Question about Computers & Internet

I have two computers, one with XP professional and one with Vista. I have downloaded an update on the Vista program to use the same printer in both computers. I have a Lexmark Z1400. My computer with XP Professional is a Presario 900Z. It works perfectly with my wireless set up through a Dynex card and Netgear. the new computer is a toshiba laptop with Vista. I have downloaded a netgear connection. Is it related to setting up a network or is the there some other problem

Windows vista wont allow Kodak G600 printer to print pictures using easyshare program


Hi lomls3,
Are you using Kodak Easyshare ver8? If not, you may need to update the software in order for Vista to send the print jobs to the Kodak G600 printer.
Update the software to ver 8 first. Reboot the computer and retry printing.
Ver 8 can be downloaded here: http://www.opendrivers.com/driver/293165/kodak-digital-camera-kodak-easyshare-software-update-8.0-windows-2000-xp-vista-win7-free-download.html
Hope this helps.

I need to have my lexmark printer serisx1150 soft ware updated from windows xp to windows vista


Hello. Before installing the driver for Vista, you need to uninstall the XP driver first by going to Start Menu > All Programs/ Programs > Lexmark Series folder > Uninstall. Restart the computer. Also, check if your computer is running on 32-bit or 64-bit operating system by going to Start Menu > right click on Computer > Properties. You can download the Vista driver on this link: http://bit.ly/bmvu8D . Click on the Microsoft dropdown found below the page. Choose Windows Vista for 32-bit or Windows Vista x64 for 64-bit. Download and install the software. Hope this helps.

I need the software disk or a download site for installing a LexMark Z611 on a new computer.


This is what I did to find the driver necessary to install your printer to a new computer:

1: Visit Lexmark's Driver Download Site.
2: In the section that reads, "Download by Product" type in: Z611
3: Click the image/link of your printer (might take a moment to appear above the text-area).
4: Scroll down and find the appropriate driver that corresponds to your Operating System (If you have Windows XP, download the driver for XP. If you have Windows Vista, download the driver for Vista).

If the method above does not work for you, Microsoft has been getting better at locating drivers for you through Microsoft Update. If you're running Windows XP, go to the regular Windows Update page and look for links for Microsoft Update (By default, Microsoft Update is not used for Windows XP. You have to request it through Windows Update). After "signing" an agreement and installing a few more files Microsoft Update will look for updates to your system. Once the results are displayed look into the "Hardware" section. If you find anything in regards to a printer, chances are Microsoft found a compatible driver they know will work for your printer. Remember, before Microsoft Update can locate drivers for your printer it has to be connected to the computer and turned on.

If you're using Vista (W7 is just an enhanced version of Vista, yet Vista nonetheless), just go to your Start Menu and search for Microsoft Update -or- Windows Update. Afterward check for new updates and do the same as mentioned above. Look into the hardware section to see if there are any entries for a printer. If there are, select the update and install it. Remember, before Windows / Microsoft Update can find drivers for your printer it needs to be connected to the computer and turned on.

Personally I would use the drivers from Lexmark, yet I figured I would give you two choices. Let us know how things turn out.

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.
http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi

If you can't follow that link, go to www.lexmark.com. 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.

Did you make sure that you installed the latest driver from HP's web site for Vista? Some systems will grab the wrong driver if you let it do an automatic install.
