Check and ensure the driver is for that model, and that you have used the suppllied software disk to do all installs. essentially, delete the hardware from your unit, do an add/reomvoe software from the control panel...completely reinstall the unit.
check the device also.

    Microsoft says that Error 1706 is a Microsoft Office Error code which
    indicates that required files can not be found by Setup. Since you
    are trying to install new programs I feel that this is probably the
    correct interpretation of your error code.

    Computer will not communicate with printer


    Go out to Lexmark web site and look for a vista update in their software download section. So this should solve your problem.Most of the cds which come with equipment do not contain vista software and drivers.
