Dell A920 with Windows Vista

I have a new pc with Windows Vista but a cannot get my Dell A920 to connect to it.  The driver disc that came with the printer is not installing correctly because I believe it only works for previous Windows editions. When trying to print - a note comes up saying the computer is not connected to the printer. It says to try unplugging it from the computer and disconnecting the power source. Then turn off the computer and restart. Have done this several times with no results.

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.

Misplace CD for Printer A920; need to download if possible without CD


You can find the driver for the Dell A920 printer at:
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&os=WLH&osl=en&catid=&impid=&SystemID=PRN_ALL_A920

If your operating system is Windows XP, you can download the driver directly from that page. If you have Windows 2000 or Windows Vista, you can change the operating system at the top of the page to get the correct download.

Dell A920 Inkjet Printer is not communicating with an HP Pavillion dv6700 laptop with Vista Operating System


It could be related to Vista. Check Dells website to see if they have a Vista driver for it.

If you have another USB Cable you can try swapping it.

If you have a spare USB Port, you can try swapping that as well.

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.
