Brother printing problem with Windows 7

  U10 20:27 25 Sep 2010

I have a Brother 1440 connected to an XP machine. When I tried to print with a Windows 7 PC connected to the home network, it printed rubbish. I didn't have problems with Vista before I upgraded. Any ideas? The Brother website don't seem to have any new XP drivers.

Surely you need Windows 7 drivers ?
Assuming you installed it as a network printer , try removing all printer drivers from the W7 machine , re-add the printer through the network , if it finds the printer but no drivers you can use Windows update to look for them instead , or download the latest 7 drivers from the Brother website .
