Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?
(making a program work with windows 7)

Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver/application you installed is for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer/application first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:)) I have a dell photo printer 720, that I used with - julyallan01_52.jpg

Just bought a new computer and my Dell 720printer does not work? Thank you


If you bought a new computer it probably has Windows 7 installed and the Dell 720 may not be compatible. You can try downloading the Vista drivers from Dell here. They may work with Windows 7. If not, you'll need to replace the printer with a later, Windows 7 compatible one.

My Dell 720 printer won't work withmy dell 1521


All printers are compatible to a degree.

What operating system are you running on your dell 1521 laptop? What drivers are supported on your Dell 720 printer?

If you are running Windows Vista on your laptop and there are only drivers for your printer up until Windows XP and nothing is on Dell's website for your printer in terms of drivers, then you can only try to run Windows Vista in Compatibility Mode.

If this doesn't work, then you'll need to get a new printer.

New laptop Vista


I am guessing that the instal disk that you used was not for VISTA? Download and instal the VISTA driver from the DELL websie for you model printer, below:
