Windows 7 drivers for Lexmark 4800 series

Hi guys, I'm new in here, som thanks in advance for your help.
Some months ago I bought a Lexmark 4800 series printer (scanner, fax) that I'm using with a Windows XP laptop, connected via wifi to my home router.
Now I'm trying to do the same with another laptop, this one with Windows 7, but I haven't been able to do it till now. I've even tried with an USB cord, with no success.
Any help, please?

I've done it from Windows 7 and also with the printer original disc, with the same result (negative).

Lexmark x4850 Windows 7 driver does not allow install of OCR

Every time I try to scan, the scanning option says I need to install the OCR from the CD Rom. I downloaded the windows 7 driver, v 5/11/2010. S0, there seems to be a problem. Any ideas?

Welcome to SevenForums
Did you get your driver for your printer from this page link
Lexmark - United States
Did you install in compatibility mode like in this tutorial

Good luck to you.
