Re: Windows 7 - are you taking the leap?

Funny that on another forum that I frequent, others are having issues with their printers too. A few just retired their old printer and got a new one. Since mine is not that old (HL 4040Cn) I know that isn't it. I tried using the drivers from Brother's website, but I had a few issues with that so am using the default Win7 drivers for the 4040 and they work but I do loose some finess with these drivers. For both drivers, no wakeup is the problem. Maybe a Win7 bug with will eventually get patched. Haven't tried printing from my HP2110v All in one (by now the ink's probably dry anyway) but have scanned a few documents and that worked great.

Re: Windows 7 - are you taking the leap?

lyle,

i'd get the drivers from the manufacturer. that shld fix the problem with the sleep thing.

well, day two and i must say, this machine boots up a LOT faster now. i also like the big pane popup things on the bottom bar. seeing what's there in those panes is a nice feature, especially when it's the browser with more than one tab open. that's handy.

oh, and did i mention... win7 has a 'Godmode'. yup, godmode. read this: http://news.cnet.com/8301-13860_3-10423985-56.html

I did Craig; they were buggy. Have to admit that I haven't tried since a few weeks after installing Win7. Again, I so rarely print that when I do, it's not that much an issue to manually wake up the printer.
