Dell-All-in-One printer. Won't communicate with my

Dell-All-in-One A290 printer. Won't communicate with my new laptop . Printer will print but I still get msg no communication. Installed cd on my new laptop (Dell 1525) and the USB is connected. I can't even find the driver info on the computer after installation of cd. I can print emails, etc. but can't get to the All-in-One Solution menu like on my old computer. Sorry I'm also a little computer ignorant.

Bidirectional Printing - A means of printing by a computer printer which prints one line from left to right, then the following line from right to left. Such printing is faster than printing in one direction only, as there is no need to wait for the carriage or other imaging mechanism to return to the left margin before starting a line.
how to enable bi-directional printing.here's how:
  1. -click on start
  2. -click on printers and faxes (control panel->printers and faxes)
  3. -right-click on Dell Photo All in One Printer 964 All-In-One icon
  4. - click on properties
  5. -click on ports tab
  6. -down at the bottom there's a small box before bi-directional support
  7. -tick the box to enable it then click apply,ok
  8. -try printing again

note: in vista , printers and faxes is printers.in win 7 ,it's devices and printers.
and properties in win 7 is printer properties

I have seen that in most of the cases (with lexmark and dell printers) it is fixed by reinstalling the printer software. Be sure that you completely remove the older drivers using the cd or using add/remove programs
