Probably broke a solder point. Need to take in for repair, or find a friend who is an electrician.

Note: Needs to use low heat solder.

Trying to install the software on a new laptop with windows 7 - not working - message says 'please wait while the prnter sends information to Windows'


If you have the original software of the printer and that printer was iriginally designed to work with XP or early Vista, then you may have to go to the Dell support page and look for drivers and/or software for Windows 7. Not all devices are supported by Windows 7 and new drivers are coming out all the time.

Not able recognize the usb device for windows 7


If you can, check that the printer is still recognized on another pc. It's possible that the printer is faulty.
If it does work on another pc, then the next step is to try a different USB port on your computer, preferabbly one at the back of the computer, not the front.
Also make sure you have install the drivers before you connect it to your computer.

Can't install old printer on newer computer


The appropriate printer drivers are bundled with XP. With the printer connected to the computer and powered on, the system should automatically recognize the printer and install the correct drivers if it is connected via USB. If it is connected to the parallel port, go to Control Panel -> Printers, select Add New Printer and follow the on-screen prompts.
