Ask a question about windows 7

My new Sony Laptop with windows 7 home will not print via usb to my dell printer since it is only windows xp compatible. can I download window 7 drivers on my dell desktop in order to get printer to recognize sony laptop or will the windows 7 mess up my computer that is already running windows xp? I guess I don't understand drivers. I'm thinking that they are stored for better use of computers sharing a printer...idk

  1. drivers can not be installed onto the printer. the only option you would have would be to install the XP printer drivers onto the windows 7 laptop using XP compatibility mode.
