    when you attach a network printer it allows that other operating systems may use it and offers to make those drivers available.Are you trying to install a printer from another pc or is this the pc the printer is attached to? Don't forget to rate the advice!http://www.aa1consulting.com

I will assume you have the Printer connected directly to a PC via the USB printer cable on our network.

a. Start - Run - Control - Ok
b. Open 'Printers and Faxes"
c. Open "Dell A920"
d. Print "Test Page" to assure the printer is working and connected.
e. With the "Dell A920" properties open - find the tab for Sharing.
f. Now select Share the Printer and name it.

At each Workstation you will need do steps a-b, and add the printer. Select browse network when adding the printer and find the Workstation with the shared printer.

If your Firewall on each Workstation is blocking "Print and File Share" you will need to change the settings to allow this procedure through.

Here is a link that may help further.

I have a dell printer A920 and an acer computer with windows 7. Having trouble getting the printer to work


First run Delete Print Jobs to remove any stuck print jobs in the queue.

Disconnect the printer.

Download and run the patch(printer cleanup utility) until it prompts you to restart your computer.

Restart your computer. Make sure the printer is removed. Manual Printer Driver Removal

Download and install the Vista 32-bit drivers for Windows 7 32-bit or the Vista 64-bit drivers for Windows 7 64-bit. Install the Vista drivers in the Vista Compatibility mode You'll get a message, the printer is not connected. Connect the printer at this time(powered on)

Links to the patch/drivers can be found at...

I am only trying to hook the darn thing up to my newer, refurbished computer....what is the problem?


Had the printer been in use previously? Does the driver load? Does it attempt to print? Are there any error messages?

Dell a920 printer not recognized by computer


Hope this can help you - it actually is a Lexmark printer driver. I had to have an expert come in and fix my printer when a virus deleted my printer. We couldn't reinstall it to save our lives - try the Dell site, they should have downloadable driver for this.

Misplace CD for Printer A920; need to download if possible without CD


You can find the driver for the Dell A920 printer at:
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&os=WLH&osl=en&catid=&impid=&SystemID=PRN_ALL_A920

If your operating system is Windows XP, you can download the driver directly from that page. If you have Windows 2000 or Windows Vista, you can change the operating system at the top of the page to get the correct download.

Dell A920 with Windows Vista


Believe it or not... the driver is buried on the Dell site for Vista 64-bit. I search and searched ... and there it was.

http://support.us.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R153048&formatcnt=1&libid=0&fileid=203948

In any case, I downloaded it, installed it, and it works fine. All the buttons (scan/copy) on the top work as well as printing. Now if I could just get my old XP machines to print to it on the network. But.. I think that is another thread.
