    Default Printer drivers

    I have recently replaced an aging epson dot matrix printer with an HP 800 series and I am not able to ge the proper print format output.
    I am using A4 ver. 3 on a Pentium 133 machine under windows 95.
    Are there any drivers I must install or special commands I must send to A4 or the printer to correct this situation?

    You said that you are using Alpha4?
    Some of the newer printers may not be DOS compatiable.
    If the printer will work with DOS (try going to a DOS prompt and typing dir >LPT1) the you will have to get the DOS drivers from the Mfg.
    Might be time to move to Alpha5 or go back to an older printer.
