Window XP Media Center Edition won't boot up if Brother MFC-440CN is connected.
My desktop running a windows XP media center edition does not boot up every time i restart it when i have my Brother MFC-440CN connected to it via 2.0 USB connection. After i restart my desktop it will just froze in the blue screen and wont go any further. I have to remove my MFC-440Cn first before i restart for my system to boot up and after my system is running thats when i replace the usb connection and continue on what im doing with my MFC-440CN. I called Brother support and they are telling to change something in the BIOS. As i am not quite a computer geek, i dont want to mess with any of the BIOS setting. Is there any easy fix on this? Please help.
