Need compatible driver

I have a Lexmark Z25 Ink jet printer that I had purchased to use with Windows problems there, BUT when we bought our newest computer with Windows Vista, the Lexmark Z25 is no longer compatible. Is there an updated driver for the Z2500 series that can be downloaded to correct the incompatibility issues with Windows Vista? And if so, where can I find this driver? I love this printer, and it has always performed well, and I don't have the funds to "run out" and buy ANOTHER printer...... :(.

Thank you in advance for your help and suggestions.

Lexmark does not have Vista drivers for that printer.

I saw something here about someone making a driver for that machine might work, can't get to the site from work:

I lost my lexmark z25 cd and i now have window 7 on my pc


The lexmark z25 printer does not require any drivers to run on windows 7, they are available automatically as part of the operating system.

All you need to do is plug it in and it will install the required software!

I'm having issues getting the lexmark z25 drivers for windows 7

There is no driver for windows 7, in fact, they don't even have a vista driver for this printer.

If you absolutely must use this printer under windows 7, you could use VirtualBox (, to create a virtual computer, install XP in the virtual computer, then redirect the usb or lpt port to the virtual computer. Then you'd have to save the document to a shared folder, open the document in the virtual XP, and print. Even sharing the printer over the virtual network (or off a real xp machine and real network) won't work, since win7 doesn't know how to 'speak' Z25 'language'.

Frankly, it's a LOT easier, and really, when you consider your time, cheaper to buy a new printer that has a windows 7 driver.

Printer will not turn on; Have contacted Lexmark tech support; No help

All you need to do is update your printer drivers, as this printer was designed before vista came about, and possibly will not run on windows xp service pack 2 either. Go to lexmarks site and under drivers, look for your printer type. Download newest driver for it, and store a copy of it on a cd in case you lose it off computer or somthing happens to it to save having to download it again.
