Question about Brother HL 2140 Laser Printer
Windows 98 is not compatible with this unit. I could not find info that it was compatible. I went as far to contact brother directly and they gave me the same info, it is not compatible. There are rarely any new units that you can find that are compatible with windows 98. My suggestion would be to upgrade to windows xp or vista. Tiger Direct has great prices for windows OEM versions, service pack 2 is going for 90 bucks. They are a reputable store/online warehouse. They always deliver on time and i never had damages. Let me know if you need more info
