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

I', trying to install my old dell a940 printer on my new acer aspire 5920 notebook. i went to dell's website and downloaded the driver (i thought), but when i tried to download the firmware (whatever that is) i got a message saying it couldnt find a driver. When I try printing I get the message "windows cannot print due to a problem with the current printer setup".
I'm not real computer savy and could sure use some help.

    My Acer 5620 will no longer accept the Dell A940 printer disc.

    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. Does anyone know if the problem is with Acer or Dell?

My Acer Aspire 5920 touch pad keeps crashing! I dropped the laptop earlier this year, damaging the hdd so had to install a new hdd. OS and all drivers were reinstalled on new hdd with little problem except...


A good step to try would be to flash the bios..

Not knowing if you have vista or xp, i cant provide a link for the proper bios..

but i can give you a link to the acer site, where you can enter the information directly on the support page for the aspire 5920 to download the correct bos.

Crystal eye web cam not found on aspire 5920


Hi,

Acer aspire has inbuilt web camera and therefore will work only if the correct drivers are installed. Please uninstall the drivers first from control/panel/add remove programs. Next reboot the system and then go ahead with the installation.

Touch pad stopped working


I recommend you to uninstall and reinstall touchpad drivers to isolate the issue.
Press Windows key and R. Type devmgmt.msc in Run window and click on OK. Click on "+" sign beside Mice and other pointing devices in Device Manager.
Right click on Touchpad and select Uninstall.
You will be prompted to restart the computer.
Windows detects touchpad and the touchpad drivers will be reinstalled automatically.
You can also install touchpad drivers from your notebook support website.
You can reinstall the drivers from the below links:
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_5920.html
http://www.laptops-drivers.com/acer-notebooks/download-drivers-acer-aspire-5920-notebooks.html
However I suggest you to install the drivers by visiting the acer support website.
Also perform windows update.

How to solve Flickering problem of LCD


I have an Acer 5920G that's only 3 months old and it's screen started flickering. Updating or rolling back the graphics card driver made no difference. I then updated the Chipset driver from the Acer website. It hasn't flickered since!
The graphics info has to pass through the chipset so I assume the driver wasn't up to the job.
