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 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-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.

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 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.

Error - Display Driver Amd Driver Has Stopped Responding

"display driver amd driver has stopped responding and has successfully recovered"that is the error i get when playing games for more than 2 seconds. I have all the latest drivers. I have gone through 3 different video cards 2 xfx 5770s and a pny 9800gtx+. They both had the problem. The problem goes away if i remove one stick of ram. Both sticks of ram work wonderfully, it is not the ram.

My temperatures on all my hardware is within a reasonable range, nothing is overheating i made this post to see, to hope. That someone may have an answer for me, but also to help notify microsoft that there is a problem.

Load Driver - A Required Cd/dvd Drive Driver Is Missing

I tried to do fresh install of windows 7 ultimate 64 bit version (pls don't recommend 32 bit, as 64 bit support is the main reason for me to switch to win7) on my home pc and installer is requesting for additional driver. I've seen similar problems in other forum threads, however responses does not really help me.

My hw configuration is:
Msi p35 platinum + q6600 + 4 gb ram + few sata hdds + nvidia geforse 9800 gtx, i've downloaded all latest drivers from msi site. I even manage to extract drivers, which require installation (such as all inf drivers, etc). However, windows installer is rejecting all drivers (it allows to select driver but throwing "no new driver found" message after i press "next" button).

So, here is summary of my biggest frustration:
1. Why windows 7 installer rejects all latest drivers?
2. Why windows 7 upgrade advisor is saying that all devices on my computer are windows 7 compatible (on 64 bit report)
3. Why windows 7 installer does not mention device which requires new driver?
4. If microsoft is planning to run qa on its customers i'd like to get my fees!

Apple Mobile Device Driver Issue With Mtp Device Driver

How do i get windows 7 to accept the 'apple mobile device driver' instead of the 'mtp device driver'? It is driving me nuts! Frequent itunes sync issues occurring. Suggestion is that windows is treating as a camera instead of ipod which makes sense given it asks me if i want to import pictures each time i connect the ipod. I need to get it to update driver from mtp to apple mobile but cannot get it to do it as it keeps saying no compatible driver in the file.

Hp 855c Driver

I have two hp 855c's sitting dormant now because hp refuses to write drivers for the win7 64-bit architecture. These printers when new many years ago cost in excess of $500 each. They use 45 and 41 ink cartridges which are not cheap, but the beauty is when you change the cartridge, you change the print head as well so the printer itself lasts a long time. These cartridges also last a long time because they are large capacity.

Perhaps these are the real reasons hp won't provide drivers for the american-made hp 855c any longer! I'm sure, like the rest of you, i'm not willing to give up on this great workhorse of a printer until it finally dies. When it does, the prospect of replacing it with something as adequate will not be possible. I've already lost a great umax scanner and other hardware and software in the name of progress and i'm getting tired of it!Here's my question.

I have followed this thread for some time and i don't see anyone with a readily available driver for download. I've read the talk and tried extracting the server 2003 64-bit driver and i have failed to do so and make it work. Does anyone have a workable color driver for the hp 855c that works with the 64-bit win7 we can all download? I already know about the 500 series driver as a workaround, but you are limited to only standard page printing, no cards, labels, etc.

Acpi Driver

I have a new laptop, custom built. I had xp pro and it was running fine. I used the sleep mode when the lid was closed and had no problem. I installed windows 7 ultimate and the sleep mode next to the shut down options is grayed out. I tried to go to the control panel and choose that option under power management and sleep mode is not listed as one of the options. What happened to sleep mode in windows 7? Hibernate takes much longer and it is just as quick to do a shut down and restart. I read something about an acpi driver but have not seen one to download. Any insight on this?

Is there a patch or any way that microsoft can help me with so that i can use my hp laserjet 4 with windows 7 (either 32- or 64-bit - i haven't ordered my new pc yet).

1. Hp laserjet 4p
2. Hp deskjet 990 cse
3. Canon bjc-4550

There is no driver available under "windows update" for any of the above. Any idea if and where i could get a third party driver?

Print Driver Is Not Installed

Driver doesn't work with my laserjet 2100. During the driver install, i used "windows update", it then locates the driver, and seemingly installs. Afterwards, when the printer is accessed, it errors. When i go into the printer console, it tells me ". Print driver is not installed. " I go back to device manager, and the driver is named, and seems that it is installed. Very frustrating. (I'm connecting to a printserver via wireless across to my local network to a print server). I have several other pc's running 2000, xp, and vista with no problems.

So in summary, after the driver is "installed", i get an error accessing the printer, and subsequently get an ". Driver not installed. " Error message during the troubleshooting period. Windows "troubleshooter" did not find any issues. Also, the printserver has a static ip address and i used that address in setting up the printer port. Now what?
