The drivers should come inboxed with windows 7 on the official final versions. Later on the drivers also will be released on brother's homepage(s), but they usually take some time before uploading drivers to the homepage when new OS' are released. Try using the Add Printer Wizard and see if you're able to find the MFC-6490CW in the list of printers available.

Run the Brother Control Center. Click Device settings. Click where it says Inklevel.
A simpler way is Start-->All Programs-->Brother--> ...-->Status Monitor.
An icon will lodge itself on the tray (a printer). When icon is clicked on, the inklevels will show.
Hope it helps.

If it's under warranty you're in luck, you need a new printhead,LK3197001, around $80.00. I just replaced one yesterday in the shop for the same problem. I would call Brother customer service and see if they'll help cover the cost.

Usually that error means the encoder strip behind the carriage assembly is out of position or very dirty. Best to remove the top cover to correct, you might also find a scrap of paper either on the extreme right or left stopping the carriage from moving properly.
