Question about HP LaserJet 4100n Printer
I have just purchased an immaculate 4100N. I have printed the test pages and they are perfect. It appears that the printer itself is working correctly.
I am using Vista Home Premium. I have purchased and installed a card with a parallel connection plug or socket at the back of the computer. I have connected the printer to the computer with a parellel cable. I have "installed" the printer in Windows and set it as the default printer. It shows up in Printers with a green tick.
I have tried printing a document from M/S Word. I checked that the 4100N was the selected printer. The document shows up as "Printing" in the printer dialogue. Unfortunately, nothing happens - the document doesn't print and the printer still shows as "Ready". Being a relative beginner, I don't have a clue as to what to do next. However, I searched Google and found this excellent site, which has already been added to my Bookmarks !!
The driver I installed came direct from the HP web site - HP Laserjet 4100 Series PCL6. I guess this is later than PCL5 ? How do I know for sure that I have even got the correct driver ? I did see references to a Universal driver - should I have gone for that. Am I supposed to set something in the Bios - I know how to open and view it but have never changed anything in it.
I'm hoping you can help me - it looks such a fantastic printer and I'm frustrated because I can't get it to work.
This page holds the Vista drivers.
Install them and give it a go again.
