    I tried adding a generic printer and that did not work. If this is a driver problem, where do I download a usable from?

  • mjpepper Aug 20, 2008

    Yes, that the complete model.

  • mjpepper Aug 20, 2008

    Is your only answer to download a driver?

  • mjpepper Aug 20, 2008

    Was advised to get driver from Lexmark. Tried but printer not listed. How do I get my Z11 Lexmark printer to work under Vista OS?

It looks like this model isn't compatible with Vista. Here's the absolute latest driver for the Z11, if this driver does't work, then I'm afraid it's time for a new printer. This printer was, after all, designed for use with 98, it's had a good run, but it's obsolete.

Your printer is not compatible with Vista. You can purchase a new replacement that will be alot better for as little as 30$. The highest you can go is XP with that printer. If you have a moment to accept and rate this solution I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks,

These are the Vista drivers at Lexmark. I don:t see your printer listed. Are you sure that is the complete model number. Have alook:

    Like I said, I was unable to locate your drive so if you click on the box that allows automatic detection Lexmark can probably locate it for you. Some people are having success with using the Z11 colorfine driver for XP on Vista. I am still checking for you.

First line prints okay with Lexmark Z-11, but after that it's anybody's ball game.


What is the operating system of your computer? Disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot pc. Unplug and replug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Try to print again.
Note: The Lexmark Z11 printer only works on Windows XP 32-bit and Windows 2000 (http://bit.ly/m41dci)

We have windows vista and when we tried to install compac IJ300 it only goes up to windows 98 - can we install that using vista???


I found this solution on another website, I suggest you give it a try.

Everything works fine since I installed Vista except for my printer a Compaq IJ300 which is a Lexmark Z11 in disguise. I installed the driver for the regular Z11 through the "Add Printer " but had problems.

Went to Lexmark site - downloaded drivers for Z11 Series ColorFine- working perfectly. So far I have no other problems with vista.

Need driver CD for HP3740


Hi

The printer doesn't support windows 98. supported systems are:

» Microsoft Windows Vista
» Microsoft Windows Vista (64-bit)
» Microsoft Windows XP
» Microsoft Windows XP x64
» Microsoft Windows 2000
» Mac OS X
» Mac OS 9
» Linux

Drivers are available at this page below:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=401496&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&submit.y=3&submit.x=8&lang=en&cc=us

Note that there are no drivers for 98 and it won't be simple to get the printer to work with the 98.. I would recommend upgrading to 2000 or windows xp. if your computer is from 1998 it might be better to buy a new computer.

Todays printers don't work with 10 year old computers anymore.

linux would work on the computer for sure, and so would the printer but using linux is quite complex, you would need to get someone to install it for you and make it look as much like windows as possible, its a whole new system..

Let me know if you need anything else.



Thanks,
Ekse

HP OJ 5610 Drivers-? Can not install printer.


In this case, there's no mystery as to the cause of the problem. You will be unable to use this printer with your operating system because there are no existing print drivers that work with 64 bit Vista. Your printer will work with Windows 98, Windows 2000, and Windows XP, but not with Vista at all.

You have only two options...use a different HP printer that will work with Vista, or get a PC that has one of the supported operating systems on it and connect your current printer to that PC.

Sorry. I know this isn't the answer you were looking for, but that's the best I can do until the proper drivers become available.

Prints offset


So which OS are you using? 98, XP or Vista? Have you tried delteing the printer from your machine, downloading and then installing the latest driver from Epson?

You can download your driver here:

http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?lxkprod=Z11+Color+Jetprinter


If you have Vista:

Please note: At this time, Lexmark does not have a driver for this printer which is supported by Windows Vista.

However, people have reported success using the Windows 2000 driver on Vista.

Lexmark z11 Vista Compatible?


Looks like I've cracked it [Touches wooden desk]. Need a USB to IEEE 1284 36-pin Parallel Printer Cable, like the one I received today (ordered yesterday from www.cables2u.co.uk). First, connect it to Z11. Turn on Z11 and boot up Vista PC/laptop. (I run Vista Business on my laptop.) Connect cable to computer. Message appears "Installing device driver software". Click it for status. 'Found New Hardware' box appears. Click 'Locate and install driver software'. A message appears "Error loading LXADSUI.DLL. Specified module could not be found". Click 'OK'. Message appears saying driver software installed successfully. ["Yeah, right ..."] (Have faith, folks!) Now, click Start, then Control Panel and double-click Printers. Right click on Z11 and click on Set As Default Printer. Right click on Z11 again and click on Properties. Check on Ports tab that Port USB is ticked for Z11. On Cartridge Maintenance tab, check right cartridge is showing. If not, click 'Install/Change Cartridge' and follow instructions. Then 'Clean Print Nozzles' and 'Align Cartridges'. Check settings on the other tabs in Properties look OK and try printing a test page! It looks good to me!
