Hi ksc1027,

Sorry to to have to tell you, but it's time for a new printer.
Lexmark has not released Vista drivers for the X75.

At least you won't need to waste any more time looking.
If you know someone still using XP (I still do), see if they would like a new acquisition.

Remember: Good things come to those who Rate!

Lexmark 2735 printer (set as default printer) does not respond on my windows 7 p.c.


Hi,

I assume you meant a Lexmark Z735 printer.

This is an older printer, but the printer may work with Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional or Ultimate. You can try to install the driver for Windows Vista, BUT MAKE SURE you install the correct driver for your system. Check to see if you have a 32 bit or 64 bit system and install the appropriate driver. Check this link first:

www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/Search.aspx?s=Lexmark%20Z735&type=Hardware

You should uninstall the current driver first.

Then see these links:

I cant install it on windows 7


Try downloading the Vista driver. Make sure that you select the 32- or 64-bit version, as needed, from http://support.lexmark.com/index?locale=EN&page=product&userlocale=EN_US&productCode=LEXMARK_Z605&focusedTab=DOWNLOADS#4 . Click on filter to get the correct file. To check the version of Windows that you have, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If you see x64 after the OS version name, get the 64-bit driver. Otherwise you need the 32-bit driver.

Make sure to disconnect the data cable between the computer and the printer, if you have connected it. Uninstall any problem driver (generic from the Windows OS or a failed Lexmark driver install) before installing the new driver.

If you still have problems, uninstall the driver again. Then use the compatibility mode. Right click on the exe file that you downloaded from Lexmark and choose Properties. Under the Compatibility tab, check the box for "Run this program in the compatibility mode" and select Vista. Then right click again and choose "Run as Administrator".

I hope this helps.

Is a 64-bit windows compatible version available?


The Windows® Vista Program Compatibility Wizard can allow older programs that were not designed for use with Windows® Vista to run on Windows® Vista.

The Program Compatibility Wizard prompts you to test the program in different modes (environments) and with various settings. For example, if the program was originally designed to run on Windows® XP, set the compatibility mode to Windows® XP and try running the program again. If successful, the program will start in that mode each time. The wizard also allows the use of different settings, such as switching the display to 256 colors and the screen resolution to 640 x 480 pixels.

To run the Program Compatibility Wizard, complete the steps below:
  1. Close all programs and windows and return to the desktop.
  2. Click the Start button on the Windows® taskbar. The Start Menu will appear.
  3. Click on Control Panel. The Control Panel window will appear.
  4. Click on Programs. Additional program options will display.
  5. In the Programs and Features section click the link Use An Older Program With This Version of Windows. The Program Compatibility Wizard will launch.
  6. Click Next to Continue.
  7. Click the “I want to choose from a list of programs” radio button and click Next. A list of programs will display.
  8. Select the program that is to run in a Compatibility Mode and click Next to continue. A list of Compatibility Modes will display.
  9. Click the radio button next to the desired Compatibility Mode and click Next. A list of display settings will display.

    NOTE: These display settings are not available options in Windows® Vista. They are only available when running a program in Program Compatibility Mode. The only reason to choose either of these settings is if you are experiencing difficulty installing or running an older application designed to run in Windows® 95, Windows® ME or Windows® 98. If all options remain unchecked, then the current Colors and Screen Resolution settings will not be altered.

    By default, Windows® Vista uses visual themes that may change the appearance or behavior of other programs, especially those games or educational programs that include intensive graphics and animation. To prevent the visual themes from affecting these programs, check Disable Visual Themes.

  10. Choose the desired display settings and click Next to continue. Administrator privilege options will display.
  11. Choose the desired administrator privilege setting and click Next to continue. A Test Your Compatibility Settings window will display.
  12. Verify that the settings are correct. And click Next to continue.

    NOTE: If the settings are not correct, click the Back button to return to the previous screen (or screens) and make the necessary changes.

  13. With the correct settings selected and showing in the "Test Your Compatibility Settings" window, click Next. The selected program will launch.
  14. Run the program to test the settings.
  15. After testing the settings, or close the program to return to the Program Compatibility Wizard.

    NOTE: After the program is closed, a window with the question "Did the program work correctly?" will appear. The "Yes. Set this program to always use these compatibility settings" will be selected.

  16. If the program functioned properly using the compatibility mode that was selected above click Next. The Program Compatibility Data window will open.

    NOTE: If the program did not function correctly, click "No, try different compatibility settings" and complete the Wizard. After completing the wizard, try the program again.

  17. Choose Yes or Now and click Next to continue. The Completing the Program Compatibility Wizard window will appear. Click Finish to close the window.
  18. Launch and use the program.
NOTE: If you have questions regarding the Program Compatibility Wizard or Windows® Vista (or both), contact Microsoft®, or go to http://www.microsoft.com for additional information.

Driver for windows vista my lexmark x75 not function


It does not appear that Vista is capable of supporting such an old printer.

I just checked the Lexmark Web Site and I do not see a driver for the X75 under the OS Compatibility guide.
