    Just got a refurbished Gateway w Vista and replied to "system found new hardware" window (Lexmark z715 printer) but didn't get the disk in tray quick enough, so it timed out. What do I do now?

What he said above. also, Lexmark printers arent typically a good brand when it comes to home printers, i would suggest that you get a HP next time. they last longer. I work on both kinds for a living.

Always install the software first before physically connecting a new device as windows tries to install its own drivers automatically. If your having problems, you can un-install it and then re-install. Also, if you unplug it and use your computer and the plug it back in later, windows will usually say " device found" followed by its name. this is normal.

Disconnect the printer and re-install the driver. If you plug the printer in and then try to install the printer, Vista will install it's own driver.

The download manager will tell you when it's ok to plug in the printer.

You will get messages that say the software is not window approved but click to install anyway. Most new hardware will give you this instruction on a single sheet, added to the package as an after thought.

How do I install my P 700 printer into my vista system

You may need to download the Vista driver for your Lexmark printer... oh by the way its a lexmark printer right?

Note: Z700/P700 series according to the printer's website are the same maybe that's why your having trouble searching for it because it will only show as z700 series driver but when you check the actual filename it states that its cjrZ700-P700EN.exe

Hope this help you solve your printer problem.

Printing e mail

When you click on the Print button located in File, a dialog will open asking to you to choose your printer. Make sure to select your printer (Lexmark E238) in the printer name field.

Let me know if it works.
