The driver software for the HP Laserjet 2300 printer can be downloaded from the discs that come with the machine. If they aren't there or have been mislaid, then one can download the drivers, and any updates, direct from the download center on the HP website.

How Does a Printer Driver Do?

One of the important things to running a printer is not actually the printer itself. It is a software application often referred to as the printer driver. The printer driver is in fact the piece of software that allows a printer to communicate with a computer. Without the driver, the computer will not be able to send printing instructions to the printer. This driver software acts as an intermediary. When you press print on a program on your computer, it is the driver that is able to convert this information into a format that the printer is able to understand. The printer then receives this information from the driver through a link between the printer and computer either via a physical wire or through a network. It then prints the pages as instructed. A printer driver, however, will not work for every single computer-printer setup. All different brands and models of printers have their own specific driver software that is usually incompatible with other printers. In fact, most printer drivers use specific computer languages to prevent them from working with other brands. Each driver is also operating system specific. For example, a driver designed for Windows will not work on a Mac. The printer driver will also perform functions other than converting data. It can give commands that determine how the printer operates. For example, a driver can help set a printer�s margins, determine pagination, and complete a number of other tasks that allow a printer to operate as expected. The driver will also likely be designed to deliver messages from the printer back to the computer. For example, if the level of ink in the printer�s cartridges is low, the driver will allow the printer to alert the user of that computer of that fact. The driver should also be able to alert that user or any errors that occur during the printing process. Despite the incompatibility of printer drivers with printers they were not designed for, many operating systems such as Windows come with a number of printer drivers from different manufactures preinstalled. If one hooks up a printer related to one of theses drivers, that user should be able to start printing right away without having to install any new software.

Why printer queue and priter driver are required?

A printer driver is a bit of software that instructs a printer how to work. Without such a driver, the printer may not work, or print rubbish. A print queue forms when a print job is sent to the printer that is already printing. Once the first print job has been completed, the second print job is then printed.

How do I fix garbled print jobs?

The fix is almost always to install the correct printer driver software (if you can find it). Sometimes when you connect a new Plug and Play compatible printer that the OS does not know (e.g. the printer is a newly introduced model and you have an older computer and OS) the OS will pick either a "generic printer driver" or a printer driver for an older "similar" printer. Such printer drivers may not in fact be compatible with the new printer and garble the printing. Hopefully the printer came with a printer driver installation CD or DVD, or the manufacturer's website provides downloads of their latest printer drivers for the printer.

They bought you a canon printer and it did not come with a CD Rom you want to know how to download it so that you can use your printer?

look on the www.canon.com website under support & drivers section. you should be able to do a search for the printer model you require and select which windows version you are using and download the correct driver. plug the power and usb cables into the printer and computer and then you can run the software you downloaded. more than likely, the computer will find the printer automatically when you plug all the cables in, then you can tell the computer when it asks where you saved the download and the software will install.
