    my whole computer went down and I had to reinstall everything all over again. | have tried to install the cd to reinstall the printer drivers using the MFL PRO SUITE INSTALLATION. it say's connect the USB cable to the PC and the machine. Switch the machine on. Please wait for the installation process to continue. It's been doing this for over one hour. I don't think it's working. I still can't print. Not sure what to do now. Please help me.. Thanks

For the drivers and manual, you can go to brother's website. Here's the link for your specific printer:

This should enable you to get up and running.

If you need something that is not in that group of downloads, you would need to contact Brother to order additional items.

You can try searching the web for the driver for that machine or call Brother directly at 1-800-284-4357 and order another cd

I have a brother MFC 440 cn printer. How can I

You can download the drivers from the Manufacturer Web Site. You do not mention which Operating System you have ie: Windows7, XP , Home Edition…

Go to the Manufacturer Web Site ie: or, etc, and choose your OS and download and install the drivers and software, then restart your computer.

The website will have the software "drivers" for you to download that your printer model's installation CD-ROM originally came with. This is necessary for your computer to recognize what kind of printer you're plugging in to it.

The printer's installation CD-ROM had the exact same drivers that you will be downloading so it will be like if you’re getting the installation CD-ROM again but only via the internet instead of having an actual CD-ROM so don't worry about it.

Some generations of people are terrified of using the internet for no other reason then FEAR of the unknown and that is not my problem. Just be brave.

If you find this information helpful, pls rate me.
Thanks and Good luck. .

clip_image001.gif Follow these step to install printer: turn on computer,,& printer and hook up together
clip_image001.gif click on "start
clip_image001.gif "then go to 'setting",
clip_image001.gif select " printer & fax,

MFC 420-CN Printer

At the brother site. Click Product Support Then Your language, which for me was US English. Then click MFC then scroll down about 2/3rds the page you will find the MFC 420 CN Click that, than click downloads. The drivers , utilities and firmware for the MFC are all there.
