Question about Brother HL 1440 Laser Printer
Posted on Jun 12, 2008
Why would you need WinZIP? Zip handling is built into Windows XP. The driver from Brother is a Self-extracting archive, meaning you don't need third-party software to open it, just double-click it and select a destination for the file extraction. Then, when you open this particular extracted folder, you'll see many different folders named Disk1, Disk2, and so on. Open the folder Disk1, double-click the SETUP icon, and there you go - the driver installation starts.
The driver file you need is right here: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/dlf/dlf/000000/002400/dlf002431.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=hl1440_all&type2=1&os=7&flang=4&dlid=dlf002431
Just COPY & PASTE that address into your browser's address bar and Voila! click DOWNLOAD.
