Brother Printer Mfc 420cn Pro Suite Will Not Work

Brother multi-function printer mfc-420cn pro suite will not work with windows 7 and brother says they have no fix! I can print only and but no longer scan my documents to pdf and brother customer service support says they do not have windows 7 drivers for this software so just have to wait and see or buy a new printer. Mine is only 2 years old so hoping someone out there has an idea or if having same problem, maybe if enough people complain, they will come up with the fix.

Brother Mfc-8440 Scanner Driver Win 7 X64

I installed a new pc with windows 7. My printer is a brother mfc-8440 connected via usb. Brother does not have windows 7 drivers for this mfc, but the built-in windows 7 printer driver works ok. Printing works just fine. My problrem has to do with scanning. Windows 7 also has a built-in scanner (imaging) driver. However, i have 2 problems with it:a) it won't scan to pdf. I can overcome this with a 3rd party scanner utility (pdf converter, paperport, etc). This one i'm ok with since 3rd party software works. B) it seems the driver does not include legal size paper (8. 5 x 14) in the list of supported paper sizes. I'm unable to scan a legal size document using the windows 7 utility (or 3rd party software). Since the problem is present in both programs, i'm guessing it has to do with the windows 7 driver.

I found a suggestion to use the xp x64 driver from brother and install it under compatibility mode. I attempted this, but get an error message from brother that says "this driver is meant for a different os version. "Please help while this is the only problem i'm having with the move from an old xp machine to windows 7, it's a major hassle because i frequently need to scan legal size docs and send them in pdf format (as you can guess, i work in a legal office).

Brother Print Driver Problem

Am trying to install the control center for a brother mfc-9440cn, but keeps giving error message - says need to install windows (r) service pack. Have searched microsoft for such a thing and appears not to exist. Have tried the other recommendation here: all programs. Windows updates - updated other things but does not address this issue. Does (r) service pack exist? Does someone have a link where this exact service pack can be downloaded? It is ridiculous how much time gets wasted trying to fix new software so i can actually do my work.microsoft - 1) provide a quality product 2) provide some accessible customer support.

Brother Hl 820 Driver Issue

I have a brother hl-820 printer and have recently upgraded to windows 7. With windows vista, i was able to select and use the brother hl-720 driver which comes preloaded in the windows 'install a printer' driver list in the printer installation wizard. I am given to believe this is a result of brother's work with microsoft to ensure ongoing compatibility.

Unfortunately, the same trick does not seem to work with windows 7, which states that it is unable to install the 'kernal printer driver' and that i should contact the manufacture, brother, who of course do not support the hl-820s anymore.

Does anyone know if there is anyway to get this printer working again?

Brother Mfc-8840d Printer Not Compatible

I have just installed windows 7 (32-bit) on my father's laptop computer. When i installed the software for his brother mfc-8840d printer, windows told me the software was not compatible. Checked brother's website and indeed, the brother mfc pro suite software is not compatible with windows 7. No problem, windows still installed the scanner driver and i can scan with the unit. However, the files created are in tif format. Windows only allows for saving in a few formats, including tif. Is there a way to configure the scanning feature in windows to save as a pdf file?

Programs Sewing Machine Brother 6000

Do you think its possible for a sewing machine to get a software problem? Obviously if its ran by software it could get a software problem. Brother 6000 isn't mainstream? Who would even bother except a rouge phd to invent the demise of sewing machine. Personal very personal very very personal. I fell in love with the quilt sewing embroidery machine the first time i saw the brother 4500 beautiful , computer operated, perfect. Then i got scared what if it had a computer problem and its difficult to get parts and service for a 2003 hp compac? Not many people own or even know what a brother 6000 is, or know how to fix it.

I am looking for a quilt embroidery machine if you have any experience and most have some computer operation to them. My sewing machine is not computer operated its just a regular singer. Then again i don't have to worry about a sewing machine virus and the issues of fixing it and worrying about it. The brother 6000 is about 10 thousand dollars , lota money for a sewing machine. In fact way to much for me. I just wonder if computer operated sewing machines get viruses? What is a good yet inexpensive one?

Brother Mfc 255cw Color Printer Problem

We've just purchased a new computer running windows 7. We attached our printer, it was detected and immediately configured. (It's a brother mfc -255cw color printer). We've used it for several weeks with no problems. Now, suddenly, it won't print and says it's because of a problem with the current printer setup (although as far as i can tell it hasn't changed at all).

I went to check the properties and got an error message and i tried to "find" the printer but got the error message: the active directory domain service was unavailable. (Although according to the computer control panel it is the currently installed, default printer). What's going on?

