I have installed the printer that was windows xp, was told that it was compatible with windows Vista, works fine if I printing things from my computer, but when I need to make a scan a copy and print ,have to use the button on the front of the printer and that not always successful.
I since I download the printer I have not been able to find the Lexmark solution center
Hope there is a solution to this, I haven't a clue what to do next to correct this issue if its possible at all
Thank you in advance for any assistance with suggestions to help keep my sanity lol Juneabee

According to Lexmark official site there is no driver for windows vista. My recommendation would be to download the driver for xp , and to try to launch it . After you download the xp driver , right click > properties> compatibility> and select "run this program is compatibility with" choose windows xp from the drop-down list . I hope it will work this way . Good luck
I have a Lexmark 1100 series printer that works with my Dell XPS M1530. So it is possible. I found this driver, http://www.xpvistasite.com/lexmark_x5130_8613.htm.
I never mess with the printer cd. I just pluged it in and vista found a driver for it. I only use the printer and the scanner.
Not really, If you like vista and dont want poxy xp back, then from vista install using Microsoft Virtual machine Windows XP, thiscanrun from within a window like any other app, just intall the bare stuff, and install theprogram you use to print from,and then install your printer, easy.
But ultimatley the 3rd party vendors do need to keep upwith the times, most other makes of printer will working without downloading any other driver, but Lexmark make there money on inks not printers, so they dont really care at the end of the day.
Just install VM ware or similar, install XP and printer, and your sorted.
