Set up Dell® Printer
What are the tips to set up Dell printer on your PC?
The Dell printer is an advanced printer. It allows creating hard copies of documents that exist in electronic form on the computer’s hard drive or a location accessed by the computer. As other peripherals, printers can be connected to the computer in various ways. Connection methods have traditionally included the printer cables, USB cables, Ethernet cables, and more recently, the wireless connections. The printers that are capable of connecting wirelessly are called wireless printers. A wireless printer has several advantages over the ordinary cable connected printer, as it can be placed farther away from the system with which it works, which creates centralized access for a printer which is shared by several people. In order to ensure the working of the printer you will need to install drivers.
The following are some of the tips to set up a Dell printer:

The Dell printer needs to be compatible with the Operating system. If you are using the latest version of Windows and you are trying to install an outdated driver, it might not work properly. In order to do this, you need to go through the ‘Read me’ file that is supplied with the drivers. The graphics card it supports and the compatible version of Windows might be specified in the file. Make sure that the drivers are appropriate.
The minimum system requirements need to be fulfilled for the driver to function properly. The minimum system requirements constitute the processor specification, hard disk space, graphics card etc. Minimum system requirements might play an important role in the installation if you have downgraded any hard ware in the computer like RAM. You need to refer the installation manual of the Dell printer to check the minimum system requirements.
