I use z611, and i want to install in my new computer which is window 7 system. and i found the computer doesnot communication with printer. also i want to the company website, they havenot offer driver...

From the Microsoft compatibility site, you should be able to get this printer to work with the drivers built into the Win7 OS (Lexmark z611). If you get a communication failure, try a new USB cable and try a different port. Check if a known working device works.

If you are using a USB hub or print server, try a direct connection.

I hope this helps.

I have a Lexmark 4690 printer which was scanning and sending e-mails for a long time and suddenly quit. It stated that the OCR was not installed so today I got out the disc and reinstalled it but just as...

Since the problem occur just today, and since you tried re-installing the driver but got the same problem, the thing that I could think of is for you to try performing system restore in your computer.

Restore your computer to the day you've last seen the Lexmark 4690 worked correctly.

Good luck!

Install lexmark Z45, don't have set up disk...

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!

Couldn't install lexmark 8300 printer software on my window vista driver computer

Follow this link to the official Lexmark website and download the driver.

If you can't follow that link, go to On the top menu, there is a link called "Drivers and Downloads". Click it and select your series, then your OS system, and there you go.

The drivers for Vista are finally updated.

I had the same problem for about a year... now it works fine.

Lexmark X1185 won't scan.

I have the same issues with a Lexmark printer, Lexmark printers are not very user friendly with Vista. What I did is create a dual boot with XP and installed the software for the printer there. If interested in that follow these instructions or contact lexmark support.
