Brother HL-2140 printer has not passed logo testing for XP

Use printer Brother HL-2140 for nearly two years without problem. Recently started to receive the message "Printer not passed Windows Logo testing to verify its compatibility with Windows XP Pro." Tried to change the settings through "driver settings" and "security options". Printer works but I find annoying pop ups whenever I go to print something.

If you uninstall the current driver can change the warn to ignore, restart your computer and reinstall the current driver the popup should disappear.

This is the driver that is causing the popup.

  • My computer won't let me download a cd of new material. Said hardware has not passed windows logo testing.

    I want to add an adapter usb to my computer to watch movies on my TV. It came with the software, however the download access is denied.

    When you install the hardware in your computer (almost always), you must install a 'pilot', which is just software that tells your operating system (Windows, in your case) how to communicate with the hardware.

    Microsoft has a program she calls 'the logo test' which enables a company to label its products with the Windows logo.  Not every small manufacturer wants to go through the load of this test program, but if a company is trustworthy - and Trendnet is - then the fact that their products have not passed official testing procedures from Microsoft doesn't mean that their products will not work with Windows.  This is why you can usually ignore a message to the effect that a product has not passed Windows logo testing - if you also a pretty good reason to believe that the product will work.

    So just follow the instructions supplied with the adapter installation, put on the CD and install the software.  But the installation of this card is only the first part of your trip.

    Although I've not set my TV to watch streaming video from Netflix or Amazon, as I understand it, you need a TV that can be connected directly to the Internet.  In other words, you cannot download and save a copy of the video complete on your computer and then read it from your computer to the TV.  That's why's called it "streaming" video - you're not supposed to save a copy to your computer, but rather to look at the 'stream '.

    Thus, Amazon said, "the easiest way is to connect your TV to your router or modem broadband (DSL/Cable, for example) with an ethernet cable.»

    A lot of people with a connection broadband has a router, which has generally 4 Ethernet Sockets (and perhaps a point of both wireless access).  If you had one, you would just connect a "vacant" Ethernet between the TV and a cable to your router.  You, unfortunately, have a router with a single Ethernet Jack (I know you thought it as a modem, but it's almost certainly a modem and a router inside a box of Physics).  So, as you acknowledged, you don't connect your TV to the cable modem because it would need to disconnect your computer.

    You have two choices.

    You can buy a cheap Ethernet switch (e.g. this one) which would connect you to port on the back of the modem cable and then connect your computer and TV to two of the other ports on the switch.  This would probably work without having to make adjustments to configuration on your cable modem - but in the past, some customers wanted cable ISPS to pay extra for each computer connected to the modem cable and makes it a little difficult to so add connections on your own.  I don't think that is always the case, but because I don't have cable - especially not the same cable ISP like you - I don't know about you.

    Or you can buy a second Ethernet adapter of your computer (which is what you did) and then set up the "Internet connection sharing" (ICS) on your computer so that the TV can connect to the Internet through your computer.  Because you have already purchased this material, you probably want to set up ICS.

    Although there are many websites that explain how to configure ICS, because XP is becoming obsolete quickly, many of the older sites are more fully functional, including one who should have been better to show your situation (sharing a connection to local network to the Internet with another connection of LAN)

    Use the Network Setup Wizard.  Go to network connections (start > run > ncpa.cpl > OK) and click on "Set up a small business network or home."

    The 3rd screen looks like this-->

    Choose the first choice.  Even if your computer connects 'via a residential gateway"(your cable modem/router) the"other computers"(TV) will connect"through this computer."

    The next screen should look like this-->

    If you have correctly installed the USB adapter, you should see a line like the one that was highlighted in the image (it's your modem cable connection) and a second line describes your connection to the LAN USB.

    If the wizard does not recognize the USB adapter as a connection to the local network, it will not let you continue (click on the 'Next' button on this screenshot, where there is only one LAN connection, and you'll see what happens).

    Assuming that the wizard allows you to continue to do so.  Your "computer name" is already filled in. Do not change. You can add a description if you wish.  When you get to the screen 'file and printer sharing', you can disable this feature (you're not going to share files between your computer and the TV).

    Confirm on the summary screen that "Internet" is through your "Local network connection" and that the wizard correctly selected your USB adapter as the "connecting to your network" (this screen shot shows that the connection to the Local network is connected to 'your network' because the Dial-Up connection is connected to the Internet)--> (click on the scroll bar to) see the screen shot in all)

    When you complete the wizard, you should be able to connect your TV to your USB adapter and it should work (Yes, there is a lot of "desirable"; good luck).

