Problem with printer connection

I have downloaded the driver for the Dell s2500n and followed the installation procedure as outlined on the website. Unfortunately, the printer remains unconnected to the computer and I am still unable to print. Am I doing something wrong/ missing a step?

Dell AIO922 and Dell Inspirion with Vista 64bit

windows Vista 64 bit it is important to run the Vista patch that you can download from the Dell website (Downloads and drivers).
Run the patch, after removing the printer USB cable from the computer then 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 to do so
Hope this will fix the problem
