You can download the drivers for your printer from this link;
Dell 1700 Laser Printer drivers for windows xp
Open the link, click the blue "Download" button, another new pop window will come up, again click the first "Download" button.
There is nothing on the photoconductor unit to 'tell' the printer that it is new, you have to do this yourself, by following the photocinductor reset procedure (it's in the manual, or Dell 1700 RESETTING DRUM PAGE COUNTER 1) Leave the power on, insert toner cartridge, and leave door open 2) Press the cancel button and hold till the leds flash 3) Release cancel button and close toner cartridge door

i think u might have used ur printer without paper often . unplug the printer from system and switch it off.Replug it again on the system ant switch it on and see. Even then if it is not printing uninstall the drivers for printers and reinstall again and print.
How did you install the printer?
I have found that if you just let your computer recognise new hardware, it really has a hard time with the USB printing to the 1700's.
Originally there was a disk that came with the 1700 printer. You do want to use that.
During the install, you run the software, and then turn on the printer. (You can have the printer on during the install, but ignore the Windows Wizards that come up).
If you don't have the original 1700 install disk, you can download it from Dell.
The problem is with USB port configuration. These little 1700's are just a pain sometimes if not installed the way they were originally designed.
