Question about Brother HL 2140 Laser Printer

2 Answers

I don't have a disk - can I download driver for HL-2140?

Is there anywhere I can get original drivers online? Disk has gone AWOL. Ive tried the driver detective, but it seems to be only updates and you need an original driver already.

Brother HL 2140 printer very slow printing.


It sounds like you haven't completely removed the old print driver. To do so, you must take the following steps:

  1. Open Printers by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then clicking Printers.
  2. Right-click the printer that you want to remove, and then click Delete.
    If you can't delete the printer, right-click it again, click Run as administrator, and then click Delete. 18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b.png If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Another way or removing the printer driver is this:

1. Delete the printer from control panel -> printers
2. Open Services.msc and stop and start the Print Spooler service
3. Open Print Management(Open command prompt, type in printmanagement.msc or type print management in to the start menu search box)
4. In Custom Filters -> All Drivers right click the printer driver you want to remove and select Remove Driver Package
5. Install new printer driver.

Now that you've removed the printer driver, you can go ahead and manually install the new printer driver.

To manually install you must follow the prompts carefully.
Follow the instructions in this link:
http://www.vista4beginners.com/How-to-install-local-printer

At the install the printer driver section, choose have disk and locate the printer driver that you want to be associated with this printer you are installing.

This should solve your problem.
