\015 I have download drivers from here nadf it still doesnt work.Do i have to have it on a special port. I am fed up with it. Do i just buy a diff printer\015

Answers :

First, go to the controll panel and find your printer in the add remove software icon, but make sure the printer IS connected when you do this!
\015\012Next, unplug the printer from the USB port and unplug the power to it from the wall 120V socket.
\015\012Next, reboot the computer with both the USB and the POWER cords unplugged.
\015\012 Next, when it is booted and operating, this time when it asks you, you wan't to SHUT OFF, not reboot.
\015\012Now unplug the computer's AC from the 120 V socket after it has shut off. Wait for 20 seconds before you plug it in again, and let it boot up as normally.
\015\012Next, run the install software you have downloaded assumung it is the correct version, and let it install, stil with the printer totaly unplugged.
\015\012 When the software asks you, a different window will now appear telling you to first plug in the Printer's USB cord, then the Power cord and turn it on. A window should now open that you havent seen before indicating that the intallation is proceeding with a progress indicator bar. Let it finish, then it will ask you if you wish to reboot now or later(MAKE SURE THAT ALL DVD'S OR CD'S ARE REMOVED FROM ALL DRIVES BEFORE REBOOTING), then reboot computer as you would normally
\015\012This is a bit time consuming, but it is the only way to do this properly, or it just will not take, I have been down this road with quite a few individuals including myself. It is those power right down's and unplugging and plugging in in this sequence that is the key to wiping the old CACHE FILES OUT so it will take.

MFC-5840CN printer working well with older Dell desktop and Windows XP 2000. Bought new Dell Inspiron 531 with Windows Vista and could not install the Brother printer. Robert Bender, [email protected]

I have an issue with a network printer. I have a Brother MFC 8440 connected to a HP laptop with Vista 64 via a US Robotics 9108 wireless router with a USB/printer port. The printer works connected directly to the laptop and previously worked via the wireless router. However, it has now stopped working. I get a ?printing? status in the printer window which eventually becomes ?Error ? Printing?. This began happening sometime after my attempt to tweak my system, so obviously I did something stupid.
