Question about Computers & Internet

I have a new PC with Windows 7 and an existing Brother HL-2040. The driver I have got is only for Windows 200 and XP. The driver is not accepted in my new PC so I can not use my laser-printer of Brother. I called all your officisl services centers and also my sales shop Office Works in Perth. Nobody could help me with a disk or a hint where I can download a new driver. Only updates are offered. since my new PC has had no printer installed, I could not update. Please help me to get a driver for Windows 2007 and tell me where I can pay for this. Wolfgang (University BW

    I got a new PC (compaq Pressario) which has installed Windows 7. I also have since 2 years a Brother printer HL-2040 together with a driver disk for installation Brother HL-2040 on my former PC. It worked well. But now, on the new PC the disk is not accepted by Windows 7. So I cannot connect the new PC with my existent Brother printer and cannot print. Please give me a hint how to find a disk or downloading facility for this problem. But please no downloads for updating of the printer, because there is no printer on the PC up to now.

    To solution No 2:

    Thanks for your second answer which let me at least know that there is no solution at the moment and Brother is working in developping a driver for Windows& / HL-2040.

    Please let me know, when the wanted driver of Brother/Windows 7 is available.

    Thanks again

Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

Windows 7 was released on October 22, 2009 and caught many manufacturer's off guard. Brother is in the process of developing all drivers for Windows 7 including the one for your printer. I pulled the information from their website here and when it is available, it will be released for download.

(PDF format of schedule)

You may want to bookmark this site and check back, based on the schedule, to download the compatible drivers.

I have lost the installation CD for my Brother HL-2040 printer can you please tell me how to install it


Hello.

From this link http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/dlf/download_top.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=hl2040_all

Select your operating system (Windows XP, etc.), your language and download and install the driver (software to run your printer).

If necessary, disconnect the printer cable from your PC, restart your PC, reconnect the cable and install the driver.

Hope this helps.

Are brother hl 2040 printers compatible with windows 7 - 32bit operating system


I find that windows 7 prefers to download it's own drivers.

If you installed any drivers, uninstall them, unplug the USB of the printer and reboot.
When you get back into windows plug back in the USB cable to your printer
You will see "found new hardware" This time you want to let Windows to go online and download the drivers for you.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
Thank you
