Windows 7: Lexmark drivers

Lexmark drivers

Hey guys,

I recently installed Windows 7 7000/7022/7048, and also installed the 64bit drivers for my Lexmark X5150. The problem is i can't print sometimes, it comes in the printing dialog or It prints but when i send a second set it keeps saying deleting the first set. Or it does not print until I restart print spooler, and it starts printing the one that was "deleting". Its seems like Lexmark never learns.. I had this problem too in Vista.
If anyone can shed a light on this problem it would be great..
Thanks!

I could only find these drivers for your printer. The site did mention a universal driver but no download link?

I am using the ones that are on the Lexmark site. And those are the buggy ones..
Any other ones or fix?

I don't think any other drivers are available at the moment.

Mine is Working!!!! (X2470)

Here's how I got my Lexmark printer to work in Windows 7:

I have a X2470, but hopefully this will work for others as well.

1. Download the Vista drivers for your printer. For me it was cjr2400EN.exe

2. Do NOT click on the file to execute it! Instead, right click it and unzip to another folder (mine was named cjr2400EN).

3. In that folder, find Setup.exe. Right click on that file.

3. In Properties, select Compatibility.

4. Select Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows Vista

5. At the bottom, check Run this program as an administrator.

6. Click Apply and ok.

7. Then, click on the setup file as you normally would to install. From that point on my install was normal and the printer seems to work fine.

Hope this helps!

After weeks of messing with my Lexmark X6570, the above information worked. If you have already tried to install the drivers, uninstall everything first, then do the above.

If you double click on the download and it starts unzipping, no worries. After it unzips, close it out and go to the directory it unzipped to, usually C:/Lexmark/drivers/6500/setup (or whichever number driver you are using).

Thanks wetherb67!

Excellent, Wetherb67...saved me a ton of time. My Lexmark X6150 prints and scans now! It would probably print even better if it weren't so low on ink but I think I'm on my own there.

The printer was my only real issue in the install...cool!

This worked for me and my X5270, with one small change: I had to "enable bidirectional communications". Thank you, so much, for ur great directions, as even a pc dummy like me was able to follow.
