I'm having trouble repairing my printer. I have a Dell Dimension 2400 Desktop, with an All in One A940 printer, I run Windows XP with SP2.
I've been having a lot of virus issues lately, I was deleting a couple of things in my task manager, one of them was spoolsv.exe. That is when my printer stopped working, I got it back, and then more trouble followed. I'd click Print and get the message "connection not detected", it told me to set printer to a USB port, and it's been set on LPT1 since I got it. So, I switched it to USB. Now I'm getting a message "communication not available". I don't know what else to do. I've tried reinstalling the driver, didn't help.
I've had this system since mid March of last year, is it possible that I'm going to have to replace it under warranty, or can it be fixed?
Any help would be appreciated!
