How to install my Lexmark X1150 Printer on my computer

The printer is compatible, it's just that there is no win 7 driver. According to their site, you can just use the Vista driver:

click the win 7/8 support link on the page.

Will a lex mark z 12 be compatible with window vista

I don't see why it wouldn't be. Try running the driver installs in windows 98 compatability mode. Right click on the file go to properties and find compatability

Look in the search engine for Z730
You haven't stated which OS you use, so I couldn't give you the exact link.

Lexmark x2470 not compatable with MacBook

This printer will not work on your machine. It's for windows only. You need to find a printer that is supported by your Mac OS or by Linux. Lexmark never put out any form of Unix based driver for it so there is no solution. You could probably network to it using more hardware but for what it will cost it's easier just to get a printer that will work directly from your machine.

Bought a new computer had windows Vista on it my printer lexmark x4270 worked in my old windows XP,but it don't work with Vista. I tried to get a driver for it but no luck. where can I get a driver . I...

This usually happen with an old printer and new computer with new OS.
You can try downloading your new driver for Vista at Lexmark website here:,6959,204816596_652569478_0_en,00.html

If doesn't work, ask to customer service for assistance

But at this point:

1) is better to get a new printer compatible with Vista


2) Downgrade your OS to one compatible with your printer.

This will fix your problem.

Will a lexmark 5000 work on a windows 98 pentium 2. If so do i need another driver?

yes it does. and you need the drive from the lexmark site.
go here and type your printer model (5000) select the color printer.
A new page will come up. Select the Windows you have (Windows 98).
Click download. When it finishes, open the file in the Windows 98 computer and install. it will tell you when to plug your printer in the port.

Lexmark Z23

If the box says that you can use it on Windows 98 then the required driver should be on the CD that came with the printer.

There was not a Windows 98 driver listed on the Z23 support page.
