Question about Dell A940 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Just about every problem with every printer can be solved for a good while with these steps.That's because with years of experience, it's how I solve them, or know that it's tru;y a hardware problem.
ALMOST ALL PRINTER PROBLEMS ARE THE RESULT OF UPDATES OR A CHANGE OF OPERATING SYSTEMS. PEOPLE ALSO BELIEVE THAT THEY CAN JUST PLUG A PRINTER IN AND THE OPERATING SYSTEM WILL THEN SUPPLY ALL SOFTWARE AND DRIVERS NEEDED TO LET IT DO ALL IT'S FUNCTIONS
WRONG, WRONG, WRONG.
1. Uninstall the printer from the Control Panel NOWHERE ESLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
2, After re-starting the cpmputer (whether told to or not) holde down the Windows Logo key at bottom left and press the R key. A command line window opens. Type this
then hit enter
you temp file window magically appears. Delete EVERY FILE windows will let you and leave the rest
3. Go to the Support Site for your printer manufacturer and find your printer. LEARN
4. Download the largest and most extensive driver/software file for your printer using SAVE in the download window and selecting DESKTOP. WOW !!!!!!!!! You can find your download.
5. Double click that file and install your printer. I'M GOING TO ASSUME YOU HAVE DISCONNECTED YOUR PRINTER BEFORE YOU START THE INSTALL AND ONLY CONNECT IT WHEN YOU'RE TOLD TO DO SO.
6. Happily use your printer and all it's functions. NEVER USE A FUNCTION YOU'RE NOT FAMILIAR WITH BEFORE USING THE HELP MENU.
