Hello thebdd

Unless it is a high end special purpose printer for which you must purchase a license to run, registration or restrictions on the computer or number of computers it can be installed on are not used.

In these cases, you can install the printer on as many computers as you like. 99% of the time, the "drivers" for the printer can be downloaded from the manufacturer's web site. You don't need the disk that came w/ the printer.

Please, tell us the following and we'll find your printer's drivers and installation instructions for you if you like.

(01) Manufacturer and model number of the printer.
(02) Manufacturer and model number of the computer you wish to connect the printer to.
(03) What operating system is installed on the computer you wish to connect the printer to. (e.g. Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Mac OSX, etc.)

Please, post back here w/ the answers to these questions, and we'll find what you need for you.

Thank you

Access the manufacturer's web-site: http://support.lexmark.com
and enter 'Z735' and do the search for device-drivers.
Select the device-driver for your version of Windows.

My Kodax easyshare 5100 printer needs to be installed into my new hp TouchSmart300PC. My old E machine died and I have misplaced the disk to installation Kodak. Would you please help me add it to my new...


Going to the Kodak website and download the updated drivers and software for your operating system would be your best bet. Another option would be to connect, at least temporarily, your old hard drive to the new computer and get the drivers off of it but this will not work if you had XP on the old machine and have Win Vista or Win 7 on the new machine.

Hi, Had my printer on old computer, when I went to put in on new computer the alarm light comes on and nothing else works.


Before connecting the printer to the new computer you will need to install the drivers using the printer disk.

If the printer disk is too old, or if you have misplaced the disk you will need to go to the printer manufacturer website, find support page, enter printer model, and download updated driver.

Connect printer only after installing driver.

If the printer is too old, it may not be compatible with Vista or newer operative systems.

Printer (922) won't install on new laptop


If your laptop is running Vista and your old desktop was running XP and the disk you got with your printer had drivers that worked with XP and Vista is not listed on them, it would be a case of incompatibility. You would need to go to the Dell website to download updated drivers for Vista if they are not of the standard Vista driver package. (The driver model changed between XP and Vista making XP drivers incompatible with Vista.)
