Dell all in one printer won't load to Vista

I just bought a new computer and want to use my Dell All IN ONE PRINTER 922. The installer runs and recognizes the drivers but won't load them so I get an error. I think it's because it's not compatable to Vista as I found some files that look like they are for Windows XP-SP2. I even bought a new printer that came with the computer (Lexmark) but it doesn't work worth a darn with Vista either which is why I want to use my Dell printer. I have an emachine PC- model T5226. if that makes a difference. Thanks for any help you can give, I have 4 printers and the only one that works with Vista with NO ERRORS is my LexMark office all in one and it prints only black and white and I use my printers for pictures a lot.

My dell 922 aio was functioning properly when I had windows XP, now that I have Vista, only the printer portion will work and not the scanner or fax. Do I need updated drivers?


Here is the web page to download:

Dell 922 Vista

I would Save the files to your computer and install them from there and not Run them from the download page.

Thanks for using Fixya.

NOTE: Uninstall the previous software before installing the new driver.

Printer (922) won't install on new laptop

If your laptop is running Vista and your old desktop was running XP and the disk you got with your printer had drivers that worked with XP and Vista is not listed on them, it would be a case of incompatibility. You would need to go to the Dell website to download updated drivers for Vista if they are not of the standard Vista driver package. (The driver model changed between XP and Vista making XP drivers incompatible with Vista.)

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).

Dell 922 Printer

You will have to use the New Dell 922 VISTA drivers and not the XP drivers in order for it to work with your Vista Loaded PC. The new drivers for the 922 under Vista are available for download at Dells website. Check out this link Hope this helps.
