Question about Lexmark Z816 InkJet Printer

Cannot print using Lexmark Z816

Hi, I've used my printer Z816 with Windows Xp and worked fine. After I bought a new computer with Windows Vista, it didn't work anymore. I've emailed lexmark and they've provided a site where I've downloaded the driver (http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:446:0:0&emeaframe=&fileID=11467&searchLang=en&searchLang=en&os_group=Windows%20Vista) for Windows Vista. But the printer doesn't print. I see it in the printers list but cannot print even a test page. I've tried restarting the PC, plugging unplugging printer cables, but didn't help. Thanks, Monica

    If you are trying to get an answer for your problems, do not expect it to come from this site. After waiting and waiting and waiting for a response, I contacted the manufacturer directly (Lexmark) and now I can use my printer.

I need a driver for the Lexmark z816 that works


The manufacturer's web-page:

http://support.lexmark.com/index?page=content&userlocale=EN_US&id=HOT33&locale=en&productCode=LEXMARK_Z816&segment=DOWNLOAD&actp=HOTTIPS

states:

> 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".

I bought a new computer with Windows Vista. I have a Lexmark x73 printer that was used with my old computer with Windows XP. I bought a USB port and my printer still doesn't work. I need help with this.


Not finding a Vista driver to be available from Lexmark x73. They only show the XP driver. You can get this driver free here: http://download.cnet.com/Lexmark-X73/3000-2116_4-22576.html?tag=mncol

One, try installing printer without the XP driver. Lexmark may have provided a quailifying driver with Vista hardware setup wizard. If it does not work or wizard cannot locate a driver, try the XP driver.

Beyond this, you may have to talk to tech support at Lexmark or repost here for another expert.

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

You need to stop using Vista as Microsoft has not supported it since 2014. OK to use Vista for a while after 2014 because Windows Update still gave security updates for other Windows products (Word, Works, etc.). But now, Windows Update for Vista will not work anymore for anything. At least switch to Windows 7 as Microsoft will probably support it until 2020.
