First, Vista has it's own drivers and will assign it's own to your printer when you plug it in. This method will not work with many external devices. Completely disconnect the printer. Then install the lexmark driver. A window will pop up saying that the software being loaded is not approved by windows. Click install anyway. The software will instruct you when it is ok to connect the printer. You may have to go into the printer and faxes (control panel) and delete the current default printer.
Hi more than likely the drivers that came with your printer are not compatible with Windows Vista, below is a link for the X3350 but at present they don't seem to have the X75 Vista drivers listed. If you email their support your should be able to request the driver.
Have link but it won't let me post it
Let me know how you go
there have been many problems with vista with all kinds of kit.... The best thing to do is to go to the Lexmark website and download the latest software drivers for your printer, hopefully that will resolve the issue
