Dell with XP and Ricoh C2050 printer
Posted on 2010-09-07
I've recently had to rebuild a Dell vostro with XP SP3 and connect it up to a Ricoh C2050 ulti function printer.
I'm using the Ricoh PCL6 driver , fresh from the Ricoh site.
The problem is that any request to print, in word for example, takes ages to process. This wasn't the case before the rebuild and is not the case for other workgroup memebers , it is localised to this machine. If for example you want to see the properties of the printer it can take 30 secs for the properties screen to come through , after i might add a little screen pops saying the computer is accesssing the printer !.
Is there any harm in using a PCL5 printer driver , what's the difference i should really ask.
And any suggestions as to why this networked printer is so slow to print
