Update Your Printer Driver For High Quality Printing Job

November 29th, 2011 No comments

A driver is a word used for describing the software that your computer needs for your printer to work correctly. By downloading the printer on your computer, you can change the settings such as the print quality and paper size, for any print job that you want to do. With the help of the internet, you can easily find and download the printer driver that you need for high quality prints.

Failing to update your printer driver can cause headaches in the future, especially if the file is already outdated or if your driver becomes corrupted, causing your PC to crash. By updating your printer driver, you are sure that bugs are fixed, stability is improved, and new features are included. This will be especially helpful if you have installed a new version of OS or if you are currently experiencing printing problems.

How to discover outdated printer driver

  • Click the Start button and type in devices and printers in the search box to bring you to the ‘Devices and Printers’ panel. This will show you a complete list of the available printers on your computer’s system
  • If your available printer shows a yellow exclamation point icon beside it, then it would be a good idea to download new drivers already
Update your outdated driver
  • Confirm your printer’s model by checking the printer itself, or by checking in the ‘Devices and Printers’ panel
  • Go to the official website of your printer manufacturer and click the Support and Drivers option. This will direct you to the Download drivers and softwareoption. Type in the name and model number of your printer on the search bar, and press enter
  • Select your current operating system to download the compatible driver for your printer. Wait for a few minutes until download is complete.

Besides making sure that your printer driver is updated, you also need to constantly update your computer drivers. This can be done easier if you have a tool that will check for automatic updates, and download the software for you. Interested? Click on the link for free download.

 

 


 

Monochrome Printer Driver Update

August 1st, 2011 No comments

Batch file conversions are a particularly taxing job. This is especially true if files are in different formats or if they contain images. Wouldn’t emails, documents scans and electronic fax messages become easier to store, find, and process if they’ve all been saved into a uniform image size and file format?

This is what the Monochrome printer driver from Black Ice Software can provide. It is a powerful tool which facilitates quick conversions of large batches of graphics-heavy TIFF files. With it, you can easily rotate images, correct their color, or even assign new image sizes. The program can access images or texts from any Windows application so long as the latter supports printing as well. The best thing about it is that the program has a complementary Resource Tool Kit which can give more advanced users optimum control and customization. This allows you to configure the program to work alongside a software application with similar function.

The update version 13.22 was rolled out just recently, August 1, 2011, and is compatible with Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. It has a 15-day free trial period where outputs will contain Black Ice’s watermarks. The full-feature version is at $39.99.

Troubleshooting Printer Compatibility Issues on Windows XP

June 11th, 2011 No comments

No matter how far information technology has evolved, we are still far from achieving the goal of a completely paperless office or work environment. If anything, all these advances have done is increase the volume of paper necessary to convey this new wealth of information. Because of this, a printer is a must have for any business that needs to create and hold hard copies of the information that they handle, and more creative and artistic people need them in order to better share their work. Getting a printer to work with your computer should be a simple thing, but more and more Windows XP users have been experiencing problems getting their brand new printers up and running on their systems.

The Issue of Age

Windows XP has been out for one decade now, but about 40% of computers around the world still use it. Despite its loyal following and Microsoft’s attempts to keep the venerable operating system up to date, it is definitely beginning to show its age in the areas of functionality, security, and most especially, hardware compatibility. Simply put, Windows XP is having a harder and harder time catching up with all the latest devices, peripherals, and gadgets. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that its millions of users need to upgrade right now. Fortunately, there are a few things you can try to get your shiny new hardware to work with Windows XP.

Updating XP

Since its initial release ten years ago, Microsoft has released three Service Packs and a number of other smaller updates for Windows XP. These updates address mainly issues of security and functionality, but they also add the latest generic drivers for newer devices and peripherals. If you’re not sure what version of Windows XP your computer is running, you can simply visit Microsoft’s webpage here to grab the latest updates.

Verify Hardware Compatibility

Some devices simply won’t work with certain operating systems, no matter what you try. For this reason, it’s strongly advised that you make sure that the device you’re purchasing is compatible with your OS before you even order it. This simple step is often overlooked by most computer users, and has led to many a headache. To find out whether or not your printer of choice can run with Windows XP, just visit this webpage of Microsoft’s full list of XP-compatible hardware.

Update Your Drivers

Drivers are the software that allow your PC to interface with the hardware you’re installing. For this reason every printer or device that can be attached to a PC usually comes with a CD that contains these crucial drivers. Sometimes, the drivers that ship with your printer might be out of date or outright defective. In cases like these, you should visit the manufacturer’s website, locate the appropriate drivers, download them, and then install them on your PC.

While these steps are pretty straightforward, they can be quite a hassle to do, especially if you’re in a rush just to get your printer working. For times like these, we recommend our very own Driver Scan Tool that can automatically detect if your hardware drivers are compatible and up to date. Don’t spend another minute on driver issues.
