Which model printer? Drivers for many (hundreds) of printers are built into Vista, use Start, Settings, Control Panel, Printers, Add Printer and see if your printer is listed. If not you can try downloading the drivers from HP's website here.

I have a DCP-130C printer/copier etc. The software FL-PRO SUITEis for Windows 98/98se/me/20000xp.My PC system is Vista. Can I obtain an updated CD Rom for my PC please/.


really doubtful. that's an older Brother printer, and the compatability above xp is questionable, to say the least. you can check www.brother.com under the model number, but it's not hopeful.

Can not get my printer to print from the computer


Unfurtunately you didnt tell us what pc system you run: Is it XP, Win2k or Vista?

The latter one wont be able to connect to your pc.
For the mfc 210c are only drivers for xp and win 2k, 98se avaiable.

You need another (newer) mfc (mfc240 or 235) if you run vista.

Anyway, if you run xp, download the aggrssive usb driver remover from the brother homepage and delete the drivers installed.

After a restart of the pc do have the mfc DISconnect from usb port (which must be one of the pc: NO hub!). Insert install disc and wait until pc software demands the connection to mfc. Connect now to pc usb. Let the software finish the installation. This should work for xp and win 2k/98se.

Obviously you have already tried to without success or else you would not be posting to this site. The answer is two-fold unfortunately. Sometimes manufactures cannot keep up with tech changes in OS and there is a driver update lag. If you did try to no avail, it means the install disc/driver is not updated enough to be compatable with vista. You have two choices. Run xp on your laptop instead of vista or go to Hewlett Packard web sit (google it) and go to download section. Download the update driver that is vista compatable if there is one available. Now, install the printer on you laptop using this new driver. Back it up on disc to avoid losing it and having to download it again.
