That is a very good possibility. Most printers that are no longer being manufactured are not supported by vista due to the makers are no longer writting the drivers.

I want to install it to my system

You need to download the driver for the HL-1430 printer for your HL 1030 model which can be found here:

this link provides information for Vista PCs - additional information can be obtained from the Brother website if required.

Once downloaded you will need to install the printer using the "Add a printer" wizard which can be found in the Control Panel (under printers).

I cannott find compatable drivers for my brother hl 1230 using windows 7

Hi Simon,

The reason that you cannot find Windows 7 drivers for your printer is simply because they don't exist!

Despite the fact that Windows 7 is quite popular and has been out for a month (a lot longer for those who have beta tested like me), not everyone has created drivers that are made for this OS (operating system).

I recommend that you try the Vista drivers, either the regular ones or the 64-bit one, depending on whether or not you're using Windows 7 x64 or x86. Here's a link to the drivers. In the event that it doesn't work, really your only other option is to try the XP drivers.

Good Luck :)

Connecting printer to Windows Vista Laptop

I have a new HP laptop with Vista Home OS, and I just installed my HL-1440 with a driver that was installed automatically in the "New Printer" procedure in Windows, and it works perfectly.
