No software disk to load 1700 into Dell 6400 Inspiron laptop.

When I opted the search on my laptop, I still was unable to add the printer to my computer. How can I add this printer without the software disk?

    I downloaded the drivers from Dell directly. But the Printer Wizard refuses to recognize them.

In Windows, how do I install my printer? Most new printers, especially USB printers, come with installer programs. If you have neither installation instructions nor an installation program, you can use one of the following procedures to install most printers:
USB printers (Windows 98, Me, 2000, and XP only)

  1. Make sure that the USB cable is unplugged from your computer and your printer. USB devices work differently from older devices and usually need to have the drivers installed before you connect the device.

  2. If you have an installation disk, insert it into the drive. If there is an installer provided, it should run or be executed here. Follow its instructions, and it should take care of installing your printer in a few moments.

  3. If you don't have an installation program, plug the USB cable into your computer and your printer. This should trigger the Add New Hardware Wizard.

  4. Click Next, and then select Search for the best driver for your device. Click Next.

  5. Uncheck all options except Specify a Location. Click Browse. Browse to the disk, CD, or directory where your printer drivers are located. Click OK, and then click Next twice. Note: You can download some drivers from the web. Consult the web site of your printer's manufacturer, or see Where can I find driver updates for my Windows computer?
  6. When all the files are copied, click Finish.

  7. Turn on your printer. Windows should detect the printer's presence and finish the installation. If the option to print a test page is offered, do so. This will confirm the installation. Click Finish.

The most laptop now comming with recovery software loaded on one of their disk partition (generally D: drive). So it will help you to get back all sofware and driver as it was issued by company.
So you can use this utility to get back your OS and drivers.

If this is not the case with you. then you should go the dell website, navigate the drivers and downloads section and enter your service tag no (not model no.) and then it will give you all the supported drivers for you laptop. Download as per your requirement. And install them.

Thanks
