if you have user manual read it
do you have driver cd?
In most cases you will find that the Windows drivers found here are
"self-extracting" (.exe) archives. Click the desired file. When
prompted, we recommend setting the destination to your desktop. Create
a new folder and move the archive into it. Click the file, it will then
extract the software and related files inside of your new folder
automatically. Alternately you may extract or move these files to a
floppy disk. Please note that these files will only self-extract if
executed from Windows.
After extracting the files to a disk or a special directory, you
should look for the installation program which is usually called
"setup.exe" or "install.exe", click it to begin installation. If
neither of these files are present, you should look for a text file
containing special instructions called "Readme.txt" or something
Sometimes there is no installation program because you must install
your driver via the Windows "Add Printer" function. Instructions for
installing printers can be found in the Windows help file.
Our Macintosh Archives are also self-extracting archives. These
files should be downloaded and then executed. The installer will be
present on the desktop when done. Click the installer and follow the
instructions to install.
Types of Printer Drivers:
PCL5e Driver - Technically, the PCL5e has been superceded by PCL6,
however, we make this driver available because the layout of some
documents may be altered if they are originally created for a PCL5
compliant printer, but are printed using PCL6. PCL6 Driver - PCL6 is a
good general purpose text / graphics driver. Ideal for Spreadsheets,
Word Processing and Database printouts. It features superior graphics
handling, although graphically better than the PCL5e driver it's speed
is typically slower.
PS3 Driver - The Adobe Postscript Driver is generally superior to all,
but it requires a Postscript compatable printer and can be a little
more complex to install.
IPDL-C Driver - This is a color printer driver designed specifically for optimal perfomance under Windows.
