Q:
How can I increase the print speed on my PC?
A:
The Troubleshooting Guide located in Chapter Six of the User's Manual gives detailed information regarding this issue. Use the guide as a reference to go over the Spool Manager setup. Color printing is a heavy draw on your CPU, memory, and hard disk, since color print jobs can produce 20-100 times as much data as a Black/White text print. The entire printing process includes the time it takes the PC to spool the job into the temporary directory. Creating a unique spool directory improves printing performance by eliminating the conflicts of spooling files with other Windows files. Also, maximizing your systems disk space and RAM will speed up the process. Lowering the print resolution and enabling "High Speed" in the driver will also help. In Control Panel, Printers, Connect option, disable "Fast Printing Direct to Port" and do not use Print Manager. Ensure that there is 150MB of free hard drive space available. Try to decrease the number of open applications running under Program Manager. Check the print options settings in "Printing Model/Options" screen. If MicroWeave is selected, printing will be much slower. To further increase print speed, do not select MicroWeave. Other ways to speed up printing include, turning off Halftoning, printing in monochrome instead of color, and printing in a lower resolution. Read the README file for more tips.
