Hey there,
It's frustrating I know!
It doesn't work in Vista. It is only supported by Windows up to XP. I now have another PC running XP just so I can use my printer!

Here's the XP driver anyway:

Right-clicking on the driver application and clicking Properties to Enable XP Compatibility in the Compatibility tab doesn't work either, it just doesn't have support beyond XP, so you'll have to do what I did and load up XP on another machine if you want to use you printer!

Wish I had better news for you, mate!
Good Luck

    SOURCE: 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. . 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.

    New laptop with windows 7 won't print to Lexmark x7350. says to enable bidirectional support - but that option is grayed out.

    Make sure to use the correct printer driver version for your operating system. You may need to uninstall your existing printer driver first before downloading the new driver. Go to Start menu > Programs > Lexmark 7300 Series > Tools > Uninstall. After the uninstall process, reboot pc when prompted.
    When your computer turns on, go to Start menu > right-click on Computer > Properties. Check the System Type. Note: Use Vista driver in Windows 7.
    Use the links below to download and install the printer driver: - Lexmark X7350 Driver for Vista/Win7 32-bit - Lexmark X7350 Driver for Vista/Win7 64-bit
    Follow the instructions on your computer screen.

    Why doesn't 3150 printer work with vista? I need a driver?

    According to your manual (below-Operating Systems) they just don't make Vista driver for it. So it is a compatibility issue, sorry we can not help.

    Printer won't print

    Although Lexmark has not released a Windows Vista driver for the Lexmark X75 printer, there is a good chance that Vista will support your printer without the need for installing a driver (i.e. Windows Vista probably comes with a driver for your printer already built into the operating system). Windows Vista comes with support for 2.2 million devices and since your printer is not a new model, it is likely to be supported. Just try connecting it to a computer that is running Windows Vista and see if it is detected and installed for you.

    We do have the drivers for Windows 2000 and Windows XP available for download from our driver database:

    Lexmark 1290 on Vista Printing Blank Pages

    Fond this on the Lexmark Website. Hope it helps.

    Attention Windows Vista Users
    If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.

    Follow these steps to resolve:
    · 1) Disconnect your USB cable from your printer.
    · 2) Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC.
    · 3) Download the correct Vista driver for your model.
    · 4) While leaving the USB unconnected, Install the driver on your PC.

    Important - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected.

    I have a lexmark x125 printer and I bought a new computer with vista home premium operating system and can not get vista to run the printer. What kind of driver do i have to use to get vista to run this...


    There's no available downloadable driver for vista, try going to add printer, select the usb port then select manufacturer name and scroll down on the x125 model if available as resident driver, if none. call lexmark for updates for vista.

    Hope this helps
