Hardware drivers, then, are the language interpreter converting English to German and back again. If you’re updating new drivers from a manufacturer’s or print provider’s website, it’s a good idea to uninstall your current driver before downloading the new one. Then, determine the make and model of your printer so you can download the correct driver. The make and model can be found on the printer or in the documentation you received with your printer. Most modern computers have an update center that will notify you when you need to update your printer driver and will allow you to do so in a few quick clicks. Especially if your computer recently got its operating system updated, you may want to check your print driver before you try other troubleshooting techniques.
