Nope..you'll need the disk that came with monitor or PC at the beginning. Maybe on disk with utilities and drivers. Also, if you have video ram, that's a factor too.

The Windows Vista/7 driver may work. Others have managed to get the 9 to work but Dell doesn't have a Win8 driver. First are you installing the printer for the first time to the computer or did you upgrade the OS and are reinstalling the driver? If you have done an upgrade or attempted to install once before, you will need to delete any jobs in the printer queue.(Win+X > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > View Printers and Devices. Select your printer and then see what's printing. Cancel all jobs.) If you can't delete the jobs, press the Windows key and type in Command Prompt. Right click on the appropriate program and at the bottom of the screen, select Run As Administrator. Type in "net stop spooler" followed by enter (without the quotes). Follow that line with "net start spooler" again followed by pressing enter. After you see the responses, restart the computer. Then unplug the printer from the computer. Then uninstall the printer driver. (Win+X > Device Manager. Expand the Printers section. Right-click on the printer and then select uninstall driver.) Manually remove the printer from the Devices and Printers list. (Win+X > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > View Printers and Devices. Select your printer and then click Remove Device.)

The driver itself is available here: http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/Product/dell-966 . Make sure that you select the x64 version if you have a 64-bit version of the OS. Most desktops and laptops currently sold have the 64-bit version of Windows 8. An older computer that was upgraded may have the 32-bit version of the OS.
Find the install file that you downloaded from the Dell site. Right click on the file and select Properties. Under the Compatibility tab, choose Always Run in Compatibility Mode for Windows 7 (use the drop-down menu to select the OS version). Click Apply and then OK to save the setting. Now double-click on the installer to run it. You will need to acknowledge the UAC to allow the program to run. You will need to repeat this Compatibility step on the Setup file after extracting the files from the downloaded file. Keep track of where the extraction places the files; my computer showed the default location of C:\dell\drivers\R165704 .
Tablets with Windows RT probably can't use the driver since it isn't offered through the Windows Store.

I hope this helps.

Nldtr missing


Am I right in thinking you mean NTLDR and not NLDTR? If so here is the fix.

To fix the error on startup of NTLDR is missing in Win XP you should follow the steps below using a full version Win XP CD and the Recovery Console.
Insert the Windows CD and start the computer making sure the computer boots to the CD first.
When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R. (this may take a while to load)
Type a number corresponding to the Windows installation you wish to repair (usually 1) and press Enter. When prompted, type the administrator password and press Enter. (if no password was entered on you system then just press enter)
From the command prompt you want to copy NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM from the i386 folder of the CD to the root folder of the hard drive. This is much easier than it sounds and can be done by typing the commands below.
In the examples below C: is presumed to be your hard drive and D: is presumed to be your CD drive. You will need to change the drive letters to your own if you have more than one drive. ( if you are having problems entering \ then try pressing the # key to see if that works)
Type these 2 commands exactly and press enter after each one.
COPY D:\I386\NTLDR C:\
COPY D:\I386\NTDETECT.COM C:\
Now remove the Windows XP CD from the drive and restart the computer and your computer should now start normally.

I have a problem to install window 98 .


Another solution is to download and install Microsoft Virtual PC in XP, create a Virtual PC drive, and install Windows 98 onto the Virtual PC drive. This works fine if you want to run Win 9X programs which don't require access to USB ports on your computer. If you need Windows 98 to have full access to all of the computer hardware, then use palaboy's solution.

Maxtor Portable Hard Drive 250GB


Hello Robbie.

Basically all you do is drag and drop. If you open up the drive (By double clicking it) then just drag the files you wish to store right into the drive and hey presto your done let them copy over which will take time depending on how many files you are sending over.

Good luck please dont hesitate to get back to me Robbie

Pc will not open any disks, software etc


Sounds like you might have an issue with the hardware. I had a similar issue about a year ago. turned out it was just by chance that I lost the DVD drive after I loaded a new software package for DVD movies. So check to make sure your DVD will play any disk and let me know what you find.

Start up


there may be several reasons as to why your puter is doing this. lets do some basic checks to try to get past this safe startup and into a regular startup.

1. ensure your power supply is good. many times a brown out or surge may cause a default as you have. this is done by doing common sense things as ensuring the power cord is completely plugged in at the power supply and into the back of the unit. (a simple loose connection will kick up this window u mentioned). ensure all connections to your cpu unit are secure as well as the wall power supply if you have a ups take it off line....for this

2. if you are able disassemble the unit (cpu) and ensure all cards are properly seated or if you in the recent past have installed a new item (video card, memory, or ect) you can reseat it or remove it. also. take necessary precautions.

3. software- if all the above items dont do it for you. your issue may be software. as mentioned above you can do a soft reset. first set the bios to default. if problem isnt fixed go to windows xp bios for the soft reset. this will attempt to repair drivers ect on windows and usually dosent affect files.

4. hard reset- this will erase all data currently on ur system. hard decision but you can do it. do you have dual hard disk drive. c and a D or other letter identifes second drive. this probably the last resort you want to take especially if you want old files. keep in mine however there are programs out there that will scan your hard drives for old files and they can sometimes be recovered. do the homework..on someone elses computer...bad joke.

anyway this is a simple approach and i hope your experience with ends up as a good one.

good luck
