Re: need cd or driver to get new notebook with Vista...
If there is a driver, you can find it at the Lexmark site: www.lexmark.com
Look under "Drivers and Downloads".
I searched on your model number, but got no results, so you should double check the number.

Kodak printer ESP-5 CD version 3.2 is not compatible with Vista. You will need to upgrade to Firmware 4.3 Windows XP/Vista from Kodak Printers. The drivers may be found here: http://www.opendrivers.com/freedownload/280436/kodak-esp-5-all-in-one-printer-firmware-4.3-windows-xp-vista-download.html
From the Lexmark Site: Attention Windows Vista Users: Attention Windows Vista Users If
you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark
Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems
when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.
Follow these steps to resolve: · Disconnect your USB cable from your printer. · Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC. · Download the correct Vista driver for your model. · Install the driver on your PC.
Important - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected.
I found the drivers by going to My Computer > OS (C:) > Drivers > Printer > deleted the file folder. I then unpluged the printer, reinstalled the driver from the Lexmark Site (http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi#), restarted and it worked. Good luck.
What exactly happens when you plug in the USB cable into laptop and turn on the printer?
Does any window pop up that says "New hardware found?" Or if you check in the device manager list, is there a yellow question mark in there anwhere. To check for this question mark,
-Right click on My Computer
-Click on Device Manager
In this window is where the yellow question mark would be. If there is one, this means that your laptop does recognize the printer but have not installed the driver cd as yet.
However, the CD that comes with the printer is not for Windows Vista. To get the drivers for vista you have to go to the drivers and downloads page of http://www.lexmark.com website and download the vista driver.
If none of the above happens and this does not work then it might be another problem.
Let me know what happens.
