How to install a lexmark printer without a cd?

I have a Lexmark laser printer at home which I bought over an year and a half ago. I have been using it for that long and without any major malfunction hiccup. Recently I had to update my computer from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and it seems during the process it wiped out the settings saved for my printer. Now the problem is I do not have the CD which I used to install it the first time. Is there a way to fix this? Can i install my Lexmark printer without a CD?
