I have an Acer Slim Desktop Machine - AX1200. I have a Brother 2040 Laser that I am trying to print to as well as an HP Oficejet 6110xi. I have been able to load the software onto the desktop and it installed the printers in the printer window - but jobs that I send to either printer never print. The status on the printer monitor is "printing" - but the job never prints on the printer.
I have updated the software from the Brother and HP websites and still have the same problem.
The crazy thing is it seems like it stopped working after an auto update. I used to print to both of these printers all the time both from the desktop and from wireless laptops through the desktop. It stopped working about 2 months ago.
If I had to guess it seems like the port connection is not correct or something. When I open the properties window for the Brother 2040 and then click on 'ports' - then properties window stops responding and I have to end the task via the Windows Task manager.
I can print to both of these printers from my XP and Vista laptops that I own when I connect them direct to the printer. I can also print to the Brother 2040 wireless through my US Robotics MAXg Router.
The problem seems to be specific to something with the ACER Desktop - Any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated.
