I have used my printer several times on my HP Vista laptop. Now I can't get printer to work at all. What do I need to do?
Can you copy a document under the glass? Black and white and color?
Printer connected usb cable?
Virus program and firewall you're using?
Vista 32-bit or 64-bit?
What is a Dell Service Tag and how do I locate it?

I can use my copier and fax and all that but just can't use it with the laptop. Not sure of 32 or 64 how do i figure that out?
avast Anitvirus and I have Norton
stupid me it is 64 I figured it out how to look...
First run Delete Print Jobs to remove any stuck print jobs from the queue.
Disconnect the printer.
Start, control panel, programs and features, Dell 964 Printer, uninstall.
Restart your computer. Make sure the printer was removed. Manual Printer Driver Removal
Download the Vista 64-bit drivers. Install the drivers. You'll get a message, the printer is not connected. Connect the printer at this time(powered on)
Links to the drivers can be found at...

Remember virus programs and firewalls will block communications.
Avast is NOT a problem for this printer, I used the Dell 964 Printer with Avast. You should NOT have 2 virus programs installed, they sometimes conflict with each other.
If you use Norton, then Allow a printer past Norton
If you decide to remove Norton, please use the Norton Removal Tool.
Thanks for the help....I forgot to come back and say it works.......THANKSS......
Glad you got it working! Thanks for posting back.
