I have a Lexmark X1185 and just got a new computer with Vista. I downloaded the correct driver for Vista, and it all seemed to be working great. However now, if I want to scan something, it doesn't respond at all. I can push the copy button and it scans the picture and prints a copy, but wont scan and save.

I have the same issues with a Lexmark printer, Lexmark printers are not very user friendly with Vista. What I did is create a dual boot with XP and installed the software for the printer there. If interested in that follow these instructions or contact lexmark support.
