Question about Dell 946 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Hi there I have lost the install CD and would like to install my Dell all in one 946 printer to my new laptop. I runs with windows 7, and the software I have downloaded from the internet does not seem to be working. At present once I connect the printer by USB, it continues to say there is a troubleshooting issue. This says that the driver is missing and is unable to find a solution online. Thank you for your help. regards Sam

Describe your 946 All-In-One InkJet Printer Problem I'm running windows 7 on a Gateway laptop and managed to get it to print at one point but then installed some other items to get it to recognize...


This printer is not a wireless rpinter, so I guess you were trying to attach it to a print server of some type.

Try using these Recommended Wireless Router Settings,I use channel 11. I would make a new SSID to make connecting easier.

If your computer came with Windows 7, then follow the procedure below. If you upgraded your computer, the did you install the chipset drivers first. If using a Dell Computer that was upgraded, the desktop/notebook system utility and the chipset drivers need installed first or the rest of the drivers will fail to install. How to Download and Install Drivers in the Correct Order

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.

Restart your computer. Make sure the printer is removed.
Manual Printer Driver Removal

Download the Vista 32-bit drivers for Windows 7 32-bit or the Vista 64-bit drivers for Windows 7 64-bit. Install the Vista drivers in the Vista
Compatibility mode You'll get a message, the printer is not connected. Connect the printer at this time(powered on).

Just got a new lenovo laptop and my dell 946 will not print anything from it. Not sure if it's a compatability problem?


Did you install the DELL printer-driver software onto the new laptop?

If you've lost that CD-ROM, access the manufacturer's web-site:

http://support.dell.com

and enter '946' and do a search for the device-driver software.
