Default installing DEll 1700 printer problem

I went to Dell's website (can't find the installation disk) and downloaded the driver & firmware. The printer appears in the "printers & fax" window. So far so good, but it will not print. I removed the printer s/w reinstalled, rebooted same problem.

I went to the command prompt to verify if the two are 'talikng" to eachother, apparently not.

I had this same printer hooked up to this laptop before and worked just fine.

Any ideas?

You need to update the driver in device manager. Unless you already did this.

Uhm, did not see any driver relating to any printer in device manager? Should I be looking somewhere else?
