Lexmark z705 driver isn't downloading on Vista!

When the installation disc wouldn't work, I tried following all of the instructions to download a driver for my lexmark model on the lexmark site. Nothing happens!!

I find my printer on lexmark.com, I click on download for the Vista driver, then I click Save File (I've also tried Run this program now), then the driver downloads on my computer and acts like it's installing.

I click on the file, then the winzip extractor starts.

Then a Lexmark box pops up and guides me through "installation"...asks if I agree to terms of use, talks about firewall enabling (I have temporarily disabled my firewall during the "installation" process) then makes motions like it's downloading and installing the printer.

And then...nothing! No new printer on my Printers page, no icon on my desktop, no printer available anywhere!

I am extremely frustrated and REALLY don't want to have to buy a new printer. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

    I've tried with the printer disconnected but then the process won't go any further until I connect. Then it does the same thing. Nothing.

Make sure the printer is not connected to the computer while you are installing, it's a Windows thing. After the software completes it should prompt you to connect the printer and then it will want to do a test page. Good luck.

    Sorry for your frustration, try using a Windows XP driver instead, Vista drivers are known to have compatibility issues and the OS will convert the XP driver to work or use what it needs to complete loading.
