Needing XP Pro SP2 Drivers for Dell A940 All In One Printer

Posted on 2006-05-06

Hi Everyone:

       A friend of mine upgraded from Windows XP Home Edition to Windows XP Pro SP2 edition tonight.  With this upgrade came some hardware driver issues which need resolving.  For instance, within Device Manager there is a category called Other Devices with entries corresponding to yellow exclamation points.  Two of these entries are Dell A940 and Scan.  Now, these two conflicting entries are making reference to the Dell A940 All In One Printer.  

        Since these hardware conflicts became noticeable only when the upgrade was performed, I naturally assume a Windows XP Pro SP2 driver update is in order.  With this point in mind, I am interested in any direct download link for the drivers for the Dell A940 All In One Printer.  

        Any help regarding this post will be deeply appreciated.  I look forward to hearing from everyone regarding this question.