  • The software you are installing has not passed windows logo testing to verify that it is compatible with windows xp

    When installing Football Manager 2011, when its almost finished, he said:

    "The software you are installing is not windows logo testing to verify that it is compatible with windows XP. Please contact your system administrator.
    I guess its because I have a really old laptop, but if someone could confirm this or help it would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks in advance


    Not his because that the game developer has not presented the program of Microsoft
    Logo program that charges a fee to certify programs. It may very well be if he is a large

    When you open the print queue, are shown print jobs as stuck there?  Just to make sure that the queue is cleaned, do the following:

    Open a command prompt window (start > run > cmd > OK)
    Type each of the following commands in the command prompt window and press ENTER after each line

    • net stop spooler
    • del "% windir%\system32\spool\PRINTERS\*.*" {answer Y when prompted}
    • net start spooler
    • output

    It's really only a shot in the water, but he could help and can not hurt to completely uninstall and reinstall the printer.  Follow the directions here:

  • Why Vista WMP can't play .asf files and why MS has not created a fix for this?

    Why Vista WMP can't play .asf files and why MS has not created a fix for this?

    Hi pdaamckechnie,

    The ASF Format (Advanced Systems) is the preferred Windows Media file format. With Windows Media Player, if the appropriate codecs are installed on your computer, you can play audio content, video content, or both, that is compressed with a wide variety of codecs and that is stored in an .asf file.

    You can check the link below for more information on the types of media files that supports Windows Media Player

  • Brother printer has not detected by Windows 7 64 bit.

    Brother DCP145C has not detected by Windows 7 64 bit. What port is recommended for the local printer - LPT1? Windows 7 should detect when the USB connection, but there is no activity. Similarly, the mode to scan on the printer is not responding to "check connection". Thank you.
    Checked the port LPT1 and COM on Device Manager and seem to work correctly. No updated driver needed updated port.

    Hello Richard,.

    If several USB devices are plug-and-play, printers need a print driver to work even on a USB port. I went to the Brother website and a research on the model of printer "DCP145C" increase any responses - are you sure the model number of the printer (not the part number)?

    You have a printer disk supplied with your printer? If you do, try to use that to install the print driver. As far as LPT1 goes, is for a printer with a parallel port (printer), and the COM ports are for those who use the ports series.

    Thus starts with the right model number and look for right print driver (or use the disc that came with the printer). Try and see if that solves the problem for you.

    Let me know how you fare.

    Kind regards


  • The software you are installing has not passed Windows logo testing to to verify its compatibility with Windows XP. (Tell me why this testing is important) IM TRYING TO INSTALL A M-AUDIO FAST TRACK PRO.

    I am installing a M-Audio Fast Track Pro. It is a USB Audio Interface that allows me to record music. In the included installation, it gave me instructions to update my driver, so it might work. I installed and ran. But when I clicked on the button run the message about Windows logo test appears. The minimum requirements for the installation of the M-Audio is Pentium III 500 MHz with 256 MB of RAM, Windows XP (SP2), Direct X 9.0 c and a USB port. I don't know if it's relevant to my question, but I'm also not how do I know if I have fulfilled these conditions. I'd appreciate any help you can provide. Please and thank you for your time.

    You can ask the manufacturer of the software with a signature digital signature that will pass the Windows logo test, but probably do you. Ignore this message and install when even if your computer meets the requirements.

    Hi, I have windows vista running on my system and I'm going to upgrade to windows 7, but my Dell 924 All In One printer is not compatiable with windows 7 and I would like to know how I can run this printer with 7. I checked Dell and did not find anything and I wonder if I can upgrade to 7 and save my vista drivers so I can use my printer, any help would be thank you very much

    Moved from Vista to install, upgrade and activate Forum.

  • Hard drive has not targeted reading Test


    I've known issues while playing PC games. It occurs at random, but always in the middle of games. I first thought it was a video card error, but made sure all drivers are up to date. I ran the diagnostic tool detects Dell system and found that my hard drive does not meet the test. What it means exactly what it means for my laptop / hard drive, and what are the steps I can take to find a solution?

    My laptop is a Dell XPS 15 (L502X) running Windows 7 and my drive is model WDC WD10JPVT.

    Thank you



    A question, what do you mean by 'transfer', only transfer the data files and folders, or by using Dell backup and recovery or what?

    Install the same WDC 1 TB, 2.5 ", 5400 RPM, 9.5 mm height, drive hard internal would be nice, or you could also install hard drive from a different manufacturer.

    Personally, I prefer the Western Digital drives.
