Here are the links to the Lexmark website to download the drivers. Just click on the links:
- Driver for Microsoft Windows XP (For Windows XP only)
- Custom Driver for Microsoft Windows 2000 (For Windows 2000 only)
- Lexmark X83 Driver for Mac OS X, Mac OS X 10.x, Mac OS X 10.2.8, and Mac OS X 10.3.x. (For Macintosh)
Unfortunately, there are no drivers for Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Macintosh 10.4, 10.5 and 10.6.

Hi, I have a lexmark all in one printer x83. I also have a toshiba l300 series laptop. I want to know if my laptop is compatible to hooked up to my printer.

How does the printer connect to the PC, via USB?

If it is a USB connected printer then physically the printer will connect.

However, the real question is whether or not the X83 has a driver for the operating system that is on your laptop. Since you did not tell us the OS, I'm dead in the water until you do.

Can not install on windows vista basic

I am not sure of your question. Lexmark model x83 has drivers only for Win Xp and  Win 2,000.    Unless they. Lexmark elect to have their software people write or develop a driver for Win VISTA for this model printer ,no one else ever will. Maybe call or write to them.  Their is a 20% off printer upgrade offer on a VISTA compatable printer.
 Your other option is to downgrade to WIndows Xp. I personally see no advantages to  VISTA , at least for me. Xp is much faster.

My windows vista Business cannot install my Lexmark X83 All-in-one printer!

Lexmark is not officially making any driver for the X83 that will work with Vista because its a 32 bit printer and Vista is 64 bit. Sounds like some BS to me. So, I have the same problem, a perfectly working printer and an incompatible OS. My Mom was using an old mac and had an X83 printer which she loves. She now has a new PC running Vista. Only now, I have the problem of how to get the X83 to work with Vista. Supposedly the lexmark 5200 drivers will work. My suggestion is to power off and unplug the USB cable to the X83, and manually remove any driver(s) related to it that may have been installed using the system control panel device manager. Then attempt to install the xp driver for X83 per the post below. I'm going to then plug in the USB cable and power up the printer and see if it works (it probably won't) but I'm hoping it'll then cue itself looking for the 5200 series drivers which supposedly do work according to one post on MS forum, I quote:

"After reading all these posts I was both discouraged, but more determined than ever to get my X83 to run on Vista. I have to say the determination payed off! That's right...I just both scanned and printed 7 pages on my X83 running on Vista!!!! Here's what I did. I first installed the XP driver for X83 hoping I could dumb my laptop down to make it run on an XP luck there, but when I did that, my laptop recognized the X83 as a Lexmark 5200 series which is also an all in one. I thought, well, if that's what it wants, that's what I will give it. If you go to the Lexmark website and look under downloads/drivers, there is a list that shows all compatible OS. The 5200 series is listed here with a Vista compatible driver. Once I downloaded it and went through the installation worked LIKE A DREAM!!!! I hope this helps all of you as I also understood and felt your frustrations! Good luck!!!"

X83 printer

If you bought a new PC did it come with Vista? When you downloaded the driver did you make sure it matched you OS. You can try again by adding new printer so you will have two of the same drivers in your printer file. Normally all you need to print is the printer driver.
