First install the driver disk that came with your printer (you should be able to just put the disk in the cd/dvd drive and the program will start to install automatically. Make sure the printer cable is unplugged. Then just follow the prompts for the program. The program will tell you when to plug in the cable. If you are unsure of where to plug in the cable, lift the scanner bed (not the little door where you put the document to be scanned) which is located on the right side underneath the document plate. On the right side closest to you, you will see a connection point shaped like the small end of your usb cable that came with the printer. Plug it in then route the cable in the slot that runs front to back and out from under the scanner top. Plug the flat end into your computer and you should be good to go. I hope this answers your question...

Re boot the computer with ,( wired or wireless printer?), the printer cable in the USB port in the laptop/desktop, the windows version you have will ID the device and try to load a driver, or Go to printer in the start menu and ADD a PRINTER the software will search for the attached printer. OR use the software that came with the printer, load into the Dell and follow the instructions.

Try using the Brother Clean up utility (at the brother website support section in Downloads and uninstall the existing software and drivers. Then reinstall the whole mess and see what happens.

I assume of course, that you have verified that the USB cable you are using is in good condition, and that you have run the Installation diagnostics that came with the printer, to see what info is showing there.
