Q:
What driver should I use to print from Windows 95?
A:
Microsoft provides Windows 95 drivers on the Windows 95 installation CD or setup diskettes. Epson does not provide separate drivers for Windows 95.Epson laser printers emulate HP printers, so if the Epson printer model is not listed among the Windows driver setup choices, you need to use the appropriate HP printer driver.

Since you are using Windows 95, you should install the printer's emulation which is the HPLJ2 printer driver (32-bit).

Note: The Epson GQ-3500 laser printer requires the optional HP Laserjet Plus #5691A Identity Card for Windows compatibility.

There are two changes that you will make to this driver.

1. Go to the HPLJII properties section, go to the tab called, "GRAPHICS" select the option called, "DITHERING." Under this option select "ERROR DIFFUSION."

2. Under the tab called, "FONTS." Go to "TRUE TYPE FONTS." Select on this menu, the option called, "PRINT TRUE TYPE AS GRAPHICS."

3. Make sure that the port settings are set to LPT1, NORMAL, STANDARD, bi-directional or SPP only. The printer does not support ECP or EPP. Any changes to your printer port will have to be done in your system's BIOS. Refer to you Windows 95 manual or contact your computer vendor for assistance.
