The printer only works for windoze.  This is because the printer has no real processing capabilities.  It is wholly operated by the OS.  Get a new printer.

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

Hope this helps.Thanks!

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.