Brother Mfc-425cn Printer Problem To Print On Network

I do have a brother mfc-425cn printer and i cannot get it to print as network printer (which was no problem with windows xp). When installing windows 7 drivers, it has been found correctly and without problems in the network. The whole installation process worked fine. However the printer does not react, when i want to print s. Th. So i did the windows 7 troubleshoot. The following 2 problems are found but cannot be fixed automatically:

1)"printer brother mfc-425 usb printer cannot be contacted over the network" - "not fixed".

2) "problem with wireless adapter or access point" - "detected"

As i said the printer was found in the network without any problems during installation. I also have no problems to access other computers or the router in the network. Internet access is fine. So the whole network seems to work just fine, just the printer does not respond.

Brother Hl-2140 - Windows Can't Find A Suitable Driver

I have a brother hl-2140 connected to my windows vista-32 business pc via usb. Prints great. It is shared. I have a second windows vista-32 business pc and installed the shared printer and it prints fine. I have a laptop with windows 7-64 home premium and i'm trying to install the shared printer. I have downloaded all current drivers via brother's website and used both disks that came with the printer (all os's on one disk and windows 7 as a separate disk). I've tried installing all versions of drivers to be sure. I've plugged the printer directly into the laptop and the printer prints fine.

When trying to install the shared printer, i physically point the laptop to the correct *. Inf file, but it always says that "windows could not find a suitable driver. " Just as a side note, brother states on their site that the hl-2140 is windows 7 compatible. I have seen many posts that contains 7 and xp issues. But i have not found any post for 7-64 to vista-32 sharing.

Win7 Will Not Detect Second Monitor

I have a pc running windows 7 professional and windows vista ultimate with a dual boot setup. I have two screens pluged into an nvidia gts 8800 video card. The first screen is an hp 22" lcd which is plugged directly into one of the two dvi outputs on the video card. The second screen is a sharp 52", 1080p hdtv which is plugged into the second dvi port on the video card via an hdmi cable plugged into a hdmi to dvi adapter.

Both monitors work perfectly when i boot to windows vista but when i boot to windows 7 the 52" screen is not recognized at all. If i switch the cords plugged into the video card the 52" will work and the 22" will not be detected.

Cannot Detect Wireless Connection

I have a wireless modem set up and other laptops in my house can get a signal but my own personal laptop cannot. The wireless network list on my computer shows that the network is detected and that i am connected. Despite this, the signal comes in and out and tends to be very weak. The signal on the bottom right shows full bars so the signal is supposedly very good but somehow i cannot get on the internet. I have tried multiple websites and the message that internet explorer cannot open the web page comes up.

Win7 Does Not Detect External Monitor

I have just upgraded to win7 home premium 32 on a sony vaio laptop. Previously i was running vista business. I was happily using an lg1512s monitor plugged through the vaio docking station.
Post the win 7 install, my laptop does not recognize the external monitor. I have gone on to the control panel all control panel items-display-screen resolution and the multiple screen dialogue does not appear.
 
I have with no success:

· Clicked detect¯ in the control panelall control panel itemsdisplayscreen resolution
· Clicked the f7 monitor on/off button.
· Plugged the monitor directly into the vaio (i.e. Not through the docking station)
· Used windows-x and tried to use the mobility centre to connect the external monitor.

Meanwhile i have plugged the monitor into another laptop i use that is running vista home and the monitor lights up so i know the monitor and the cables are ok. The problem is that win7 is not seeing the external monitor. Any ideas?

Applications Cannot Detect Dvd Drive

I am having trouble with my cdvd burner, as no applications on my computer recognize the drive at all. The hardware was working fine and was displayed under a list of burners in applications like cyberlink dvd, nero, windows iso burner, windows media player; now it is not displayed at all. I constantly get error messages that "no burners were detected" or to "connect a burner and restart the [windows media] player. " The drive does however appear in windows explorer and i am able to play dvd's from it (although i believe these are stored in a temporary cache).

I have already attempted to reinstall the driver from "device manager dvd/cd-rom drives hp dvd rw ad-7581s ata device" but this had failed. I have also run the online "playing and burning cds dvds and bds" troubleshooted from microsoft; it finds no problems, probably since it did not actually burn any data to test it. I've also downloaded the mats_run. Dvd.exe which supposedly fixes the problem automatically, this just downloaded massive amounts of data and went to the above troubleshooter. I am not able to burn dvds and no applications even detect i can.

Macbook Does Not Detect Wireless Network

Window 7 installed on macbook - does not detect any wireless network/connection at all only on windows os system side. I have installed windows 7 on my new macbook, so my macbook operate both on apple macos and windows os. However, my windows os side does not detect any wireless network at all. When i switch back to apple os, there is no problem connecting to the internet and there is no connection problem at all.

But for some reason, my windows 7 does not detect or show any available wireless network. I use linksys wrt-110, and i don't think it is my router problem because it works perfectly on apple macos system. Does anybody have any solution? I am not very tech-savvy, i.e. , I need step-by-step explanation as to how to tackle this.

