Go to the brother website and download the correct windows vista driver.
Unplug the printer from you laptop.
Install the driver. Wait for the driver to prompt you to plug in the printer and then you should be good to go.

Have you tried installing the driver software of Brother Printer DCP117C to your Laptop?, And still, it does not load or recognize your printer.? Then, Windows Vista
is not compatible with your printer. The solution to your
problem is to reformat your laptop to Windows XP or
buy a new printer compatible with Windows Vista.

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.

I have a brother all in one mfc 8460n and I just got a new apple laptop computer and installed windows 7 on it and i need to get my printer to work from my laptop. it works from the desktop computer but...


Wow, you've got two issues here. First of all is the Brother compatible with Apple and is it compatible with Windows 7?? Sounds like you need to go to brother's website and see if there are drivers for Apple and for Windows 7.

Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "BrotherSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the drivers.

My brother mfc 5840cn won't install on my new laptop which has windows 7 my old laptop was xp


Brother has not released a printer driver specifically for Windows 7 and this model. You can however use a basic printer driver if the Windows Update feature of your operating system is set to "automatic:"

To set Windows Update to automatic, perform the following: (if you know it already is set to automatic, you may skip these steps)

1) Click "Windows Icon" (Start button) on taskbar

2) From the "Search Programs and Files" box type "change device installation" and start search

3) Click "Change device installation settings" - the Device Installation Settings window opens

4) If it is not already selected, select "Yes, do this automatically (recommended)"

5) Click "Save changes"

Now you are ready to have Windows search for and install the generic printer driver for your model. Your computer must be connected to the internet in order to complete this installation.

Note: If you have previously connected the USB cable, disconnect it from the computer and printer for now.

1) Power on your printer

2) Now connect the USB cable to the back of the printer, then to a USB port on the back of your computer (not to a USB hub or keyboard port)

3) Windows should now automatically search for and install the latest driver for your printer.

4) The "Your devices are ready to use" message may come up on your screen upon completion. You may have to click "Close [X]" to close this window.

You should now have a basic driver installed for your model of printer.

My compaq Persario will only allow my program to print 1 copy to my Brother printer. I have unistalled, reinstalled, even did a total fresh install on the computer. I am running vist


Vista has drivers for many printers pre-installed, although they are basic and not fully featured. The trick is to just connect your printer to the PC/Laptop before installing any drivers and 'hope for the best'.

It might work if you 'remove' your printer from the list in 'printers', uninstall any of its software, reboot your machine and just plug the printer in. and if u want more technician support contact http://tinyurl.com/ldnuy2

I accidently deleted my internet drivers.


Ouch. You need to download all of your drivers again. You should have them on a CD that you got with the laptop, but you can get them off of dell.com
