Hi current this printer is not compatible with windows 7 so you wont get any official driver which would make it work on windows 7

However there are some alternative that you can try to solve the problem before buying a new compatible printer

Download driver for windows vista from the following dell website

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?os=WLH&catid=-1&dateid=-1&impid=-1&osl=EN&typeid=-1&formatid=-1&servicetag=&SystemID=PRN_ALL_A920&hidos=WW1&hidlang=en&TabIndex=&scanSupported=True&scanConsent=False

Save it on to your desktop and then right click on it (do not double click to run or execute it)

Click on properties...then click the tab for Compatiblity and then check the box Run thu=is program in compatiblity mode for..select the drop down for windows vista

Then execute the program...if you are able to install and run it without an error it will solve the problem...else only option is to buy a new printer

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

Disconnect the printer.

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

Windows 7 were can i download the drivers for windows 7


Unfortunately, according to Dell's website, it looks like the A920 InkJet Printer is not compatible with Windows 7.

You could download earlier drivers for that printer from this page though (for Windows 2000, Windows XP and Vista).

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.

User manuals and other support information is also provided in technical support link on the webpage. Good luck, Lolita
