Windows 7: Can't run virtualization

Can't run virtualization

First off, I have a Dell Photo All-In-One Printer 922 which runs on XP - not Vista or 7.

I went here: Download Windows XP Mode

Step 2 said to go here: Download details: HAV Detection Tool
..so I did.

I opened up the HAV Detection Tool - User Guide.mht and havdetectiontool.exe

I got the "This computer does not have hardware-assisted virtualization" message from havdetectiontool.exe and according to the HAV Detection Tool - User Guide.mht, it means I can't have virtualization or whatever.

Umm.. I have a fairly decent computer. You can check my specs (on the bottom left of this post). What gives? Should I just say F-that and download the XP mode and Virtual PC?

Also, my copy of Windows is activated and all that good stuff.

1. When you install the drivers, did you try installing in compatibility mode?
right click driver installerv -> troubleshoot compatibility -> troubleshoot program -> this program worked in earlier versions of windows... -> windows xp (SP2) -> start program?

3. Also, virtulizing may be disabled by the BIOS.

Hi. Thanks for responding. I did that. I got the printer to "set up" and print a test page but when I try to print something in Microsoft Word 2007, for example, I go to print and it shows my printer and I press print but it says there's a problem. I tried in Notepad too. I pressed print and it shows that my printer is selected, but nothing happens. And when I look at the printer screen, it says there's nothing in the queue. I think I'm just gonna get a new printer in the near future. I'm due for one but I wish I could still use this one to its full potential. The Dell printer stuff aren't in the Programs menu either. Usually from there I could go to the scanner and scan stuff and preview it and such, etc.

Try doing a repair.
at the very minimum you should see the software in the start menu.

here's the driver/application/patch for vista/7 32-bit
you shouldn't need compatibility mode.

Just for your info, if your pc does not have hardware virtualization, you may want to try our VMLite XP Mode, it does very similar thing as Microsoft XP Mode, but much faster. It's also free.

Sweet. I got it working. I couldn't do "troubleshoot compatibility" with the link you provided me, but I downloaded the drivers from here: Download Dell Photo All-In-One Printer 922 A04 Driver for Windows XP - Softpedia and I got a folder named Dell922 in C: but when I also plug in the printer, it says installing drivers and such and it makes a folder in C:\Program Files (x86) called Dell Photo AIO Printer 922. Both those folders have drivers in it. I don't wanna mess with any of it cuz I just got it working perfectly. What do you think?

But I still don't see the "All-In-One Center" where I can preview scanned images and stuff.

Actually, scratch all that. I f*cked it up. It was starting to mess with my spooler and I had to do a system restore cuz it kept turning off even after manually turning it on. I just removed everything (after trying multiple times to get it right) and went to MMC and removed it completely. I could try again from scratch and it might work, but eh, not worth all the trouble. I'm just gonna get a new one that's made for Windows 7 and that's wireless so my sister and dad can print wirelessly.

the driver and the application are two different downloads.

that being said, the wireless multifunction printers are awesome and I'm looking to get one.
from what I can tell wireless scanning only requires the web browser on some models, and otherwise you don't need to dig out the computer cable all the time.

Do you have any recommendations for what to get? Brand? Model? Features? Etc.
