Lexmark z11 Vista Compatible?

Related to the earlier question about the cable: we got my dad a new hp laptop for christmas, so i got a parallel port/usb adaptor today, to try to hook up his lexmark z11 printer. but when i try to install the software, it doesn't look like it's vista compatible. lexmark's site doesn't even reference the z11 printer, so it's not listed as one of their vista compatible legacy products. any suggestions? thx!

Looks like I've cracked it [Touches wooden desk]. Need a USB to IEEE 1284 36-pin Parallel Printer Cable, like the one I received today (ordered yesterday from www.cables2u.co.uk). First, connect it to Z11. Turn on Z11 and boot up Vista PC/laptop. (I run Vista Business on my laptop.) Connect cable to computer. Message appears "Installing device driver software". Click it for status. 'Found New Hardware' box appears. Click 'Locate and install driver software'. A message appears "Error loading LXADSUI.DLL. Specified module could not be found". Click 'OK'. Message appears saying driver software installed successfully. ["Yeah, right ..."] (Have faith, folks!) Now, click Start, then Control Panel and double-click Printers. Right click on Z11 and click on Set As Default Printer. Right click on Z11 again and click on Properties. Check on Ports tab that Port USB is ticked for Z11. On Cartridge Maintenance tab, check right cartridge is showing. If not, click 'Install/Change Cartridge' and follow instructions. Then 'Clean Print Nozzles' and 'Align Cartridges'. Check settings on the other tabs in Properties look OK and try printing a test page! It looks good to me!

A lot of people have had success using drivers for windows 2000 with older Lexmarks pn PC's running Vista. It's worth a shot.

I have a zalman case model z11 plus/z11 hf1/z11 was wondering is this case compatible with water cooling fan as I heard its good as am building a gaming pc.


If you cant put a water cooler in a massive zalman case like you have, you had better learn how to. The basic sets go together like Christmas lights.

We have windows vista and when we tried to install compac IJ300 it only goes up to windows 98 - can we install that using vista???


I found this solution on another website, I suggest you give it a try.

Everything works fine since I installed Vista except for my printer a Compaq IJ300 which is a Lexmark Z11 in disguise. I installed the driver for the regular Z11 through the "Add Printer " but had problems.

Went to Lexmark site - downloaded drivers for Z11 Series ColorFine- working perfectly. So far I have no other problems with vista.

You mentioned parallel usb. The HP4L only has parallel. Make sure you specify LPT1 as the port you want. Try reinstalling the driver. It should be in the list of drivers.

Reinstall printer


You can download your driver here:

If you have Vista:

Please note: At this time, Lexmark does not have a driver for this printer which is supported by Windows Vista.

However, people have reported success using the Windows 2000 driver on Vista.

I have a Lexmark Z11 that sat unopened in the box for several years until it was given to me as an emergency printer. The black ink cartridge had been pilfered by the original owner ( he got several of the se printers on clearance for $15 each). I bought a remanufactures high capacity cartridge. It workef fine for the three days of printing I did last week (about 25-30 pages of resumes and reference letters). When I went to use it a week later, it goes through the motions of printing but no ink is put on the page. I ran the clean cartridge several times but still no ink. I tried the new still-in-the-box color cartridge and did get color on the page in the alignment trial, but it was faded and full of white lines. I figured the cartridge was just old. It could be the ink leaked out of the remanufactured cartridge, but when I gently blew on the air hole I got a small splat of ink. (I used to be a sales rep for Canon printers a dozen years ago and we were told to do that to see if the cartridge still had ink.) I deleted and reinstalled the printer, unplugged and replugged cable and power cord twice. The printer receives the command and goes through the motion of printing, but as I said, no ink is put on the page. I have come to the conclusion the perhaps the remanufactured cartridge is at fault and I should take it back for an exchange, Can I get your take on it - is it the cartridge or the printer? Thanks! -Kathleen Brockway
