RE: printers
I too am having the same problem with my P3150!!! I am not a happy camper
right now. Someone as smart as Windows should have thought of all these
printer problems, or did they? Has anyone found a printer that does work
with Vista? I got a download of lexmark 1200, but dont have a clue what to
do with it. Can you help me with that? Muskrat

You're not alone. I've seen lots of people complain about unsupported
or missing or not updated drivers for Brother, Epson and Lexmark
printers. Gosh, combined that's a lot.

You MUST download the right driver for your printer model. If you have
a 1100 model and download a 1200 driver you're just wasting your time,
it won't work.

If you can find the driver that fits your model printer just download
the file, click on it and it should be self-extracting archive or a
..exe file and install itself.

That may not be a universal truth <s> HP have a listing of drivers for
other printers to try out to get them working under VISTA.

RE: printers
I have the same problem with my 3150. I sent Lexmark support and email and
from their reply it does not look good. Their rep said they may not update
the driver for that model. I replied and told him that is a pretty lousy
way to sell new printers that will be compatible with Vista. I guarantee
you, if they do not update this driver, Lexmark will be history at my
houselhold. Oh by the way...they never replied.

RE: printers
Please see the reply I got from Lexmark concerning the P3150
Does not look good. Guess I will have to buy another printer and believe
me it will not be a Lexmark:

Thank you for providing us the opportunity to assist you through our e-mail
support service. We appreciate your business, and look forward to providing
you with a prompt and successful solution.

To the best of my knowledge, there are currently no plans to develop
Windows Vista drivers to support this model. Thank you for notifying us of
this request. I will forward your comments on to our development
department, as it is only through input from you, our customers, that we
can make these important business decisions.

If you have any more questions or concerns, please contact me at your
convenience and I will be happy to assist you. (If I am not available,
another representative will reply to you as soon as possible.) To respond,
please select "Reply" in your e-mail software, and be sure that the past
e-mail is included in this reply.

[AOL Users: In order to include the previous e-mail, you must highlight it
with your mouse when you are replying.]

If you need to reply, please be sure to include in your message all
information from prior e-mail messages & replies. If your e-mail client
automatically deletes prior e-mail thread information, it will cause a
delay while we look up your support history. If this is the case you may
want to save the old e-mails as attachments and attach them to the current
e-mail.

RE: printers
When I bought my pc with windows vista a few days ago, I also bought a
Lexmark printer (1200) and they told me that I was going to be able to
install it; however I could not do it. I thought I was doing something wrong,
but I can see that everybody is in the same bout. Can anybody give me an
advice?
