When used by my wife (administrator) and qued to print it will default(?) to the "Save as" screen which displays "File name:*xps" and "Save as type: xps documents".

In administrator login the default printer is "Microsoft XPS Document Writer", make sure that the default printer is the HP Printer.
OR
You have to change in the Print dialog box, select the HP Printer instead of "Microsoft XPS Document Writer"

Press and hold the "Ctrl" and "F11" keys simultaneously when the Dell splash screen appears. The "Dell PC Restore by Symantec" window will appear. Click "Restore."
Just make sure you have saved all your data before doing that.

New Dell Inspiron connected to HP 820Cse printer. Won't print.


I've not worked with one of these cables before, but here's what I would do: Right-click on the printer icon and go to properties. You'll be looking for the tab that says "ports." Open that tab and see what port the computer thinks it's using for the printer. Chances it says it's using a parallel port, but it is in fact, using a USB port. I can't tell you which to choose without looking at what you see, but I think you might find one that makes reference to a USB port with a parallel connection of some type. Try clicking on that and see if your situation improves.
