Question about Brother MultiFunction Center MFC-440CN All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

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.

I would go first with Brother's support suggestion. You can always go back to the original BIOS setting.

Hi Miriam,

After looking closer at your printer pic, I have assumed it to be the Brother MFC-440, if so here is a link to the downloads you will need for it.

http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/ca/en/dlf/download_index.html?reg=us&c=ca&lang=en&prod=mfc440cn_all&type2=1&os=74&flang=English&dlid=

click on the link then click the "more information" link at the end of the Full Driver and Software line. It will take you to a page where you can download the required software for vista.

Booting


the following id taken from my own XP media centre laptop.

line 1 [boot loader]
line 2 timeout=30
line 3 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS
line 4 [operating systems]
line 5 multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Windows XP Media Center Edition" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect


ignore the "line 1,2,3 etc" I added them for clarity the formatting in this answer pane messes up the last line.

also before you get to edit the start up file make sure that the default operating system listed is the sae as line 5 starting from the "

hope this helps.
