I recently changed ISPs, from Comcast to Charter. I am unable to install my old dinosaur Lexmark printer, model Z22, from the intstallation CD. I get an error message that "spoolers" are not available, or operable, etc.

The spooler service can be started following these directions.
Go to start
Go to run
In the open box type: <cmd> without <>
When the command prompt opens
type: net start spooler <Enter>
This should say that the spooler has started successfully.

Jess01: A driver is basically a communication device between your print device, which is your hardware "meaning can touch it" and printer software that is the language that your print device and computer can read. Your USB cable let's the computer know that your printer is connected. The software is needed so the printer has the language to be able to print what you tell it to.
If you have windows 2000 or xp.
Go to this website.
Scroll down the page 'til you find Lexmark Z22 Color Jet Printer
To the right you will see "download"
Click the link.
Scroll to the bottom you should see "Please enter verification code"
Type the code in and click "download"
Click save.
The software should then be downloaded to your computer.
Go to the location you saved the printer drivers.
There should be a setup file.
Click on that.
The printer should then be recognized and you should be prompted that the printer is going to print a test page.

You could try going to and see if tey have any way of doing it on line otherwise you may have to purchase a disc from them. Most printers you can get updates and drivers (sometimes) on line otherwise you need the actual disc to install the printers on your computer.

My Lexmark z22 printer will not print corretly

“Lexmark does not support the refilling of its ink cartridges. Refilling the ink cartridges can cause them to leak, thus clogging or even damaging the print head. Any damage to your printer caused by refilled ink cartridges may not be covered under warranty”. Please use genuine Lexmark cartridges for best results.

The Z22 does not appear on Lexmarks vista compatability list and so there is no specific vista driver.
There is a driver for Windows XP which you could try

Select Z22 as printer model and search
then choose windows XP from the list of operating systems
