    I'm trying to install my printer (Lexmark Z603 Inkjet, which is plug and play) on my computer. Although I dont have the installation CD, I have downloaded the driver from Lexmark and it installed fine. However, whenever I try to print something, I get the message: Communication not Available. The printer cannot communicate with the computer.

    I have used this printer before, but only on Windows XP on a different computer. This is the first time I'm installing a printer onto Vista (and on this computer). Also for some reason, the printer light keeps flashing, which never happened previously

    Earlier, while trying to install it, I got the error message: Remote Procedure Call failed. However, I think I am past that problem now.

    I would appreciate it if you could help me with this problem
