Need lexmark x73 power cord


here on ebay you can find cheap priced cords for your make and model.
http://popular.ebay.com/computers-networking/lexmark-x73/lexmark-x73-printer.htm

if it is drivers you need for windows 7
Lexmark does not have Windows 7 drivers for the X73, the newest ones are for XP:
http://support.lexmark.com/index?locale=EN&page=product&userlocale=EN_US&productCode=LEXMARK_X73&focusedTab=DOWNLOADS#1

Lexmark does not include it as being compatible with Windows 7:
http://support.lexmark.com/index?page=content&id=OS3



You can try:

If the manufacturers website does not have Windows 7 drivers, try using Windows Update to install printer drivers:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Find-and-install-printer-drivers


Try the Printer Troubleshooter
1. Click the Start button, then click Control Panel
2. In the search box, type troubleshooter
3. Then click Troubleshooting
4. Under Hardware and Sound, click "Use a printer"

Lexmark X73 printer printer driver for Windows


Hello, I believe the printer works
with Windows XP and Windows 2000
only but there is no available
driver for Windows Vista. I
visited the Lexmark website to
verify it. Just click on this link if you want to check it out for yourself. http://bit.ly/cQqZbz . Click on the dropdown for Microsoft at the bottom of the page. You'll only see drivers for Windows XP and Windows 2000 only. I hope that would explain why it won't work with your Vista.

I bought a new computer with Windows Vista. I have a Lexmark x73 printer that was used with my old computer with Windows XP. I bought a USB port and my printer still doesn't work. I need help with this.


Not finding a Vista driver to be available from Lexmark x73. They only show the XP driver. You can get this driver free here: http://download.cnet.com/Lexmark-X73/3000-2116_4-22576.html?tag=mncol

One, try installing printer without the XP driver. Lexmark may have provided a quailifying driver with Vista hardware setup wizard. If it does not work or wizard cannot locate a driver, try the XP driver.

Beyond this, you may have to talk to tech support at Lexmark or repost here for another expert.

Properties Settings for my Lexmark X73 are missing


Hi Bobby,
Good idea! Uninstall the Lexmark software. (Restart windows).
Before you reinstall the driver software download this free cleaning software & run it.
http://www.pctuneuptips.com/recommends/clean/?gclid=CL2RiIrTmpICFSFMGgodODIPzg
(Restart windows again when it has finished cleaning).
Rather than using your CD's go to the link & download the driver software. I'm not sure if your CD is the same (Date wise) or if the web site's software is the latest. Re-install the driver software.
While at the Lexmark link above, scroll down to the drivers section.
You'll see that Lexmark does not support Vista. From forum post others with the same printer post it will not function with Vista.
Here is a forum site about Vista & the X73;
http://www.vistax64.com/vista-hardware-devices/172631-lexmark-x73-printer-wont-work-vista.html

Good luck Bobby!

I have a lexmark x73 i'been instaling so manytimes on order to make the scaner to work but nothing I would apreciatte if you can give me some tips or help thanks


Hi,
The all in one solution software you used in XP doesn't work fully with Vista.

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie Lexmark X73) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.

I can't get my printer to work at all.


here is the lexmark printer x73 driver 1.0.17.2

http://printers.free-driver-download.com/Lexmark/12559/Lexmark-Printer-X73-Driver-1.0.17.2-WinXP.html

first go to control panel > system > device manager and find the printer device. double click it then uninstall whatever device is being used. then run the new driver in the download.
you can download and unpack the downloaded file, and then go back to the control panel and let the device manager 'find' the driver, or you can install it manually. (the downloaded driver may come in an .exe form which should install from there)

good luck

I have a new computer, i need my lexmark x73 printer connected to it


Unfortunately, lexmark discontinued to produce a driver for the x73 for win vista...

You can try to check if there is a resident driver installed within your operating system, if there's none you can try the windows updage option to check if microsoft created a resident driver for your printer...

Here are the steps
1. go to start then go to control panel
2. go to printers and other hardware
3. on the left side of the printers window, click on add a printer
4. press the next button until you get to a window which is asking you to select your manufacturer and model..
5. select lexmark as your manufacturer and check if the x73 is one of your choice under the model list...
6. if not, click on the windows update button.. it will try to find all compatible drivers for your product from microsoft.

Not compatible


I to have a X73 and love it .............but for the price of new ink (I have seen them for $39.99 to $49.99) you can get a new lexmark all in one! After spending two days trying all different drivers I think that is what I will be doing.
