Try re-setting the camera? On the D40 it is 'Menu' scroll down one to Custom Setting Menu (a pencil) and click reset 'ok' yes 'ok' this worked for me.

I had the same problem. My issue was with all my lenses. I solved it by going to the menu and selecting the custom setting menu (pencil icon). Then from the right menu select the AE-L/AF-L and press OK. Then make sure it is set on AE/AF Lock. Presto...all my lenses worked on auto-focus.

Nice lens too... I would take a good look at the electrical contacts on that lens. If OTHER lenses are truly working correctly, you have eliminated the camera as the cause and need to look at that specific lens. The first thing that I would try is taking a pencil eraser and rubbing all of the contacts with it. This will often clean the contacts of dirt and grime and clear off any "coating" that may have accumulated over the metal portion of the contacts. Barring this, I would send the lens to Nikon for servicing. It is a high percision device and taking it apart yourself is NOT recommended.

AF lenses normally have a subtle grinding noise when used. Make sure your AF switch is turned on. If this still does not work, you may wanna consider bringing it in for repair

I had a similar problem with one that I bought. and come to find out, the gears internally in the lens where broken. I would return the lens, and get another one. Also when you go to buy a lens for your camera make sure that you bring the camera with you to test the zoom before you buy it.
Just FYI you also need to remember that with a smaller zoom your focus time will be slower, and it will take getting use to, unlike the larger zooms, you are trying to focus on a large area but being very detailed at the same time.
