I need Postscript drivers for Lexmark printer T630.


Hi.

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.

Regards.

hi there,
I guess you face aproblem in Windows Vista.
Either you try finding appropriate driver for the device for WinVista(see manufaturer's homepage, if there is none, try the WinXP one),
use exra program freeware program like 'burnatonce' or downgrade your whole system to WIN XP pro(new installation of windows after data back-up and having all teh necessary
drivers for your hardware components)
VISTA is still in trial state, ti is probably a beta version you are using...

or u wait for win7...

Good luck

A pirated windows cannot be made genuine in any way. There are patches that just disable the genuine windows check, but the windows still wont be genuine, and you wont be able to download certain updates from Microsoft.

Regarding performance there is no difference between a genuine windows and non genuine one. However non genuine windows does not download all updates, this can cause troubles when a software need the updates.



Always better using genuine Windows.

X3470 Win98/ME drivers link please


Don't get cheated, drivers for Win ME or Win98 for this printer had never been done and do not exist.

When you pay the helpdrivers.com website you get drivers that only work on Win XP, Win 2000 (only title says 98/ME), and you cannot get money back.

If you really want to use this printer you need to upgrade at least to win 2000.

Here is download page for Win 2000.
