Hi there, i dont know if this is of any relevence however, i have just spent the whole afternoon trying to install my new printer, every time i installed my disk a little icon popped up saying usb didnt recognise the device, despite endless frustration i did it another way, If your printer is a usb connection then before inserting the disk connect the printer to the computer and switch on, this then brings up the wizzard which should help you install, if this doesnt work...trust me it took me ages, try different usb ports, i finally found one that picked up the printer, after it detected the device i was then able to continue with instalation via the disk and wohoo many hours later i have a printer, unfortunatley i have now run out of paper doh!!! i hope this helps someone :-)

2.Once you have the driver,then connect the printer with the computer & see that both USB & Power cables are connected.
3.Once the Windows detects the printer,then point to the driver, to get it installed.
4.If this doesnt work then do it manually via,"Start->Printers & Faxes->Add Printer"

Cd missing


if i understand you ,you need the printer driver for your printer.go to the website of the maker of your printer,when you are at the home page look in "downloads", and search for the driver for your printer,it may also be in "support" .

or go to www.driverguide.com register free then search for it on that site,the site will also give the web address for the maker of your printer.
good luck

I am trying to print from my Lexmark X73. I have reinstalled the software, but it's not installing the printer portion. It is only installing the scanner. Why is it doing that, and can I fix it?


run this clean uninstall utility

http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:94:0:0&emeaframe=&fileID=1236&searchLang=en&os_group=WinXP

download the drivers from lexmark

http://www.downloaddelivery.com/downloads/cpd/CJXP73LE.exe

plug in your printer and install the drivers.

if this does not work then extract the driver file you downloaded "CJXP73LE.exe", go to start ->settings->printer and faxes....install a new printer (make sure local printer and auto-detect are checked)...follow it through and your printer should install. if at any time it asks for drivers or you want to manually point to the drivers then browse to the location where you extracted the "CJXP73LE.exe" file. you can download a program like "winrar" (type it in google) to extract it.

Have a new PC with Vista will not accept last years model of lexmark mod X1185 it did work fine with old PC on windows 98 Pauline


Hello, you might want to try going to lexmark's drivers website for Windows Vista drivers for your printer. This is mostly likely the reason your printer will not work under Vista at this time. Hope this helps!
