Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I was installing my new Lexmark X4850 printer and while using the install disc, the following popped up: "this has not passed Windows Logo testing to verify it's compatability with Windows XP. Contact the hardware vendor." It gave me the option of continuing the install (which I did) or terminating the install. Am I compromising the security of my PC by installing it anyway? I run XP

In fact, you are compromising the security to some degree. And the degree depends on where this driver thing came from. If it is some strange solution from nobody, you'd better don't touch it. While it is bundled with you lexmark printer in a install disc, probably it's no harm at all.

I need a disc to install my Lexmark X5150 printer on my new computer. I have misplaced the old disc. Where can i get another one?


Lexmark does not distribute replacement install disk for all models.

Contact Lexmark here, to see if the disk for your printer is available.

If you do not have the disk you must download the software from Internet, follow instructions below,

Click here:Official Lexmark Drivers and Software

A web page will open, follow instructions, select model, select operative system etc., and click on download .
Chose to download the file in my documents when asked.
After downloading, find the file,double click on the file ,then if you get in troubles, follow the instructions below to reset and reinstall drivers:

  • Unplug printer USB.
  • Go to control panel >> installed printers in Windows and remove (delete ) any installed printer from printer list.
  • Download driver from website, or use the disk and run the install file.
  • Follow driver installation wizard.
  • Plug back printer when prompted from installation wizard.
Note:some printerdoes not work on Vista, if you do not find any driver download for Vista on your model page, that means your model is not Vista compatible.

hey there,

To install your printer to your computer you would need an installation CD but that is not the only way you can add your printer to your computer. You can download the drivers from the following website. Just select what version of windows you have and you will be able to download the drivers and install your printer successfully. I am 99% certain that this will solve your problem. Here is the site

Almost certainly you need to update your driver although I thought Vista already had this driver. Anyway try downloading Vista Printer driver from link and reinstalling your printer.

Many applications are created using Microsoft NET Framework and therefore it needs to be installed on your system in order for them to run properly.
