Downloading HL2140 printer drivers

I bought a second HL2140 printer and try to use it with the driver from the first unit. I then deleted all Brother software from computer, and tried to install new driver. Cant do it because it says the electronic signature is not correct. Also cant now even re-load my old driver form the first HL2140 printer.

2) Remove the cartridge/drum unit
3) Hold down front button until all lights come on

My brother hl2140 won't print. Yes - it is on and plug is secured. I have attached this printer to a new computer. I have gone into control panel and the hl shows that I have 7 documents ready to print. ...

Try this. Cancel all the documents that are waiting to be printed in the control panel. then delete the printer int the control panel. Click here to go to brothers website to download the correct driver for your operating system. Install the driver you downloaded. While installing it will ask you to plug the USB in and to make sure that the printer is on. When you plug the USB back in make sure that it is in a USB port that you have not plugged it into already. and you should be all set :) Best of luck to You :)
