Try removing the printer cable reboot the laptop and start the install again. Don't connect the printer until told to and make sure it's switched on.

Run the installation without it attached, and when it gives you that message, attach the device. It should find it.

Trying to install with my PC which does not have Dell Printers listed in Installation Procedure.


Try installing the printer using the instructions located at...

A940 All-In-One Printer owners thread (W7)

You'll need to disconnect the printer. Download and run the patch(printer cleanup utility) until it prompts you to restart your computer.

Restart your computer.

Install the proper drivers. You'll get a message, the printer is not connected. Connect the printer at this time(powered on)

I believe when you say you want to install the program on your Sony laptop you mean that you want to set up the software for the printer.

I have a Dell A940 connected to my old Dell desktop, which I want to keep. How can I get it to print from my new laptop? I cannot find any USB ports on the printer to connect.


Specs state that it is USB - probably a "USB-B" connector. Anyway, how is it connected to your desktop? Surely you can take the USB lead from the printer out of the back of your desktop and plug it in your laptop? Am I missing something here? Specs don't say it is a "parallel" connector (unless it has both). If it has both (and you are using the parallel connection (big plug with many pins) on your desktop then there should be a USB-B socket on printer next to the big parallel socket.
