Hi, I would suggest you update your printer drivers, also look for the vista patch for your printer, try this, follow instructions exactly as written:

Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers(substitute your manufacturer in new name). Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop(watch for the light yellow bar at the top of window viewing pane, click on this and choose – download file - . Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Power on pc. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done.

Install dell old a940 printer on new acer aspire 5920 notebook with windows vista


I have the same problem but with an acer 5570Z. It used to work with the dell all-in-one, however, one day it just stopped working. It always says it cannot communicate with the printer. I've tried uninstalling it, and reinstalling it several times---no luck.

Printer all in one A940 from Dell


Vista is a brand spanking new OS. Your printer may need updated drivers to be compatable with vista. It should otherwise install automatically as it has in past. Go to dell website, and download the most recent driver (vista compatable) from them. It wouldn't hurt to see if cahnges in manual too and download it also.
