    I'm using windows basic home edition vista with McAfee and trying to get my
    Lexmark Z640 to communicate with the pc. (32 bit system)
    After many failed attempts I have finally managed to successfully install
    driver for printer from Lexmark website but still recieve error message
    "printer unable to communicate with computer" when I try to print a document.

    I have changed usb cables and checked power cable but no joy!! Would I be
    better off cutting my losses and buying another printer? Problem there is,
    this Lexmark printer stated it was vista compatible and obviously isnt! Maybe
    I'd be better off sourcing the old xp os!!
