Check the link below and if I have the correct model printer shown.If so , then Dell has not yet written a VISTA 64 bit driver for this model printer.  You may contact them,of course,  and see if their is a work around like 32 bit emulation.

How can an xp, window7, window8 desktop computer communicate with an IBM 6262 T12 printer


Hey Jerry,
In order for your printer to work with each operating system you will need to install a Printer driver for each Operating System for the printer to work. Check IBM website for the drivers or search the internet to see if you can find drivers for this printer for each OS listed.
Thank You,

I have a Dell Dim 2400 and no connection with HP Deskjet 3070A.


Charles, has this combination worked previously, have you been able to print from your Dell Dimension 2400 to your HP Deskjet 3070A successfully?

If the answer to the above is Yes, then if you believe that the printer is still working correctly and you can test this with a different computer able to print to it, you should consider uninstalling and re-installing the HP software and device drivers for this printer.

If you have not printed to this printer successfully previously, have you tested the printer with a different computer and proven it is still working fine?

If the printer works fine to a different computer then providing you are using the same USB cable to connect to your Dell 2400, the problem needs to be narrowed down further.

Check that you can plus other USB devices into the port on the Dell used for the HP printer - if these work, then your USB port is good - if not, try another port if you have one.

If your USB hardware is good, then again you are left with the need to uninstall and re-install the HP software and device drivers - it may be worth trying to download the latest version of such software if available. HP tend to update their All-in-One software on a regular basis.

I have a Veratec desktop computer and am having all kinds of problems with it. It is one year old. Will not communicate with my dell printer A920 and is difficult to operate otherwise. Please help.


Well what operating system do you have on it? Windows7 doesnt like some printers. check online for print drivers and update them. Follow this link to help you with that... http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/kcs/document?c=us&l=en&s=gen&docid=DSN_FA36C542525D975EE030030ABD621881&isLegacy=true
you can also try this approach... First, let's make sure your computer has the latest Windows Updates, especially .net framework, needed to run many applications and the latest Java.

Disconnect your printer.


Download and run this patch (***WARNING*** The patch for this printer also removes other Dell applications, like Dell Dock, Dell QuickSet and other Dell applications)(These applications can be downloaded at Drivers & Downloads and can be reinstalled) to completely remove the printer from your computer. Run the patch(A MUST on Vista Machines) until it prompts you to restart your computer.


If using Windows 7 also try...Manual Printer Driver Removal


Restart your computer.


Download the proper drivers.


XP Drivers


Vista 32-bit Drivers


Vista 64-bit drivers


All other drivers


Install the proper drivers. You'll be prompted when to connect your printer(powered on)

***To install drivers, sometimes the file unzips and does nothing. You have to look for the setup.exe file, right click on it, then left click run as administrator***

If using Windows 7, use the Vista drivers in the compatibility mode.


Right click on the setup.exe file, left click properties, left click compatibility. Change the compatibility to Vista(Try Vista SP2). Then install the proper drivers. You'll be prompted when to connect the printer(powered on)

***To install drivers, sometimes the file unzips and does nothing. You have to look for the setup.exe file, right click on it, then left click run as administrator***


As for scanning, if you have the disk that came with the printer, then insert the Printer disk and stop it from running. Go to My Computer and double click on it. Look for the drive with the Dell disk in it. Right click on it, left click explore. Look for the OCR Folder. In the OCR Folder, there is an Abbyy Folder. right click on setup.exe, that's in the Abbyy Folder and left click run as administrator. This will install the OCR program.


Scanning

Scanning using USB connection, open the Dell All-In-One Center, click on scanning and copying and scan from there.

Scanning wirelessly, use the scan buttons on the printer.

Computer to Printer Communication problem


Uninstall the printer software, then uninstall the printer itself. then reinstall the software drivers first , then the software.
Remember most USB printers need the drivers and software installed BEFORE you connect them to the USB port on the computer.
You also might look in the device manager for any yellow ! or ? in the USB section. This would indicate a USB driver issue. Post again if you need more help...

I am so frustrated. I have a brand new computer and running on Windows Vista. It is not recognizing the Lexmark 1270 printer. I've tried everything. When I hook the printer up to my other computer...


Had a similiar issue with Vista not playing nice with my Dell all in one.
Had to go to the dell site and find a driver for this unit that will work with Vista, but first they will show a list of compatible printers and non-compatible so I would look for that first.
Good luck.
