Error Message "Communication Not Available

Ï have a Dell All in One 810 printer installed on a Dell Laptop Inspiration 6400 and all functions work.. I have tried to install the same printer (free standing on clone Desktop with windows XP. All signs are that the device is detected and connected to the UBS port. All other settings appear to be identical to the Dell Inpiration 6400 but the error message "Communication Not Available "keeps comming up. I have followed all of the troubleshooting clues without success. What do you suggest.

    i Have the same problem. I followed the advice provided to unintall all
    other Printer driver , boot and reinstall the dell 810 software. The
    theory was that the Dell driver was being overridedn by the HP drivers.
    This did not work. The printer report indicates that the printer is
    printing but the message is not communicating at this time. Are ther
    any suggestions.

I have a dell i810 and a HP dv6 laptop running windows 7 64. Ever since i upgraded from vista I cannot get my printer to work. The scanner works just fine however, whenever i try and print something the error "could not communicate with printer" appears and nothing prints. There is no avalible patch for this printer. Under the Devices and Printers tab on the start menu i right clicked all the printers and removed them all. I have tried reinstalling and still the problem persists.? anything else guys?

No sound in my Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop

If the issue is no sound after reinstallation of Windows, then your issue is most likely a driver issue. Many items in the system will function with native windows drivers but the audio on a I6400 is not one of them. Installation of drivers in the correct order is critical to Dell portables functioning correctly. Correct driver order is:

Notebook System Software.
Chipset Utility
Video Driver
Audio Driver
Modem Driver
Network Driver
Wireless Driver
Touchpad Driver
Quickset Utility

All other applications and drivers (MS Office, Printer driver etc)

This system is also equipped with Media Direct capability. For Media Direct to function, the system's HDD must be prepared using the Media Direct installation CD, then WIndows installed, then the Media Direct application. If you have no plans to use media direct, this can be skipped (Most people do)

Uninstall and reinstall the software. Normally the software installed on the computer controls the scanner functions for the all in one dell stuff. Check dells site also for any updates that might correct this issue.
