Lexmark Z645 with Vista works... by cameo3 - 12/20/07 10:32 AM
In reply to: Having the same problem without resolution by avirjb I had the same problem with the Lexmark Z645 and Vista. After a lot of effort I gave up and emailed Lexmark.

Their response was surprisingly helpful:

First download and run "CleanupUtility.exe" from:

Then unplug the printer's USB cable and restart your PC.

Then download and run the printer's drivers/install program for Vista, from:

Only plug the USB cable back in when the drivers/install program tells you to.

After install, I think it asks for another reboot.
Then all should work fine.(This article is an excerpt from this
page ) read the articles very informative

Your install CD may not have the correct driver for VISTA. This is a known issue, and Lexmark has an update for you. There is an updated driver available from the Lexmark website.

It is cjr640EN.exe Version

Try this link:

Hope that this helps!

If the link won't work, their website is fairly easy to find the driver that you need!

Just run the CD and an installation wizard should pop up. Just follow the on screen instructions.

Intalling a Lexmark Z645 to my toshiba laptop without a disk

If this is a newer printer that can use a USB cable, then you want to boot up the laptop, If you arte running XP or Vista, make sure you have admin rights. Install software with the printer disconnected from computer. Once install is either completed or asks for printer connection, power on printer, wait a few moments, then attach the USB cable top a poert on laptop. Install should continue, and you should be good to go.

Printer and computer arent' communicating

no, a missing black cartridge is not the problem. If other USB devices (do you have a usb mouse or camera) work on your HP, you must try the printer on another PC to test the printer is functional. Many outlet stores like Best Buy will allow you to bring in your printer to test it communicating.
