Windows 7: Brother HL-1230 driver problem

23 Dec 2009   #11

Windows 7


I had the same problem. Then I made a google serch and made a wild guess.
windows HL-1230 - Google Search

In the link there is a link to download a driver "...1230/1440..." So I tried runing the printer with the HL-1440 and I think it works fine for me. (I am using a Paralell to USB cable)

Good luck

I have set up a Brother HL-1230 on Windows 7 successfully.

Download the vista drivers from the Brother website. Unzip them and when you copme to install the printer browse to where you have unzipped the drivers
