Printer problems

I just installed Windows 7. Now my system does not recognize my printer.

I have a Lexmark X1270 and have the most up-to-date drivers available from their website.


Any ideas???

Was the driver for win 7, vista, or xp? If not a win 7 driver you need to install the driver in compatibility mode

Let us know if you need help
