    Re: Types of printers which can be installed on the windows computer

    You can install printers on the windows computer. There are various types of printers that the computer can work with like wired and wireless. To install any kind of the printer on the windows computer, the first step is to install the software on the computer. Once the software is installed, it can be detected by the computer when connected. To connect a wired printer, you need to connect the printer cable to the slot on the computer for the printer. Then you need to power up the printer to start printing. If it is a wireless printer, both the devices must be connected to the single wireless network and the printer needs to be powered up.

    In order to install a printer to your system you need to to have the printer and the driver for the printer.
    there are two types of printers wired and wireless(not common).
    In wired printers there is a physical wired connection between the system and the printer.
    Go to device manager and install the printer driver,
    Connect the cable to the printer and check the driver is automatically connecting to the printer.

    Re: Types of printers which can be installed on the windows computer

    Printer - A device that prints text or illustrations on paper. There are many different types of printers. In terms of the technology utilized, printers fall into the following categories: Dot matrix: A type of impact printer that produces characters and illustrations by striking pins against an ink ribbon to print closely spaced dots in the appropriate shape.

    Dot-matrix printers are relatively expensive and do not produce high-quality output. However, they can print to multi-page forms (that is, carbon copies), something laser and ink-jet printers cannot do. Ink-jet: A type of printer that works by spraying ionized ink at a sheet of paper. Magnetized plates in the ink's path direct the ink onto the paper in the desired shapes.

    Ink-jet printers are capable of producing high quality print approaching that produced by laser printers. A typical ink-jet printer provides a resolution of 600 dots per inch, although some newer models offer higher resolutions

    .Laser: A type of printer that utilizes a laser beam to produce an image on a drum. The light of the laser alters the electrical charge on the drum wherever it hits. The drum is then rolled through a reservoir of toner, which is picked up by the charged portions of the drum. Finally, the toner is transferred to the paper through a combination of heat and pressure. This is also the way copy machines work.

    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]2. Conditioning or Charging To make the drum receptive to new images, it must be charged. The EP drum is given a negative charge by the primary corona wire around -600 and -1000 volts[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]3. Writing - A laser beam is use to write to the EP drum causing dots on the drum to lose some of the negative charge
    and become relatively positive charge
    [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]4. Developing - A toner is transferred from the toner cylinder to the EP drum by attracting the area of the drum that has a
    Relative positive charge
    [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]5. Transferring - The transfer corona wire puts a highly positive charge on the paper once the paper has a positive charge
    the negatively charge toner particle leaps from the drum into the paper

    Re: Types of printers which can be installed on the windows computer

    Hi,

    You can buy printers from the market printers those are available and the comes in different make-functionality and price.

    Basically there are three types of printers available in the market.

    1. Dot Matrix Printer. 2. Ink Jet Printer 3. Laser Printer.

    Dot Matrix Printers are of older technology and cheaper in price and usage cost. They are very cheap in maintanance too. But print quality is pathetic and graphical reproduction is absolutely non existant.

    InkJet is the latest and a middle path, Costly in maintanance, low in price but high in printing quality and very portable.

    Laser is the best among the lot, high priced highest quality, high in maintaining cost but print the best among all.

    Take your decision.

    Thanks.
