Question about Lexmark Prevail Pro705 Wireless All-In-One InkJet Printer

Open Question

The Lexmark Prevail Pro705 dashboard.exe will not open in Windows 7. I've downloaded the latest driver and installed it after uninstalling the old one. I've got it open once then it fails to open. Have you heard of a solution to this problem?

    Are you getting any particular error when installing the software? You may need to uninstall the existing driver first before installing the latest driver. Go to Start menu > Programs > Lexmark > Pro700 Series > Uninstall Lexmark Pro700 Series. Reboot pc when prompted. When pc's back on, download the driver from the Lexmark website. Make sure to use the correct driver compatible with your operating system (32-bit or 64-bit). Download, execute the file and follow the instructions in the software. Thanks.

SOURCE: taskbar fails to load after lexmark x7675 software install

Yes this is a problem that occurs with some new Lexmark printers. There is a patch that fixes it on the Lexmark website. You'll need to install the driver first then apply the patch.
There is an article on the Lexmark website explaining the issue ENUS32208
I think it has something to do with enabling "Sharing" the printer from Windows. You don't turn that on if you are connecting the printer wireless - multiple computers can still use the printer. You may not need the patch if you leave sharing turned off.

SOURCE: I need a driver for the Lexmark z816 that works

The manufacturer's web-page:


> Recently released printers include Microsoft Windows 7 drivers on the
> Software and Documentation CD provided in the box with the printer.

So, find an obliging computer-store that sells the printer, and pay them to make a copy of that CD.

The web-page also states:

> Many printer models have drivers included with the Windows
> Operating System or available through Windows Update

So, run "Windows Update", with the printer attached & powered-on, and look in the "Optional Hardware" category.

Or, choose "reinstall driver", and allow Windows to "access Internet to search for updated drivers".

No worries. Go to and on the right of the page you will see a button that says "Download Now" click that and run or save the setup file if you want to do it later.
