Hi there!
I'm having problems installing my printer on to my computer. Its a new computer (emachine windows vista) as well as the printer. Is there a certain type of printer that needs to be installed with vista or can I install any? I've been having problems since I bought the darn thing last week. I've also tried uninstalling it, but , it won't let me. The first time I installed it, it said installation complete, ready to use. But, everytime I click'd the test page button, I get a popup window saying that there was an error 0000006 or something like that. I also checked to see if it was in the start option, I wasn't able to locate it. It is so frustrating, making me want to go back to windowsxp.. Someone help please!:cry:

You can find Printers by going to the Control Panel - Start > Control Panel -> Printers.

Is your device listed here?

You need to go to the printer and or Microsoft site and make sure that printer has drivers that have been certified for use with Vista.

Hardware manufacturers have been very slow to build and certify drivers for Vista. If the drivers are not ready there is nothing to do but wait or see if you can exchange that printer for one that has Vista certified drivers.

Lexmark released mine on Friday the 9th . X1195 4 in 1 so as stated you need to locate the drivers for Vista

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
