Firstly Check if u are installing the [Dell V515w] wireless driver of the printer or just installing the dell v515 driver , i would recommand u go to www.support.dell.com and look for the printer and download from tthe site and then download and install it , elsz try to add a printer from devices and printers and use the OS drivers to install it, also the printer needs to be with in 30 feet to be able to detect by the router to be print from the system
I would like to know the PC Operating System, is it XP or Vista ?
If this is XP there is a Print Spooler Reset which you can try Uninstalling Printer s/w may not help here
On this website you will find the FIXIT - download and run the Fixit
Follow the instructions and click on RESET PRINT SPOOLER and continue till it prompts you to restart the PC
Once the PC is restarted and you see the Desktop - Disconnect the Printer USB Cable from Printer or PC and connect it back. it will install the Printer Drivers or prompt you to insert the disk to install..
its most prob a driver problem, thats the trouble with vista if you have installed the cd driver disk that came with it,
its most prob only for xp it will run on vista but not all features will work go to hp web page click on the drivers and software location, then put in model number of printer then next it will give you diff. windows drivers and pick the vista one that with your pc/laptop but please un-install the software you are using first the shut down and restart..
then install the new drivers etc this should sort out your problem.
if still having problems please get back to me .. matdav69
The situation seems very vague, First off, you have to identify if you're using this for a corporate environtment usage or are you using this on a home network? Next question would be,if the network you're connecting the dell wireless adaptor to has reserved the ip address for the allocation of the printer. If not, then there are a few possible reasons for your situation:
IP Mismatch. If you're connecting the dell wireless adaptor directly to your printer and network, ensure that the IP ADDRESS of the printer is matching that of the ipaddress of the printer driver in your computer (Control panel>Printers>Right click printer>properties)
Driver Error. Download the latest driver for your model printer and install it on your notebook. Once this is done, make sure you are able to "see" the printer by printing a test page.
Not conencted to the netwrok. Sometimes, this happens when you're not connected to the netwrok (but you think you are just casue you see a "connected" icon). Make sure you're conencitng to YOUR network everytime you reboot and not mooch on some other netwrok.
Hope this helped. Please do let me know how it goes. Thank you.
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).
it's unusual to have same problem if completely uninstalled printer(removing printer, then uninstalling,after which use printer installation cd then re connect printer when prompted).
If you have a spare usb port install software then connect printer to a different usb port.
Lastly try; go to printers and faxes folder>right click on printer icon>properties>advanced, then click the radio button 'Print Directly to the Printer' and see if it prints.
Also make sure this printer is set to default printer
Try an updated driver, if any,from the Lexmark web site, as they are the same printer without the Dell logo.
