Installing My lexmark x73 will not print, so I'm trying to reinstall it. was told that I had to uninstall first, so I did, now while trying to install from my discs, the computer shuts down, restarts and still does not have the printer installed. This continually happens - I have tried reinstalling it probably 5 times today. HELP!!!

I suggest you use the drivers you'll find here, instead of the original cd(which may be completely outdated)

When I try to print from any application - nothing happens - the printer window opens but it does not pick up which file is to be printed.


You need to completely uninstall the printer driver and before uninstall it make sure that printer is not connected with computer. once when uninstalltion get finish restart the computer.

now download the latest driver from lexmark website, you can search it with printer model number and install the printer.

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;

Good luck Bobby!

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

Cannot print unless I turn off computer and then reboot.


I'm not a big fan of Lexmark in general in part due to their software and drivers. For me this type of behavior from their printers/software became common about a year ago, the fix being to use the more generic Windows supplied printer drivers. I would suggest that you uninstall all software the printer installed and remove all of the printers print queue(s)including any associated with the fax function. Unplug the printer USB cable from the computer, reboot your PC and reinstall the printer from scratch using your original installatin CD.
