Question about Dell 922 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

XP says printer is seen as new hardware and won't go away

Had to reformat HD and reinstall all programs and driver disks.
I used the Dell restore system disks provided.
Now every time the system loads up the add hardware indicator comes up saying:
1. A new video device has been identified.
I have tried to reinstall several times with out success, it keeps coming up.
If I click "cancel" it will go away

2. A new printer device has been identified.
(On inspecting the system it shows the printer is installed and it functions fine)
I have tried several times to reinstall and even went to Dell support site and FINALLY found an updated driver. Which, I downloaded and installed.
This did not fix the problem!
The failed to install window continues to pop up and will not close. The only way to keep it from coming up is to unplug the printer.

When you do a restore on those, yes, you load XP, then you have to run the drivers disk.
The trick is, after you restore windows, you have to install the chipset driver first.
Reboot
Then do sound, NIC (NIC has to be done manually), and video (don't worry about the USB drivers, they get taken care of in the windows updates)
Reboot
After all of that is in, do your windows updates (of course reboot again)
Then do windows update manually (START>Update Windows, Custom) and make sure to include hardware updates.
Once all of that is in, then attach the printer (don't turn it on) install the printer software, and turn the printer on when it tells you to.

Not doing the restore in this order will result in the errors you are getting.

The chipset drivers first is the key to the whole project.
(I've probably done 100+ of these).

I don't know if you can go back in now to do these steps, you might be better off, starting all over.

Try that, and let us know.

Have u considered switching and installing a new hard drive and using your old one to retrieve your files (if u have any important files) ?

If you want to start from scratch, you can always buy a new HD [super cheap like $40 per 320 GB] THEN, since you say u have WXPSB and the disc for the laptop [with all the component drivers], I don't understand why you haven't just done this already?
Who cares about a system restore! If it's that bad, then just dont use that as your main HD.
I can show you how to access all your data..... as long as your HD is operational, the data is in there. That virus just makes important stuff into hidden files and directories. Stop giving permission to programs without reading the terms..you'd be amazed to read what you're agreeing to sometimes!!
Cheers, mate!

How can I reformat my A20m IBM Thinkpad..


Doing a Format on your PC Should Be A Last Resort! Reformatting your Windows computer is usually the absolute last resort and is often done unnecessarily. Before you go through the process of doing a reformat of your hard drive please take a few moments to read through the rest of our website. If you are reformatting to fix problems with your Windows computer it's possible that by using some of the tips on our site, or by downloading or purchasing some of the tools or products that we link to, you might be able to avoid the need to reformat your computer. Because doing a complete reformat of your computer will erase the contents of the hard drive and require you to reinstall all software, reformatting is usually a last resort. Some Computer Manufacturers Make Reformatting Easy Many name-brand PC manufacturers include a restore-disk which makes it easy to reformat your PC and return it to the state it was in on the day you purchased it. Some manufactures supply only a standard Microsoft Windows CD, and some (usually lower-end PC manufacturers) supply neither! If your PC did not come with a restore or reformatting CD, then you will need to take extra steps to format your hard drive and get Windows re-installed. Back Up Your Files Before You Reformat your Windows PC!Because the reformat or restore process erases everything on your computer, it is critical to have a backup of any important files on your computer. You will also need your original software install disks to reinstall any software you have purchased.

Things to do before you reformat your PC hard drive
  • Write down or print out all notes and internet pages because once the format process begins, you will no longer have access to them (or anything else in the PC)
  • As already stated, BACKUP all important files and data! When you reformat your computer everything will be erased!
  • Make sure you have all the CDs and other software. All programs will have to be reinstalled after you format the hard drive. Don't forget about software that came with hardware such as printers, scanners, etc.
  • Write down the brand and information for all the hardware on your computer. Look in the Device Manager and make note of the brand and model of network adaptors, video cards, sound cards, printers, modems, and displays. After reformatting you might need this information to reinstall drivers.

I want to reformat myextensa 2300 laptopanits not working by the method in the booklet on the info disk can you please tell me how to clear the hard drive and restore the system to original


You will still need the original drivers and OS using this method first you need to remove your hard drive, determine wether it is an IDE or a SATA or other connections and get a USB IDE or SATA connection connect this to your hard disk open you HD to another PC like a USB flash Card back up all DAT using this technique then reformat you HD return your HD to you laptop reinstall OS and drivers then you have a fresh laptop. Buying a new Hard disk will also be easier then you can just use your old HDD as a backup. Best of luck read manuals and be careful.
