    Welcome to EightForums rick4371

    About compatibility try to resolve the driver in this tutorial Compatibility Mode - Use in Windows 8 or if the compatibility isn't working at all try to visit the manufacturer's website for their latest driver that support Windows 8 OS.

    Let us know once you have done the issue or not.

    I hope this may help.

    rick4371,

    If you have tried the information that Adamus suggested about Compatability mode in Windows 8 does not work then, you it may not work at all. Dell unfortunately, does not have any Windows 8 drivers for the A960 printer.

    Thank You,

    I tried it and it sheds some light on the problem but it did not work on my XEROX 6180 but maybe it will work on yours!
