Hi, My name is ***** ***** i will be assisting you
Unfortunately the Dell 944 printer is only compatible with windows XP and Windows Vista
It not compatible with Windows 7, 8,8.1 or 10 versions
As a result you will not be able to use this printer with windows 7 laptop as the driver software required for this printer to work on windows 7 has not been released by Dell itself
In such a case you can use this printer on a windows xp or vista computer.
For the Windows 7 laptop you would need to buy another printer
if you do not plan to buy another printer rightaway the only workaround would be to transfer the files you wish to print from windows 7 laptop to an xp or vista computer(if you have one) and then print from that computer
you may transfer the files using a flash drive or maybe attaching the files in your email and saving the email in draft and then opening your email on other computer
Let me know if you have any questions
