    Could you please tell me what operating system running on your Laptop?

    If you have purchased printer recently, use the installation CD and it will automatically load the drivers, and when it prompts for connect then connect the printer via USB cable to PC and power on it.

    If you found any difficulty then reply me the current status as well.

    Regards

You need to connect the printer with an extra cable which can join it through its 25 pin parallel cable. That cable then with USB end connect with the Laptop. and its drivers can be automatically detect by your Vista system.
For Vista 64-bit, the driver for printer and cable should be digitally signed.
Otherwise you need this method for Driver Installation in Windows Vista 64-bit:
The 64-bit version of Windows Vista is the first version of Windows that will only allow signed drivers and this restriction is built-in. For most cable drivers are unsigned and we request you to follow some prerequisites before installing the driver.
Preparing Vista 64-bit for Driver installation:

  • Using the F8 option: Press F8 key on your keyboard while booting your PC. You will get into “Advanced Boot Options”. Select “Disable Driver Signature Enforcement”
  • An F8 Advanced Boot Option introduced with Windows Vista—“Disable Driver Signature Enforcement”—is available to disable the kernel-signing enforcement only for the current boot session. This setting does not persist across boot sessions.
  • Note: Make sure to use F8 option every time you boot/reboot your PC before start working with MCS77XX.
  • Make sure that the User installing the driver must be a member of the Administrator group on the system. 
And for printer driver if you dont have CD then go through this link and follow the steps:

My Lexmark z2300 sends to the printer & it says it's printing, but it doesn't actually print. I've tried several file types & programs to print from but none of them work.


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).

2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

4. Reboot your pc.

5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

6. Wait until your pc fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, then try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
