Dell 8250 with Dell 5110cn printer. Works great on my XP computer. Not so well on Win 7 Pro. The printer is installed as a PCL printer and as a PS printer.PS printer prints all Office 2007 applications. PCL will not print from any of them and completely kills word to where it no longer loads. I can switch the default over to PS and everything goes back to working correctly on its own. I have updated the print driver to Win 7 and updated the firmware but did not solve the problem.
