This model does not have a Vista driver listed on the Lexmark Website. Other than attempting to use a generic driver or driver for another model I don't know what other options you have.

The disc you have is not compatible with Vista - They never considered that users would end up having this many issues with their wonderful software. You need to download the driver from their website for your model this is the currect updated version. Follow this link:

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.

Cannot communicate with printer


The original Cd would likely not contain the proper "Vista" Driver if that's what you are using.
Search for the proper driver here if you need to:

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.

COMPATABILITY


Unfortunately Lexmark X73 is not Vista compatible, and Lexmark does not seem intentioned in releasing Vista drivers.

How do I get Lexmark X73 to work with my Windows Vista?


I read the Lexmark guide. It says that to began printing, you must remove a sticker and a transparent tape from the bottom of the ink cartridges. My question is " how do I remove the cartridges to check to see if the cartridges are correct"?
