    i have a new system which is the ultimate and although my brother
    printer will work, the system will lock up on start up. i have to
    unplug the usb on start up or the system will lock up on the dell logo

  2. configure the BIOS for the USB ports. See if another setting allows the
    boot. Most likely the new system is USB 2. If the printer is more than 5
    years old it most likely only supports USB 1 which might be the conflict.

    Also make sure you have all the USB patches for Vista. If you are running
    SP2 you should be good.

    As I remember, that MFP is an older device, and might have worked with
    outlook express and/or outlook. Thunderbird is also a possibility.
    I gave mine away over a year ago, due to various problems--
    Slow, uses too much ink at a high price, feeder misfeeds, and so forth.