System Wont Detect Cds

After performing a clean install of windows 7 pro my computer wont detect music cds. It will play movies with its corresponding audio. But it wont play regular music cds originals, burned or from any file extension of music cds it wont just detect that the cd is loaded in the cd rom tray.

I already tried  windows trouble shouting and nothing. Checked file extension association and everything appears to be in order. I also ran drm. Also perform cd, dvd region check. Lastly i also perform a system check from the windows command prompt and found nothing either.

Anybody have any other ideas?

Cannot Detect 2nd Hdmi Tv Display

I had a vga display as my primary display and a hdtv display via a hdmi cable as a second display hooked up to my computer. This worked fine until a month ago. When at first the picture showed only a zoomed in top left hand corner of the screen on my hdtv with all psychedelic colours the first thing i tried was a roll back of the updates but this had no effect, as dis changing the cable. Then when i changed the graphics card windows 7 stopped being able to 'detect' my second display with either card.

Any ideas or solutions would be most helpful?

Win 7 Does Not Detect Sdhc Memory Card

Just got a new hp elitebook 6930p computer with integrated sd card reader with ricoh r/rl/5c476(ii) card bus controller. I have used my 4gb verbatim sdhc memory cards successfully in my old xp machine (hp nc 4-thousand something) with a sdhc update from microsoft.

The problem is that windows 7 does not detect my sdhc card when inserted. I suspected something similar what i needed to do in xp, but i am unable to find new drivers or similar sw patches.

I tried to uninstall smart card reader from windows device manager along with all usb controllers (as instructed in an article in this forum), then rebooting (thus updating usb stack), but without luck.

I also got usbdeview sw to see what is happening. It seems that that device (usb 2. 0 flash disk usb device) is not connected, drive letter seems fine (g:, no conflicts), device is enabled (and it does not help if i disable and then enable it again). What i should do to have windows 7 support sdhc cards?

Language Auto Detect When Installing Programs

I have a windows 7 - 64-bit home premium edition on a new computer (hp). Language and regional settings are set for danish and denmark. I have installed the chrome browser, gimp and vlc media player. The installation completed without problems except for one thing: menus etc. Are in swedish! Why is that?
 
According to gimp help files, that program uses auto detect to figure out which language to use but get it wrong! What is going on? It seems to me, that there must be an error in the handling of language settings in windows 7. Why else would three programs in a row get their settings wrong?
 
Any ideas?

Win 7 Does Not Detect Dual Core, But Bios Does

Windows 7 pro does not detect dual core, but bios and intel processor id tool does; have tried everything. Have a e6600 dual core, evga 680i board, 4 gb ddr26400, gtx260, 7 pro upgraded from vista. I have looked all over and tried almost everything. Bios detects dual core as it allows me to enable or disable the second one, and intel proc id tool detects 2 cores. However, windows 7, and any other programs like cpuz and core temp report one core. Under device manager only one core is listed under processors, and under computer it says acpi x64 pc or something instead of acpi multiprocessor.

Msconfig only shows one core to be enabled/disabled. Have done repair install, full install, reformat install and still only one core shows. Tried easybcd with core=0 to try and reset, and nothing. Bios is up to date (p33), reset bios settings and even escd reset. This all started after power cut out randomly. At first, windows would not boot, but did mbr repair using a 7 home disc and it booted. Few min later comp felt sluggish so looked at cpu usage and task manager and found out about only one core detected. One graph/cpu is already selected as it is the only option.

Win7 Doesn't Detect Usb Mouse

I have a simple problem that i can't seem to fix. I have been using the same usb mouse for about a year now, and recently windows has stopped detecting it on startup. It is easy to fix, i simply unplug and replug it back in and windows recognizes it and the mouse works fine. But for some reason windows has stopped detecting it on startup.

I have tried different usb ports, i have tried unplugging all other usb devices and leaving just the mouse, and i have updated my drivers. It detects my usb keyboard and external hard drive every time, but windows has stopped detecting my mouse on startup. Suggestions?

Win 7 Fails To Detect 2nd Monitor On Boot

Clean install of win7 with ati radeon hd4550 pci express graphics card. Running a mitsubishi diamond plus 100e monitor and a sony multiscan 500ps monitor, both off the 4550 card. On boot, the primary (mitsubishi) monitor is detected and the second (sony) monitor is not. I can open the control panel for screen resolution and see both monitors correctly identified. If i select extend these displays, windows re-labels the sony monitor as generic pnp and the sony monitor then activates and works properly.

As soon as i shut down the computer and reboot, the sony monitor is again undetected and i have to go through the whole process again. I have deleted all ati drivers and reinstalled current catalyst drivers (8. 732, 5/26/2010), as well as current motherboard drivers. (Motherboard is gigabyte ma790gp-ds4h). Integrated graphics card on motherboard is currently disabled, although this made no difference to the problem.
