    I bought a Lexmark1200 series all-in oneafter getting windows vista because I was told that my old printer wasn;t compatable with Wiindows Vista. The printer will not print. I have connented and disconnedted as it says. It also says check firewall and I don't know what that is. I onln started fooling with a computer after I became disabled to have something to keep me occupied but I would like to have a printer since I finally learned to use .it.Anne Terrell ([email protected] strato.net

Where to find drivers for Tanberg SLR6


You have to be sure the computer has the correct software to recognise the hardware and can work with it. From Windows 7 and up, for all hardware that is certified with Microsoft, you can download the drivers from Microsoft. Lots of hardware is recognised when connected and will initiate a download from Microsoft. But not all hardware will do so and not all hardware is compatible (same as not certified by Microsoft from Windows 7 and up) with the new operating systems.

Most things that worked fine with Windows XP and or Vista, can fail with Windows 7 and 8, because the factory that made the hardware in the first place does not ask for certification with Microsoft for their old Hardware. They only spend time and money to get their new hardware certified on the new operating systems.

So most of the time the drivers that came with your tape drive, could be used with the operating systems of that time. Till Windows XP, you could install drivers yourself, even old and outdated drivers most of the time worked. In the newer OS'n you ran out of luck.

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.

Laptop not communicating with printer windows xp


Vista uses a different driver. Here is Lexmark Support Page:

Lexmark Support

Enter your printer (X1270) and it will take you to the tech support page for your printer. Click "Download Driver". Next page select Vista as your operating system. Next page select "Download Now". It's a large file...40MB.

Save it on your desktop and when the download is done, double click the icon on your desktop to install.

Lexmark won't work with vista


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.

Just one of the joys of having Vista

The only way i can get my Lexmark X1270 to scan is to use the Windows Vista "Windows Photo gallery" to scan :

Start > All Programs > Windows photo Gallery > File > Import from Camera or scanner > select the scanner > save scanned file to your computer

This is the only way I have been able to use the scanner on my lexmark X1270,hope it works for you too.Be lucky.
