    Right it was my mates dell, I was setting it up for him and got everything from that site.

    But the problem now is getting the printer drivers he has a Dell All-in-One Printer 924 and the drivers are not on the page above, so thats fair enough I thought just search the site and get them which we did Here. but according to that his PC is not compatible? (and they are not working)

    How does that work? I thought the drivers would be for XP not the model of PC. the printer was working on the PC before the format.

    Any help? Where would we get the drivers?

    Thank you

    You're right, it shouldn't really have anything to do with the model of computer.

    Look in your device manager and see if your USB hub is enabled and working properly.

    Aside from that, uninstall the driver, redownload, and try it again. The only reason it should be telling you it's incompatible with your computer is if you have a different operating system, but you have XP, so there's no reason it shouldn't work. You found the correct driver...
