Can anyone help me install my printer on my new laptop?
The laptop has windows 7 on it (32 bit), the printer is a Lexmark X5470 (all in one).
The problem is that there are no drivers available for win7 yet.
at the helpdesk and on every forum I went to for help, they told me to install the Vista driver (cjr5400EN) and that should work on Win7. ... no
I tried to set the compatibility to Vista in the setup file before executing, tried running as administrator,..... still no luck...
I keep getting an error that windows can't find the drivers.
When I did the last (vista compatibility and run as admin) I can get the windows problem solver to work.
When I tried to install the driver without changing anything, the windows problemsolver gives me an error: "0x80070035 "problemsolver has a problem
solving the problem" ... grrrrr
(which I think has something to do with a digital signature that isn't recognized by win7?)
anyway, I'm about to pull out my hair and I'm this close to installing winxp again ... someone help please!
