Hi in my school I am looking for the Dell 1720 DN laser printer driver as I want to connect it in the staff room but I lost the CD....

I look all over the Dell site and can't seem to get it.....

I type in the service tag and they tell me no drivers for that...

Anyone can get this for me and if you can upload it in mediafire or somewhere where I can get it???

Thanks a lot....

Select PS (PostScript) driver if you want to print from Adobe software such as Photoshop.

Supports up to 4K resolution!

The VS192 2-Port 4K DisplayPort Splitter is perfect for anyone who needs to send one source of DisplayPort high definition video to two or four DisplayPort displays. The VS192 can split and also expand DisplayPort audio/video signal on two or four DisplayPort monitors.

What is Host-Based Printing?
The host-based software uses the computer's resources to process print commands and rasterizing data, taking advantage of the computer's memory and processing power.
Host-Based printing is a cost-effective printing technology that enables printers to utilize the processing power and memory resources of the PC (or the Host).

The main difference is that HBP uses the computer to process the print job, and PS and PCL type printing the printer does the processing.

For adobe reader printing you should be able to use the HBP driver fine.

From the link I've posted here;

http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/04/Product/dell-1720dn

Just put in your operating system and download it from there or alternatively any of the other links provided by the posters above.

Thanks

Mike

Use the HBP driver and then check that you can print everything that you would need to normally print - would be my recommendation.
