Your Lexmark X1270 printer was designed for rosoft Windows 2000; Microsoft Windows XP; Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64; Microsoft Windows Vista; Microsoft Windows Vista x64; and Microsoft Windows 7 as it is indicated in its webpage. Remember, drivers and softwares are always limited from the manufacturer's releases. I recommend that you upgrade your printer to a Mac compatible printer. You may choose from this LINK.
I hope this works for you. Kindly reply/comment for further assistance. Good Luck!
I suggest not to plug the Lexmark X1270 printer to your computer yet. Check if your Vista is running on 32-bit or 64-bit operating system by clicking on the Windows logo Start menu > right click on Computer > Properties. Then download the driver using this link: http://bit.ly/bXZRXb (for 32-bit) or this link: http://bit.ly/a36jJl (for 64-bit). Execute the file and follow the instructions on the software. Hope this helps.
You can download software that is usually found on CDs that ship with the printer. Lexmark support has the following files for your X1270. Be sure to download the correct one for your operating system:
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.
