i upgraded to windows 7 from vista. my lexmark x7350 all in one does not work properly. i downloaded and installed the vista x64 driver. it does not have a windows 7 driver- lexmark thinks the vista driver will work. the only way i can print is to restart the computer. this is workable but something of a hassle.

Start bugging Lexmark that it doesn't work

I assume you tried this?

Open control panel and select printers in the "Devices and Printer"
Select your printer.
Right-click the printer in question and select "Properties"
Then click the "ports" tab and un-check/deselect the "enable bidirectional support" checkbox at the bottom.

I agree with bugging Lexmark.. Hewlett Packard and Nvidia both had Windows 7 drivers available before windows 7 was even release to the public. Win 7 has been around long enough for them to properly have drivers for the hardware.

problem was apparently not the driver but my comodo firewall. uninstalled it and installed the vista program, and now my printer seems to work fine.
