Brother HL-2140 printer driver problem - won't load

Hi, i'm trying to set up and install my new brother HL-2140 laser printer using the installation Disk that i received with the printer. The problem is that the installation is interupted because it says Microsoft doesn't recognize the software and then i get a message "the file 'BH2140.PDD' on the brother laser printer driver disk is needed". Type the path where the file is located. But the file won't load. I've downloaded new driver from the web too. Same problem. I'm running Windows XP Pro.

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 recently installed the Brother HL-2140 to my computer, everything came through, but I am not able to print. Rose


Set your new HL-2140 as the default printer. Go to Control Panel, Click Printers and Scanners tab, and set your Brother HL-2140 as your default printer. You may have other printer as the default printer currently. Check your connections again. Connect it to another USB port as the current port might not be responding due to connection contact problem.
