While other PC print well on this printer, mine print blank pages. I have downloaded the driver on the Dell support site choosing 1710n model but when I launch the setup the name of the driver is 1720dn. Is there a difference between 1710n driver and 1720dn ?(Forums)
Thanks Printster, for your help here! The port is a Dell Enhanced TCP/IP Port, but its properties don't all come up due to the commmunications problem. Bidirectional support is enabled. The driver is the Dell Laser Printer 1720dn.
Hi, What is the quality and speed difference between postscript and the HBP driver for a Dell Laser Printer 1720dn? Thanks, John(Forums)
Thanks. Prior to my original post, I searched the forums for "1720dn" and found some hits, but nothing too noteworthy. I further narrowed down my search to "1720dn Vista" and got zero hits. Hence my general question about Vista driver support for Dell printers in general.

I have a Dell 1920dn and had problems getting a driver. Â I went to the Dell Support site and downloaded a Dell 1700n driver for WIN9x/NT and it works just fine (but don't expect duplexing). Â Good Luck, TallPaul
Thanks for the suggestion, PudgyOne. I looked into that but don't have the AMD USB Audio Driver Filter on my XPS One. And Llynster, I tried stopping and starting the print spooler but that didn't help.

FYI, the problem was the Dell driver! I've substitued the Dell drivers by a standard driver for printer and now the printing error not get anymore the server freeze.
I just tried deleting both setups for that printer. I disconnected the printer, inserted the CD and loaded the drivers, rebooted the system and plugged in the printer. Still the same print problem. BTW, it loaded the PS3 driver.
