You have to use a Vista printer driver. Is it that you are trying?

And are you sure its a 2300 cos I can't find a 2300.

not sure,there is something about a microsort xps document reader and it asks for you to save to a file.Lexmark wasnt set as default printer but changed that .didnt make any diff

positive.Its about 1-1/2 years old.Printer scanner x2350

click here=::::: there is no Vista driver listed for your scanner/printer. Have you tried calling Lexmark support?

  Totally-braindead 14:45 19 Mar 2007

If its called a X2350 its not a 2300 is it?

Thats why I couldn't find a driver for it. The X2350 is here click here and since there isn't a Vista driver listed I presume, unless Vista has its own driver for it, that it will not work.

See if Vista has a driver in its library for that Lexmark series
Perhaps Lexmark site has Vista drivers - have you ckecked
