    how do i get the vista download....I can non find it

    Hello

    I have the same problem and I did as you suggestet (installed driver for an Z42 and added it on the usb port). so now the printer is "printing" but without ink. next I changed the cartridges, but it won´t print neither in black nor in colour. I even tried to clean the printer inside but honestly I even can´t see where the ink is supposed to come out of the cartdriges....

    how comes a solution is working with your printer / laptop but not with mine? I hope somebody can help. thanks!

Just wanted to say this worked great for me and saved me from having to purchase a new printer. Thank you VERY much. The computer was in by budget, but not a new printer. Blessings!

Lexmark states they do not support the Z45 for Vista but after hours no days of messing around I was finally able to get my Z45 to work with the Lexmark Z42 driver that was supplied with Vista. Plug the Z45 in, go to add printer, select Lexmark and Z42 Colorjet on the USB port and you should be using printing in no time.

    Excellent. I've also spent hours trying to fix the printer for vista then I saw your post and your Z42 solution worked first time. Thanks

  • wizzlewolf Apr 23, 2011

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. I just bought an OLD Lexmark Z45. It is in almost perfect condition, but I had the driver problem too. Your solution (Z42 / USB) worked PERFECTLY!!!! Thank you so much!! :-)

Lexmark z45 not working with windows xp. i installed a lexmark z45 on my laptop that has windows xp and it will not print


Check the printer status:

1 Click Start > Control Panel > Printers and Other Hardware > Printers and Faxes.
2 From the Printers folder, double-click the Lexmark Z45 printer icon.
3 From the Printer menu, make sure:
– Default Printer is selected.
– Pause Printing is not selected.

Check the printer port:

1 Click Start > Control Panel > Printers and Other Hardware > Printers and Faxes.
2 Click the Ports tab.
3 From the list of ports, select the USB printer port. If the USB port is not listed, uninstall and then reinstall the printer software.
4 Click Apply.
5 Click OK.

Make sure you have not installed multiple copies of the printer software:

Windows XP: From the Start menu, click Control Panel Printers and Other Hardware > Printers and Faxes.
In the Printers folder, make sure there is only one Lexmark Z45 printer icon. If you have installed multiple copies of the printer software, uninstall each copy. Then restart the computer and reinstall the printer software.
If the printer port is incorrect or you have installed multiple copies of the printer software, uninstall and then reinstall the printer software:

1 From the Start menu, click Programs or All Programs Lexmark Z45 Uninstall.
2 Follow the instructions on your screen to uninstall the printer software.
3 Restart your computer.
4 Reinstall the printer software

This link takes you to Lexmark’s front page,
Here you must select your -> Zone -> Country -> Language
Then in “Search by model” write “your model”
Then select your operating system,
“Download now”
Sorry about the inconvenience, but that’s the way Lexmark have arranged there web page.
