I have a Dell AIO 924 Printer. It always worked fine and I don't use it that much but today a window popped up that said communication not available. I have all the wires connected and it's on but it's still saying that!! Any ideas on how to fix this. I need to print up my resume =(

Assuming this is a USB connection, open your Device Manager:
Click on the + by USB controllers
If there are any yellow exclamation points or question marks, delete the controller and reboot the computer
windows will reinstall the controller
