Often printers need to be left unplugged from the USB port and not plugged in until the driver installation process requests you to do so.

I would also double check you have powered the printer on, without power the system will not be able to detect it.

Why wont printer start up ?

It could be a number of reasons:
1. a simple solution is to initiate what is called, 'power recycling' (although this is assuming that the printer did already work at some prior point); this is where you turn off the printer for about 5 minutes, then turn on, which usually allows the system to reengage itself.
2. did you install the software for the printer? If you did not then your PC might not know the printer is attached. Is the software installed properly?; meaning you must unplug the printer from the PC, then install the software, then connect the printer to the PC after the software is completely installed. If you did it in reverse, then you need to uninstall the software, then start over by doing what I just mentioned.
3. the USB port you have the printer cord inserted into could be bad on your PC.
4. the printer itself has an internal problem and needs to be repaired, or if the warranty is still in place, have it replaced with another new unit.

My dell 160l does'nt have video can i install?

A Dell 160I is a printer, as far as I know. They don't come with video cards, although many modern printers have a small LCD display.
Apparently yours doesn't have this.
If you don't have it, then you're stuck with what you have.

Install printer

Although more information would be appreciated, the rules for this are simple.
1. Install the Software (Drivers) that came with the Printer: If you don't have the original CD for the printer, go to the manufacturer's website and the support section and search for it by model number, download and install. Sometime during the install process, you will probably be prompted to connect and power on your printer. When you see that message or if the software finishes installing without the prompt then...
2. Connect your printer to the computer via USB cable and power it on.
You're finished!

Not insatalling drivers

Is this during the installation? If so, unplug the printer, remove any driver/software you've installed (or partially installed) for it then re-boot the machine. Once the machine is restarted, plug in the printer first and allow Windows to detect it. Once it detects it, it will ask for the drivers, DO NOT run the setup for it. Instead, point it directly to the .INF file on your installation CD, and allow Windows to install it itself (you can then proceed to install the software from it (via the CD) once the printer is correctly installed). If you continue to have problems, you may want to consider downloading a new copy of the drivers to rule out corruption or a problem with the connection between your drive and the computer;
