Unable to set up X75 on Laptop which has Vista Premium and X75 is XP. Contacted Lexmark and told they have no plans for Vista driver for this.
I replied saying does this mean my X75 is obsolete.
Waiting for reply

Try this.
Plug in printer.
go to Printer and Faxes and select install new printer.
When disk or select from list comes up
Take 'Select from list'
Select Lexmark from list of makes
Select the X75 from model list.
Go for it and good luck.

I believe there are some workarounds for this. It doesn't work in all cases but some devices can be run using win XP drivers. I assume its similar to the compatability mode in XP. Suggest you look in the Vista Forum and if you find nothing there start a thread in there asking about it.
Its a similar situation I had when I moved to XP. My scanner manufacturer did the same, no XP drivers but I did manage to get it working under win 2000 drivers. Needless to say when I needed a new scanner theres was the one make I didn't bother with.
If they can't be bothered supporting you who has spent money on their products then do what I did. Don't buy from them again.

The x75 driver has not been updated for a few years now.So very unlikely there will be a Vista driver,however if your willing to try a driver from the 1100 series,you may just get the printer to print.click here

Yes it is, I tried to setup a Lexmark on Vista and gave up on it after trying different drivers. Not my comp, He now as a Cannon running on it. You are seeing Vista at it's best
