Re: Need software to install n1996 to my pc on xp
You need to install the drivers from this page. It's very simple, make sure you pick the according OS, which is Windows XP in your case. Then you need to enter the captcha code and select US or EU server to download from. If this is only partial to the software you need to use the N1996, feel free to respond for further assistance.

Unfortunately that means either your windows installation is corrupt and needs to be reinstalled or the hard drive has failed and needs to be replaced. If you do not have a windows xp disc you will need a technician to do this as you will not be able to without the disc. If you do have a disc however follow these steps.
First insert the windows XP disc into the drive Then when the machine says press any key to boot from CD press enter Wait for the windows setup to load completely Then highlight the windows XP partition it should be labeled windows XP Then hit R on the keyboard This will start a repair installation of windows
If the windows disc cannot find the hard drive or the repair does not completely unfortunately it means that the hard drive has failed and needs to be replaced.
In order to switch from Vista to XP, you will need to basically erase Vista and install XP.
I'm not exactly sure what you mean when you say you have XP rollback discs but, you will need an actual Windows XP installation disc and product key.
First make sure the BIOS in your pc is configured so that the first boot device is your cd /dvd drive.
Insert the XP cd in the cd /dvd drive and reboot the pc. Your pc should then boot from the cd and enter the text based portion of the XP setup program.
Press the F8 key to accept the licensing agreement and then wait for the setup program to load the files it will need to continue the installation of XP.
Once the necessary files are loaded the setup program will check for an existing installation of Windows and will identify the partition where Vista is installed and ask where you want to install XP.
This is where you want to pay close attention to the information provided on the screen. What you want to do is to delete the partition where Vista is installed and then create a new partition. This will remove Vista from your pc.
After the new partition has been created, you can then install XP onto it. The setup program will copy the files needed for XP to operate and will reboot your pc so it can enter the graphical portion of the setup program.
The graphical portion of the setup program is where you'll enter the product key and then the installation will continue installing the necessary files until it get finished.
Once completed, Vista will be gone and XP will be your operating system.
You need to download all the drivers installer files from manufacturer website first, and also all the software you want to install automatically with Windows. Then you build a Windows Xp boot CD with all the software setup embedded.
reboot you machine after cancelling all the installation set up details
Follow the instructions that follow as if you are installing Xp afresh (install, Accept terms,) then choose drive to install XP on (the one with current XP or else others) press delete (D) and follow the instruction to accept
After deleting choose Install XP and chose to format your disk the way you want Fast/Slow to FAT/NTFS
Please note formatting is deleting everything (EVERYTHING) on that disk preparing to store new information as a blank HDD i.e. you will lose everything on the disk viruses, bad stuff and all your valuable data on it
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.
