Hi, Cynthia.

Unfortunately, there are no Vista drivers for the Lexmark x73, so you will not be able to use this printer with Vista.

That's why it doesn't work.

Hope this helps.

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.

    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. 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.

    Need lexmark x73 power cord


    here on ebay you can find cheap priced cords for your make and model.

    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"

    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 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...


    Hi-

    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

    Unable to print


    With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into the USB port until told to do so.

    To fix a fouled install :
    (1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs
    (2) Shutdown the computer
    (3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port
    (4) Restart the computer
    (5) Run the Driver Installation software
    (6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer
    (7) When the sofware asks for the printer connect it and continue
