Re: not compatible

Either remove Vista from your P.C. and install an OS that is compatible with your device, or first remove Vista, have the earlier OS installed on a separate partition, then reinstall Vista, (you must have the Vista disc to do this), on the second partition in order to retain both and have the ability to select either OS on rebooting the P.C.

Re: 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.

Lexmark does not have Windows 7 drivers for the X73, the newest ones are for XP:

You can try:

If the manufacturers website does not have Windows 7 drivers, try using Windows Update to install printer drivers:

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.

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:

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.

Just purchased a hp pavilion and tried to install my lexmark x73 and it wasn't compatible. Any solutions to this problem.

Install the driver/s from this link/site and then install your Lexmark X73. This is for windows/HP/Lexmark....I do believe it will be compatible.

Good luck.

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.
(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;

Good luck Bobby!

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

New vista windows will not install X73 Lexmark printer. System blocks NT 4.0 drivers. What to do?

Just find out the latest software for your printer from the official website of Lexmark.

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.
