if you leave your cd drive and floppy empty when you click install new hardware,windows will go online to find the drivers to suit your device

I suggest that you contact perplexed8 and get him to email you the drivers that he has to drive his Lexmark Z708. Youcould then check which driver is installed on your PC and if different change it to the new one. This has worked for me in the past. I copied the new driver to a floppy and installed it from that. Good luck, I have felt your frustration many times.
