Question about Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer
I was attempting to install the printer driver software into a pc (Compaq Presario 2200, printer has been working fine with two Macs). This was the third computer to be configured with the printer. I was prompted to plug the printer cable into the new computer for a test which I did, then I clicked something on the screen related to hooking up the computer (I don't remember what exactly it said). After this click, The printer started spewing blank pages and then the red paper light flashed and now that is all it does and I can't print.
Sounds like a Driver issue. Try completely un-installing the drivers, and re downloading them before hooking up the printer. Something is conflicting with the printer and making it print spooler language. Maybe try downloading the drivers from the Manufactures website. Also What model Printer is it? and What lights are flashing?

Remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken . It is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the command , can be an issue with ink drying , can also be poor ink cartridge contacts.
