Open control panel, hardware and sound, printers, add a printer. choose add a local printer, use an existing port. Try generic ieee 1284.4. Then pick either the hp 7200 or 7800. I has seen them both suggested. I used the 7800. I can print but no duplex. Still trying to figure that out. Hope it helps.

HP Deskjet 920c will not work with my Dell inspiron 1720 with windows vista. The wizard asks which port I want to use but only gives LPT 1,2 or 3. My computer only uses USB. What can I do?


If you really wanted to use it,you have to buy a USB to LPT port or parallel port cable. The other end of the cable is USB and the other end is LPT.

I have a lexmark X63all-in-one and the driver files are not being accepted by my new dell inspiron 1525 windows vista.


Hi,
Make sure you are installing the proper Windows Vista drivers. I guess for the given printer Vista driver are not available. Sorry lexmark has not yet released Windows Vista driver for the given model. They only support this model in Windows 98/ME/2000/XP.Does Vista have a ADD PRINTERS Wizard (like XP does)? If so you might try running it and see if Microsoft included built-in support. Or you might experiment with other generic models to see if you can get basic printing features. To download the drivers for 98/ME/2000/XP, Click on the below and select the operating system and download.

I need to hook up my Lexmark Z735 printer to my new Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop. How can I do this? My laptop is Vista.


You need to look at the printers manual or the box for the required system use before trying to install it. If it's not compatible with Window's Vista, it will not work.

I cannot connect a dell 720 printer to dell laptop Inspiron 1501 (Vista). It says it is installed but a message comes up that communication is not available.


First, shut down your computer and priner. Unplug both from the wall outlet, Unplug the printer from the computers USB receptical. Next, plug both the computer and printer back into the wall, and turn on ONLY THE COMPUTER. After the computer is fully initialized, plug the printer into the computer's USB socket and turn printer on. A small window on your screen should say:NEW HARDWARE FOUND. it will ask if you want it installed, click on YES. and just follow the onscreen instructions, and make sure your printer driver is compatible with VISTA..To check, go to http://support.dell.com and left click on WINDOWS VISTA SUPPORT. Left click on LATEST VISTA DRIVER UPDATES, and follow the onscreen instructions to check what you have now, and what you may have to download.. If, after downloading and installing VISTA COMPATIBLE SOFTWARE,you still get the communication message, try this: On the windows screen, left click on START. left click on CONTROL PANEL, then left click on PRINTERS. Find your Dell printer icon and RIGHT CLICK on the icon.. On the drop down menu, left click on PROPERTIES. On the Properties window, left click on the PORTS tab. Make sure USB VIRTUAL PRINTER PORT FOR DELL is checked. If no, select that port, left click on the check box, also check ENABLE BIDIRECTIONAL SUPPORT and ENABLE PRINT SPOOLING boxes. Then left click on APPLY, then Ok. The Dell printer icon should show READY. Try a test print to check operation.
