Reinstalling the OS is a last resort, if you are confident enough, use regedit. Remove the printer first then run regedit select Edit, find and type in lexmark then enter. delete any referance to lexmark from your registary F3 will take you on to the next occurance of lexmark, when you have deleted all the referance restart PC. Then reload the driver.

I recommend not to plug the printer to your computer yet. Try uninstalling by clicking on the Windows logo Start menu > All Programs/ Programs > Lexmark 1200 Series folder > Tools > Uninstall. Then restart pc. To reinstall, I suggest you use the updated driver from the Lexmark website. Here's the link: http://bit.ly/9Xw7bN. Choose the correct driver compatible with your computer's operating system. Download and install the software. Follow the instructions. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.
Usually, that can easily be resolved by uninstalling the printer completely, then reinstalling it. To uninstall properly, click on the Windows logo Start menu > Programs > Lexmark 6500 Series folder > Tools > Uninstall. Then restart pc. To reinstall, you can use the installation cd or if you don't have it or you lost it and since you have dial-up which is slow in terms of downloading, you can contact Lexmark Technical Support for assistance. They'll be able to send you one for free. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.
I would say the salesman just wanted to sell you a printer

Copy & paste the above URL into your web browser & that will take you right to the driver download page. Select the red highlighted "Driver Download" for the 1200 series printers. This will send you to the Operating System selection page. Once selected you'll see the red highlighted .exe file. Select "download now". You should see a pop-up asking you to save the file. I like to send downloads to the desktop to facilitate installation of the software. You can later drag & drop it into whatever folder you like.
Make sure to remove the XP drivers before installing the Vista drivers. Also remember to unplug the USB cable from the printer prior to installing the Vista drivers. The installation software will prompt you when to re-install the USB cable.
Since you upgraded your OS... you should also upgrade your memory and also the video card.... 2000 has so many features because it is designed to be used for servers. These features eats memory and processing power.
