Here is a link to the driver download page for your printer.
http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/dlf/download_top.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=hl2040_all

Go there, download the latest drivers for your operating system(s), and install the drivers.

Can you browse to the printers configuration page by entering it's IP address into a web browser? This will tell us if the printer is online or not.

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

Connect to network printer


Are you positive it is a HL 2040? The 2040 only has parallel and usb ports. The HL 2070 has the network port.

Anyway, if it is already being printed to on the network from other printers go to one of the other PC's and look under the printer properties tab, go to the ports tab and see which IP address has a checkmark in the box......that is the IP address you will need...

If it isn't already setup on another PC then you will need the setup CD that has the BRAdmin Professional Software.
