Question about Brother HL 1040 Laser Printer
I'm trying to install my HL1040 on my desktop computer with Windows XP. Brother's webite says the driver is built-in to this version of windows. Although it is listed on their driver selection when I try to add a new printer, I cannot get it to work and would appreciate some expert advise. I've tried all the simple stuff like unplugging, turning off, deleting and reloading. I don't know what else I can do. Thanks.

In Windows XP Pro...
Go to printers and faxes window. File-Server Properties. From dialog go to drivers then select the problem driver and pick Replace button. Select Yes to replace driver.
This has worked to solve the problem on the printer server machine but not on the other machines using the printer as a shared printer.

Go to this page on the Brother website:
Then click on Downloads, then drivers, windows xp home, English, Click on Search.
On the next page, where is says full driver and software package, click on more information.
Finally click on the download button and save the file to your desktop. After the download is done, run the program and that should install the driver properly. If the message comes up about compatibility, just continue it cause it should still go thru.
