Problem with 'HP LaserJet 4M plus' printer
Posted on 1997-09-12
Using this printer under Win95 causes a problem in my case. I tried the "HP LaserJet 4M Plus" driver as the first choice. Printing using this driver can't be done even with a simple text file.
Then I tried using a "HP LaserJet 4/4M Plus PS" driver - and this works better with plain text files, but messes up the graphics. If then I adjust the settings a bit, if I'm lucky sometimes I get a fine printout of what I want.
The HP-printer is set up on a Compaq deskpro 2000 computer with Win95 which is working as a server. The printer is connected to the parallel port of the Compaq machine. It also has 6 mb of RAM which should be enough in this case.
I wonder if it's a Win95 printer driver problem or maybe simply it's a hardware problem (I did check cables etc.)
Does WinNT have better printer driver support?
