    Hi robee2canoby.. i have the same problem. I have a Toshiba laptop and am running Vista. According to the Lexmark site drivers are not yet available for the Lexmark X6150. So i guess its a case of wait and see... Perhaps someone out there has a suggestion regarding compatible drivers??

    Same problem, HP w/Vista 64 bit. I've spent the past two days with HP and Lexmark online support, Lexmark support far better and more dedicated than HP. Had Lexmark techsupport remote into computer twice. Printer worked once until PC reboot, problem returns. Print job is sent to Q where it sits. Status reads as 'deleteing - printed', job doesn't print and can't be deleted. Have to turn on print spooling, delete job from sub-directory windows-sys32-spool-printers. Even the Lexmark techsupport, who I think went above and beyond the call, could not provide permanent fix. NEXT STEP - looking for new printer and considering MAC OS.

    I have connected my X6150 to my HP laptop. The first job sent to print went great. The next job went to Q and sat while it waited for the first job to delete from the Q. It does not clear. The only way to print each job has seemed to be to restar the computer, then the job has printed from the Q. Fax and scanning won't happen at all. Help!

    The Vista drivers available on the Lexmark website do not contain the All-In-One Center. They are minimum drivers.
    Does someone out there has a suggestion regarding compatible drivers for the all-in one??

I had this problem also. After some research I found this was the only way to clear the cue.

Go to Control Panel > Printers > Right click on your Lexmark Printer > Select "Run as Administrator" > select "clear print cue"

It will ask you if you are sure - click yes/ok.

Your print cue will now be clear.

Trying to use task manager will not clear your print cue in the system, only the window notifying you of print cue items.

Unfortunately Vista and the Lexmark 6150 do not get along and this will probably keep happening.

I also have this problem. In order to get my printer to work again, I was having to reboot my system. I have not found a solution, but I have found a work around. I created a batch file that clears the print cue, but that's not enough by itself, I also have to restart the printer. It still sucks, but it sucks a little less.

The batch file I use is:
net stop spooler
del c:\windows\system32\spool\printers\*.* /Q
net start spooler

This has to be run as Admin. So I leave the batch file in my Documents folder and create a shortcut that runs as Admin.

Hope this helps.

Same problem as everyone else. Toshiba laptop, Vista, Lexmark x6150. Easiest thing for me is to turn printer off then back on. It deletes previous job immediately. No need to reboot. I'll remember this when it comes time to buy another printer! (and it won't be Lexmark!)

Found this, don't know if it will help you though. This was 32 bit Vista Home

Making Lexmark x6150 work with Vista Home Premium After many times installing and uninstalling
Lexmark Vista Software (cjrX6100EN), the following worked for me:
Uninstall X6150 software
Go to
Technical support
Search the Knowledge Base
enter "X6150 Vista Driver
Click on "uninstall previous driver
message that appears during install-
ation of Windows Vista Driver".
(Click on this message even if you don't
get it)
Follow instructions that come up.
Important - Disregard the popup window
that says the driver was unsucessfully

Good luck! Posted: 09/18/2007

I encounter the same problem with my lexmark 6150.
Unplug the power first, then
What I did is just clean up the whole unit , used a vacum cleaner
clean all dirty ink stain on the roll bar and sorrounding inner case
with a solvent.
Then I spray using DW-40 to lubricate all mechanical moving parts.
When put power and tried again it works.

I need Postscript drivers for Lexmark printer T630.


This printer supports Postscript, PPDS, and PDF emulation only on systems up to Windows 2000, on Mac OS X up to 10.6, and on Solaris.
Windows 7and Vista are not fully compatible with this printer, and the printer will not have full functionalities on this systems.

If you have Win XP, Win dows Server 2003, Win 98, Win 2000 or Mac OS, then all you have got to do is installing full factory driver software.

If you have Windows 7 or Vista, then you should upgrade the printer to get full features. Lexmark has opted for not updating this printer software. Full software release for Windows Vista and Windows 7 does not exist.

The drivers and software for this printer can be downloaded from Lexmark website, using the links below:

Lexmark_AAG_WinXP_PS_Driver- Post script driver.

System PCL Driver for Microsoft Windows XP and Server 2003

System PCL Driver for Microsoft Windows 2000.

PCL6 driver for Microsoft Windows 95, 98 and Me.

Printing solution for Mac OS X v.10.6.

Print driver for Sun Solaris 10 x86 systems.

Network print support for Linux.

Here the full driver installation procedure : How to install a Lexmark printer without the driver and software disk.

The printer may still work on Vista and Windows 7 using the built in drivers, but it will have limited functionality. See: Windows 7 Information.
