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.

    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 new computer, Dell Inspiron 570 will not communicate with my old printer, Dell A940, All-in-One. How do I fix?


Hi Barbra,
Check all connections.
Have you installed the printer drivers?
Try un-installing and installing the printer drivers again.
Was there change in the operating system?[Say you were using windows xp and now you're using windows vista]You may need to install the driver that corresponds with your operating system.You can download the drivers from this link:www.siliconguide.com/drivers/device/583/

Hope this helps.Thanks!

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.

Restore window vista for acer aspire 5920


Hi Acer supply the restoration files in a hidden partition on your hard drive. If it is the same as mine try this. Start the pc, then while the Acer logo is showing, press ALT & F10 at the same time. Then just follow the instructions. Bear in mind that this will format your C drive so you should do a backup of any important data first. Hope this helps.
