    • Step 1

      Connect the power cable from the printer to an electrical receptacle.
    • Step 2

      Connect the USB cable from the printer to the computer.


    • Step 3

      See if the operating system picks up the connection to the printer. A pop-up should appear, or an icon will display, typically in the lower right corner of your tool bar. If the system has picked up the connection, the drivers have installed automatically, and you are ready to print. If the computer did not pick up the printer, then move to step 4.
    • Step 4

      Insert the Lexmark CD into your computer. Follow the prompts to install the software and any drivers needed to operate your Lexmark Z645. If your operating system is too new for the printer to work with your current drivers, the software will direct you how to get the correct drivers for your operating system.
