I cannot install my dell A940 printer using the CD to my Toshiba with windows 7


Often, older printers do not have drivers for Windows 7. Mostly because the manufacturer decided that this printer is too old to develop new drivers. The only possible solution would be to use Windows Vista drivers. Vista drivers are similar to Windows 7 and have worked for me in the past.

Need software for Windows 7


Contact Dell for driver information regarding Windows 7. You might also contact Microsoft. You COULD also just try the windows XP driver. Windows 7 is more like XP than Vista, and you might get lucky.

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.

Driver for Dell A940 printer for my new Mac lap top


There is no mac driver for the Dell A940. What you could possibly do is, if you have a network, connect the printer to a windows PC, set it up as a print server and then connect to the print server from your mac.

Dell A940 smeared printing


Our Dell AIO A940 stopped printing black ink (it went throught the motions but he paper came out blank). Finally got it to print by selecting:

PRINT, PROPERTIES, PAPER SETUP, SPECIALTY PAPER, PHOTO/GLOSSY

Maybe it will work for you! Good luck!
