I just bought a 1235cn dell printer and I cant get it installed in Windows 7. Does anyone have any ideas? I run the install and it looks like it installes correctly but when I try to print to the printer it says no printer is installed.
Thank you for using the Dell Community Forum.
Did you install a Windows 7 driver for this printer?
Dell has not released Windows-7 on any of its products yet...... and they typically don't release any drivers for a new O/S until that O/S has been released.
I have Windows 7 (64-bit) installed on one of my PC's and the 1235cn connected to my network. I originally tried Dell's 64-bit Vista print driver but it said that it was "not compatible with this Operating System" and would not install at all. I went to Samsung's website and downloaded the 64-bit printer driver for the CLX-3175FN since the 1235cn is basically the same All-In-One. Despite a warning stating that the driver might not be compatible with the printer, it worked as expected. I also tried installing the scanner driver and the Smart Panel Application but these did not install properly... I'm going to try a few more things when I get time but for now, at least, I can print...
