I get a printer not activated error code-41 when I try to print. The problem started with a PDF printing.?

My printer does not show in the Control Panel/printer area so I cannot change preferences, but the default printer is Quicken PDF Printer. How can I change the default to my only printer which is a dell A922. I cannot change preference though normal means.

    Try simly taking you CD or downloading the drivers from DELL.COM and reinstall the driver anew, don't connect the printer at first if it's a "setup.exe" installer, if it's a non setup.exe, connect printer and use the Add printer button, then the try the autodetect button.

    Failing that go to device manager, right click My COmputer, Properties,, Hardware and then device manager.

    Locate printer

    click on it, press DELETE key, unplug USB lead

    Reboot PC, reconnect printer and install
