I have a Dell Insperion laptop with Windows 2000 and Office XP Professional. At my desk at work, I use a LaserJet 1100. At home, I have a Brother MFL Pro Printer which is also a fax machine. Getting printer drivers for the Brother - that Window's 2000 will allow - seems to be some sort of a problem. As it is now, when I want to use my laptop at home, I have to make the Brother the default printer and have the printer cable plugged in before I boot up the computer. IF I do this, and say my prayers - a lot of the time, I will get all sorts of looking for driver messages but. . . eventually, it will print. Sometimes, it will not cooperate at all. Do you know how I can get drivers for the Brother that Windows will recognize and install? (If I am not asking the right question. . please forgive me. I know how to turn a computer on, click on icons and PRAY.) All the other printers I have to use work just fine but the Brother is mine and I would like to get it working with this computer. (works wonderfully with a computer that has Windows 98 on it) I am putting this into the Software category but if it belongs somewhere else, could one of you guys tell me?

Hiya schmooz-ga, You can download the printer driver directly from the Brother website, at http://www.brother.com/E-ftp/info/mfc/mfc4550plus.html If this doesn't work, there are several other sites which have the same driver available for free download. http://www.printer-drivers.com/drivers/3/3150.htm or http://www.sensiblethings.com/driver_download/brother/mfc.html All these sites recommend you uninstall the existing Brother drivers before reinstalling, and the Brother site has clear instructions on how do do this. http://www.brother.com/E-ftp/uninstall.htm Hope this fixes your dilemma!

Thanks for the help. I had called Brother and they told me that drivers for my printer were not supported by or through Windows 2000. Also, thanx for the tip about un-installing the old drivers. It was very hard but works great now!!!!
