Have you tried downloading and installing the printer driver provided by HP on their site?
That is an older printer, but being that it supports postscript printing you should be able to get it to print in color.

On second thought, have you been able to get this printer to print in color using postscript at all? (From any kind of workstation O/S?)  I ask because I seem to recall dificulties with printing color postscript images with limited amounts of printer memory.

Let me know.

Dear JRHelgeson, I have tried to find one from HP site but I could not find any.
There is only one driver named MP100EN.exe for AutoCad 13/14 for 95/NT
Could you please tell me where I can find your mentioned driver.
Thank you so much for your kindness.

As I commented above, I have found the needed driver from one of my
friend, not from
as your recommended.
Anyway thank you for your concern.
