I tried to go to the dell website and install the drivers but that didnt help although the drivers were not easy to install and Im not 100% sure they are installed correctly. But whenever I plug my printer in found new hardware keeps popping up and as soon as I hit cancel it pops right back up. So Every time I want to use the printer which is all day I have to plug it back into my cpu and then unplug it when I am done. This has never happened with any other computers. Usually it is plug and play. But I whiped out my hard drive and started all over on this cpu and this is when the problem started. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Did you first install all other drivers for you make\model of PC after the fresh install but prior to attempting to install the printer?

Did you fully update the OS?

Well i use this program called Driver Magician which scans your computer then checks for the latest driver where possible. After you can find the drivers manually from the vendors website.

I`m not talking about just the drivers for the printer, but for the entire PC.

Go to start > Control Panel > System > Hardware tab > Device Manager. Are any ? or ! showing?

Regarding XP updates. start > All Programs > Windows Updates
