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.

http://popular.ebay.com/computers-networking/lexmark-x73/lexmark-x73-printer.htm

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:

Lexmark does not include it as being compatible with Windows 7:

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"

Lexmark X73 Printing Problem


When you say that your all-in-one system will copy, but will not print from the computer, this tells me that there could be a connection problem between the printer and the computer. This is more then likely a driver problem. you will need to go to lexmark and download the latest drivers for your operating system.
But this could also be a broken or loose cable.

good day,
my answer is no..unless if your Lexmark x73 has its via blue tooth, it is very possible that you can transmit data to your computer...

What kind plug, cable,(etc) was a gift. without hook-up, can u help me?tks


This is a USB printer and takes a standard A/B USB cable (you don't need a special mini-plug). It is generally recommended that you directly connect to the computer with a cable that is 6' or less long.If you need the power cord, you will need to look closely at the specs. This printer uses a transformer that accepts a special power cord and then connects to the printer. A setup guide is available here: http://www.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/x73/ensetup.pdf . The most important thing is that you need to install the software before you attach the USB cable to the computer (I'm having timeout issues so I can't seem to get the exact page but www.lexmark.com is the place to start if the used printer didn't come with a CD). The user's guide is available at http://www.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/x73/engui.pdf .

I hope this helps.

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: 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.
