I have a lexmark 1270 all in one printer it all shows ok and opens ok but when i try to use it it says cannot comunicate with computer. It is usb connection it worked ok with xp but new pc is on vista, i have tried updated drivers but still no good. Any advice please
Did you initially try to install the printer on to your new computer using the old XP driver? If so, did you make sure that you uninstalled this driver before you installed the new Vista driver? If not, then you should do so.
Click Start> Control Panel> Printers Right click a clear area of the Printers window On the menu click on Server Properties Click the drivers tab Select the old printer driver then click Remove
Restart the computer.
Are you quite sure that you've downloaded the correct Vista driver? If not, go to the Lexmark driver download site: click here
Download the Vista driver for your printer (it looks like the file name is cjr1200EN.exe) and install it on your computer (with the printer disconnected from the computer).
The intallation process may tell you when to plug the printer into the computer, but if not, wait until installation is complete before doing so.
