Brother HL-1230 driver problem
My friend got this rather old laser printer, but it is not working with Windows 7 x86.
Windows 7 x86 does have driver for it build in, and at boot it finds the printer, and "install" the driver. The printer is showing up in "printer and other devices", but when I then rightclick on the printericon and selecting printerproperties, it says, that there is no driver installed for this printer, and ask if it should install one. I click Yes, and it seems to install OK, I can then see that the printer is connected to the parrallel-port (LPT1, but when I try to click on "print testpage", it writes back "access denied", and after that it ask if Windows should bee lookig for a solution. I click yes, and it is testing, but find no errors. I close the window, and rightclick on the printericon again. And it is starting all over again. No printerdriver is installed for this printer, and then ask if it should install one.
I have tried to remove the printer, rebooted, and the printer is then found again, but no difference. I have downloaded the Vistadriver, and tried this but no difference.
Any ideas what I can try now? The driver that is buildin in Windows 7 is WHQL certified.

Yes, it is. Also in Device Manager it is shown as Brother HL - 1230.
Unfortuanly this printer does not have an USB port, only the LPT1: so I can't try USB or other.
BTW, when XP and Vista was installed on the same PC, there was no problem with this printer, so I guess that I don't have to mess around in BIOS to change settings for the parallel-port (EPP, DMA, aso)
pst ... is it your car on the picture? I wish I could afford such car, but Denmark have some of the most expencive cars in the world because of taxes. I did earlier own some older USA cars, a Camaro '79, Mustang 5.0 Cobra '80, and last a Pontiac Fiero V6 GT from '87. Sorry for off topic
