Dell A940f printer error

  1. OS I'm using is Windows 7 32-bit version plugged in an USB A940f printer got all drivers installed, nothing went wrong from my understanding then I went to print a Test Page and I got the following error:

    [Window Title]
    Printer Properties

    [Main Instruction]
    Test page failed to print. Would you like to view the print troubleshooter for assistance? Operation could not be completed (error 0x00000006).

    [Yes] [No]

    I said Yes, troubleshooter wasn't much help.

    Yup thats correct got the Windows VIsta 32-bit drivers and it worked. Now I have another problem , the ink I had just bought the printer from someone the inks are brand new but whenever I print something it either prints but with some blue links across the page or it prints some of the content. Thanks for your help :)

    Oh that's a gray area
    There are inks, and then there are inks
    Some ink is thicker, some are more runny, when you say "brand new" do you mean the original ink cartridge or a cheaper brand, or someone just topped them up with their ink :suspiciou
