correct print driver for dell 5100cn on a windows 7 32-bit system

I can print just fine with notepad and a print test page.  But when I open word 2010 and type a document "i typed test word print" and then hit print it says connecting to printer and then I get an error
error i'm getting when trying to print
I can ping the printer and again i can print test pages and use notepad.

The driver I'm currently using is
Dell_Laser-Printer-5100CN_A05_R239000.exe from dell's site

Please help thanks!

bbimis--That is the latest driver (issued in 2009).  Uninstall and reinstall.

If no help, troubleshoot
