Question about Dell 5110cn Laser Printer

2 Answers

Dell printer will not install

I have a Toshiba laptop that had a hard drive crash which has been replaced. I have Vista Ultimate and had difficulty getting the 5110CN to install originally. All the other computers on our home network print find but everytime I use the disk the install gets to the end and says there is an error and to restart the computer and try again. I have done this several times to no avail. Any suggestions? The printer is on Ethernet to the router. I have tried connecting directly to the laptop with no success.

    I downloaded the new drivers but what do I do with them? The install CD will not install the printer so how do I use the downloaded drivers??

    Thanks everyone, I took the TCP/IP settings from the other computer, added those, did a Windows Update to have the printer list updated and then Viola! I work.

Have you tried going to dell.com and getting the Vista drivers?

Here's the link:
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=PRN_LSR_5110CN&os=WLH&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Please note that there are several different things to download.. one of them being a patch... I recommend that you read the documentation carefully before you actually install anything.

Re-contact if you need more help/info.

Good Luck!

    For each one of the drivers on that page I linked you to, you can click the NAME (i.e. Dell Driver, Dell Firmware, Dell Hardware, etc.). It will then open a page with the driver description and instructions on what to do with them.
    If you have another computer that the printer is working on, I'd suggest you use that computer to bring up the information so that you have the choice to print the info so you have it handy when you go to do the installs.

    I'm going to link you to the first one (Dell Driver) --

    http://support.dell.com/support/download...

    Each one of those 5 drivers/patches has a page like this one...

    Sorry, not going to be super-simple, but it's all there.

    Glad you got it up and running... playing w/ the TCP/IP and other network settings was next... I try the easy/obvious solutions first if they seem pertinent.

It sounds like your vista pc is not compatible with the software for your printer so you should check the printer's website to see if there are any updates for it relating to vista compatibility.. most sites have been good about keep this up to date.. make sure you have the most current version of drivers for your printer.. hope this helps..d

    there should be a way to extract those drivers from where you saved them.. try double clicking on the file and a box should pop up asking if you want to run or save so choose the run option.. once that is done, then reboot, once rebooted then connect the printer and see what happens.. hope this helps more.. d

I have a Dell 944 all-in-one printer and just got a new Toshiba laptop. The new laptop uses Windows 7, which is not supported by the printer. Is there an update to the drivers & utilities to make...


Did you try the Vista drivers in the compatibility mode. Drivers and instructions can be found at...
http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/peripherals/f/3528/t/19306932.aspx

Let me know what happens.


If using Windows 7, use the Vista drivers in the compatibility mode.

Right click on the setup.exe file, left click properties, left click compatibility. Change the compatibility to Vista(Try Vista SP2). Then install the proper drivers. You'll be prompted when to connect the printer(powered on)
***To install drivers, sometimes the file unzips and does nothing. You have to look for the setup.exe file, right click on it, then left click run as administrator***

As for scanning, if you have the disk that came with the printer, then insert the Printer disk and stop it from running. Go to My Computer and double click on it. Look for the drive with the Dell disk in it. Right click on it, left click explore. Look for the OCR Folder. In the OCR Folder, there is an Abbyy Folder. right click on setup.exe, that's in the Abbyy Folder and left click run as administrator. This will install the OCR program.

Winxp with serv pak 3 crashes when installing konica minolta pagepro 1350w


It must be because the software is not compatible with SP3; I've seen this a few times already. Does the Dell have SP3 installed? If not, I dare say that is the issue.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

Scanner won't work on Dell 924


Same thing happened to me, only different model.

First, make sure you have the right drivers (and by that I mean 32-bit or 64-bit).

Go to control panel and remove your previous installation; reboot; reload the drivers with your All-In-One UNPLUGGED until they tell you to plug it in.

That was the trick that worked for me. Good Luck.
