2 Acer netbook XP problems...

My Acer netbook w/XP has changed.

1. It now does some kind of scan or something when it returns from stand-by
or hibernate or shutdown, etc.  A line appears that shows a propeller made
of | / - \ spinning, preceding by a few "....".  The time I have to wait is
annoying, but does not seem to cause a problem.

2.  I am having trouble installing printers.  My Brother MFC-420CN is on
it's own Ethernet wire, and other W7 laptops see it, but my XP netbook

TIA, Paul

If your Brother printer is like my HP, Win 7 will find it automatically on
the network. XP requires a driver install before it will even look.
