Enhanced Printing Performance and User-Friendly Operation for Windows
The dedicated Printer driver for Microsoft Windows 95/98/Me, Windows NT 4.0 and
Windows 2000/XP are available on the CD-ROM supplied with your Printer. You can easily
install them into your Windows system using our installer program. The driver supports our
unique compression mode to enhance printing speed in Windows applications and allows
you to choose various Printer settings including toner save mode, custom paper size, sleep
mode, gray scale adjustment, resolution, water mark and many layout functions. You can
easily setup these print options through the Printer Setup Menu.
Printer Status Monitor with Bi-directional Parallel Interface (HL-5040/5050/5070N only)
The Printer driver can Monitor the status of your Printer using bi-directional parallel
communications. IEEE-1284 bi-directional parallel Printer cable is recommended.
The Printer status Monitor program can show the current status of your Printer. When printing,
the animated dialog box appears on your computer screen to show the current printing
process. If an error occurs, a dialog box will appear to let you know what to correct. If you
have turned on the interactive Help (Windows only) you can get visual guidance on your PC
screen on the actions in the event of certain Printer errors.
Quick Print Setup
The Quick Print Setup is a convenient utility to allow you to make changes to frequently used
driver settings easily without having to open the Printer properties selection box every time. It
is launched automatically when this Printer driver is selected. You can change the settings by
clicking on the icon with the right Mouse button.
Enhanced Memory Management
The Printer provides its own data compression technology in its Printer hardware and the
supplied Printer driver software, which can automatically compress graphic data and font data
efficiently into the printer’s memory. You can avoid memory errors and print most full page
600 dpi graphic and text data, including large fonts, with the standard Printer memory.
