Well, here's the problem.

Lexmark has compatibility lists of all their printers with various OS's and the Z25 IS on the Windows XP
List with a downloadable driver.

Here's the bad news:

Lexmark's compatibility list for Windows Vista does NOT include the Z25.

Sorry, but they simply have not written a driver for your printer that works with Vista.

    Note from Lexmark at the bottom of their Windows Vista compatibility list:

    provide support for legacy products based on consumer demand and the
    continued evolution of technology standards. Support for legacy
    products is eventually withdrawn as we continue to focus on products
    with the new standards.

    However, if there is, as ultimitloozr suggests, a driver that ships with Vista
    that covers the range of your printer, you can at least get it to print from Vista, but the programs normally supplied by Lexmark that add functionality, and features will still not be available from Lexmark.

Hay! my laptop is toshiba satellite A135 s4527 home vista. but i run my laptop with oprating system windows XP2. how it possible. please help me

Hello and welcome to fixya.

In your case, im assuming you refer to the "Vista sticker" that is on the laptop. If a computer is vista-compatible this doesn't mean that it is not able to run older Operating Systems (such as Windows XP SP2) as well.

The sticker on the laptop just referes to the type of Operating System that came pre-installed with it. Now if you bought the laptop and asked your salesman for a DOWNGRADE TO XP Operating System or if this is what he understood then it will probably come with Windows XP instead of Vista Home.

This also applies if you are working for a company in which case the company's IT Department will decide what type of Operating System is to be installed on this computer.

Overall: Newer computers/laptop models that support Windows Vista can also run Windows XP

ALSO: Check for the OEM sticker in the back of the laptop or bottom (it looks like THIS for XP or THIS for windows vista Home Premium). This determines whether you can use a vista DVD to upgrade your computer later from XP to Vista.

If you have any more questions just let me know.

I buy a new laptop a samsung r440 and i work with windos 7. I install the drivers of the ux1 downloaded from line 6, but when i hear music or im using the gearbox. I can play only 2 min app. and it goes...

it could be a software error, it could be a hardware error. it could also be a trial version of the program your trying to run.

Windows Vista and windows 7 are both GARBAGE operating systems, and have compatibility issues with everything. they even have problems with their own software crashing and such. Im not bashing your operating systems ( i actually love windows 7 ) but i only use it when i have to, because its slow and it has lots of ISSUES.
when in doubt ~ try uninstalling the software , restart the pc, then reinstall it and see it it gets better. SOME STUFF JUST WILL NOT WORK WITH WINDOWS. and if you have 64 bit like me LOTS of stuff isnt programmed for 64 bit operating systems, so they screw up all the time
