PC cannot find software for my Dell Laser 1700 printer

Hi
 
I purchased a refurb Dell 1700 laser printer and my Pc which is about 5 years old does not have any Dell models in the list. I tried to install the drivers but it cannot copy some of the files needed. I do not have a copy of the installation CD. Is there a way to get a copy of the CD that goes with that printer to complete installation?
 
Thanks in advance

ramsyanks:

You fail to list enough information for others to properly help you. Assuming some things:

1. You have an internet connection and your PC is 5 years old. Does that mean you're running Windows, MAC or Linux? The drivers for each are different.

2. Did you try downloading drivers from http://support.dell.com ?

Please note that I'm not picking on you and I'll be more than happy to help you if you post more info.
