I had no problem installing the printer driver on the first computer it was linked to. I have a new Dell computer with Windows Vista operating system and I cannot get it to work although when I go to the Control Panel, it shows it as the active printer.

I do not have the installation disc for my Dell 1710n printer. I have been onto the website and downloaded the driver, but when I try and print it asks me to use the new hardware wizard. When I do this...


Hi, welcome to FixYa.

Most printer do want you to install their driver first BEFORE you plug it into your computer.
In the middle of installing the driver, usually there is an instruction to plug your printer.
This is must be understand, since this is most failure in printer driver installation.

I don't have the installation C.D. that goes to my Dell Printer Photo 964 and I need to install it on my computer


Hi,

You can download the installation driver from manufacturer's support website by clicking this link

On the page which opens, select the operating system of your computer (Windows Xp/ Vista..) from the drop-down menu. Then download the required drivers and software.

The list of available drivers will load only after selecting the operating system of the computer.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa.

I download the drivers but when I go to install it says it cannot find them


Depending on the make and model of your computer and operating system, you'll need to disconnect the printer. Download and run the patch(printer cleanup utility) until you're prompted to restart your computer.

Restart your computer.

Install the proper drivers. You'll get a message, the printer is not connected. Connect the printer at this time(powered on)

If using Windows 7, install the Vista drivers in the compatibility mode. Vista 32-bit for Windows 7 32-bit and Vista 64-bit for Windows 7 64-bit.

Links to the patch/drivers and installing in the compatibility mode can be found at...

Im trying to install an old printer on a new vista comp w/o disks


Windows Vista" is your operating system.
I would start by uninstalling (undoing) any of the printer software that you have installed, and try again. It sounds like at this point that you may have bits and pieces of both 'XP' and 'Vista' drivers installed.
Your link is pointing to the right page at Dell, just select the "driver" under the windows Vista tab.
I'm not sure how that software will be packaged, But I assume that it is self installing once you download it. You just click on it to start the installation. Usually you will leave you USB cable to the printer unplugged until after the installation, and then you are prompted to plug it in.
I'm not sure if this will help, but it's difficult to know exactly what you have done to this point.

HP OJ 5610 Drivers-? Can not install printer.


In this case, there's no mystery as to the cause of the problem. You will be unable to use this printer with your operating system because there are no existing print drivers that work with 64 bit Vista. Your printer will work with Windows 98, Windows 2000, and Windows XP, but not with Vista at all.

You have only two options...use a different HP printer that will work with Vista, or get a PC that has one of the supported operating systems on it and connect your current printer to that PC.

Sorry. I know this isn't the answer you were looking for, but that's the best I can do until the proper drivers become available.

Updated to Windows Vista and now the Dell 922 AIO scanner won't work


For windows Vista; it is imperative to run the Vista patch which can be found on the Dell website (Downloads and drivers).
Make sure that you run the patch, after removing the printer USB cable from the computer. Restart the computer as the patch suggests and then install the Vista specific drivers, which also need to be downloaded from Dell Website.
Again, do not connect the printer unless the installation software asks you to.
For scanner issues, those who are unable to get anything scanned to their computer, and are able to print, it is essentialy a Firewall/Anti-virus issue. You can check that out by trying to scan using an application such as MSPaint (Start> type 'mspaint' > hit enter).
