windows Vista Home Premium and I am thinking about getting one of the X5070m printers. I talked to my computer repair tech first to get his opinion and he told me to load the program disc first and follow the step by step instructions and NOT to connect the printer until it tells you to. So yes, uninstall and reinstall the program and follow the above and you should be set. If not...let me know before I buy one too.
No Vista Drivers
Two thing to try.
1. Go to the Lexmark site and seek out Vista drivers for your model.
2.Go to start/printers and Faxes/install new printer.
When you are given the choice CD or from list
select 'From List'
Go to make - Lexmark
Go to Model 4300[or any 4000 series if you do not see 4300]
Tell us what happens
Finally be preparde to sport out on a new printer that is Vista Compatable
