aglaess,
Welcome to Vista Forums......

Before jumping off the cliff...take 2 steps backwards and tell us what is you make and model of your printer.
Please fill in system specs so we can refer to them if more help is needed down the road.

Here's the link for Lexmark installer.
Download this and then, if needed, go to Lexmark.com and select the 4270 series driver for your correct OS.
Post back if more help needed.

Aglaess,
Do you still have the Lexmarx or a brand new printer?
If so what kind so we can look for the drivers.

Name: Device
Type: Reg_SZ (String Value)
Value: winspool,Ne00

(just leave winspool,Ne00 . delete the name of the printer)...restart.....and :D works...fine!!!
