Question
I have a ten year old Dell desktop PC with XP on it and it's connected to a Dell 'all in one' A920 printer, I have the installation disc for it. When I get a new computer with Win 8.1 or even 10 when it comes out, would it be at all compatible with my old printer?  Thanks

Answer
probably not... most windows os since windows xp recognize windows drivers but if it does not work... it probably will not work... if you are really desperate to have this printer then share your printer from the old dell pc and you got a 50/50 shot of it working....
