My Lexmark Z700-P700 printer worked fine in Vista, but last night after upgrading to 7, there is no driver available. I've read where others have run the installer for their Vista drivers in compatibility mode with success.

My problem is that I can't find a driver. When I go to Lexmark, their site knows my OS is Windows 7 and won't let me download it. I've Googled around, but obviously don't know my driver resources very well. Can anyone get me pointed in the right direction?

Thanks,
Rusty

Have you Tried this Vista Driver, cjr Z 700-P700 EN.exe from Lexmark USA =

http://support.lexmark.com/ (sorry the complete url for this specific Driver page would not Paste over, - to Long)

I would suggest you uninstall your present Driver, and unplug the USB lead from your Printer Before Installing the above Lexmark Z700-P700 Vista Driver

Hope this works for you, Good Luck.

Thanks for the replies. I got the cjr Z 700-P700 EN.exe from Lexmark USA. I had actually been to that page and didn't recognize my driver earlier. I set the installer to Vista SP2 mode and it works fine.
