Q:
How can I increase my print speed from my PC?
A:
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 B/W text print. The entire printing process includes the time it takes the PC to spool the job into the temporary directory. Creating a special 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 Printer setup, try setting the printer port to LPT1.DOS, disable fast print direct to port, and do not use print manager. Ensure that there is 150MB of free hard drive space available.
