    Help with Printer Error

    I have a Brother HL-2170W printer and I do not have the CD for it, as it was given tome by someone. I have installed the hardware, and tried to print a page, and I get an error. All it says is Print-Error. Please help! Thanks in advance.

    You need to try and print using driver installed automatically by Win8, if it fails then head on to manufacturer site bro, and locate driver. You can use win 7 driver if no 8 is available

    here you go, it seems win 8 drivers are available
