    Run it in compatibilty mode.


    • Right click the setup.exe file for the driver and chose properties.

    • Select the Compatibility tab

    • Check the box that says Run this program in compatibility mode and select Windows XP (SP2) from the drop down menu.

    • If you do not have admin rights on the system, then make sure you do not check Run this program as an Administrator at the bottom of the window.
    Hope that helps.

Lexmark X73 printer printer driver for Windows


Hello, I believe the printer works
with Windows XP and Windows 2000
only but there is no available
driver for Windows Vista. I
visited the Lexmark website to
verify it. Just click on this link if you want to check it out for yourself. http://bit.ly/cQqZbz . Click on the dropdown for Microsoft at the bottom of the page. You'll only see drivers for Windows XP and Windows 2000 only. I hope that would explain why it won't work with your Vista.

Problems installing printer


Hey there,
It's frustrating I know!
It doesn't work in Vista. It is only supported by Windows up to XP. I now have another PC running XP just so I can use my printer!

Here's the XP driver anyway:

http://printers.free-driver-download.com/12570/Lexmark-Printer-Photo-P3150-Driver-1.0.3.0-WinXP-Server-2003.html


Right-clicking on the driver application and clicking Properties to Enable XP Compatibility in the Compatibility tab doesn't work either, it just doesn't have support beyond XP, so you'll have to do what I did and load up XP on another machine if you want to use you printer!

Wish I had better news for you, mate!
Good Luck

The Z22 does not appear on Lexmarks vista compatability list and so there is no specific vista driver.
There is a driver for Windows XP which you could try

http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi?ccs=227:1:0:0:0:0

Select Z22 as printer model and search
then choose windows XP from the list of operating systems

Laptop not communicating with printer windows xp


Vista uses a different driver. Here is Lexmark Support Page:

Lexmark Support

Enter your printer (X1270) and it will take you to the tech support page for your printer. Click "Download Driver". Next page select Vista as your operating system. Next page select "Download Now". It's a large file...40MB.

Save it on your desktop and when the download is done, double click the icon on your desktop to install.

Communication problem with notebook/printer


You've encountered 1 of the many issues with Vista. The OS is so gargantuan that Microsoft had to ax many of the drivers that were included with XP.

http://www.lexmark.com/lexmark/sequentialem/home/0,6959,204816596_1019285789_0_en,00.html

Copy & paste the above URL into your web browser & that will take you right to the driver download page. Select the red highlighted "Driver Download" for the 1200 series printers. This will send you to the Operating System selection page. Once selected you'll see the red highlighted .exe file. Select "download now". You should see a pop-up asking you to save the file. I like to send downloads to the desktop to facilitate installation of the software. You can later drag & drop it into whatever folder you like.

Make sure to remove the XP drivers before installing the Vista drivers. Also remember to unplug the USB cable from the printer prior to installing the Vista drivers. The installation software will prompt you when to re-install the USB cable.

Good luck.

Installation of a downloaded driver for Lexmark X1290 All-In_One


For those of you who have downloaded the appropriate vista driver for your printer. Go to device manager on pc (control panel, hardware and devices etc) Select uninstall printer driver, as you want any old references to xp one deleted. Now, place new disc or dicc with new driver files in and your install new hardware program shopuld self start. IF not you can manually do it by going to add new hardware wizard, and select own information to suit yopur needs. But win vista should automatically find the new drivers.
