This particular hardware component is a printing device that is based on the inkjet printing technology. The device driver allows for the placement of small ink droplets onto the printing media. The device driver for the HP Business Inkjet 1200 Series is responsible for the creation of precisely distanced ink dots to create the printed image. The distance of the placement of the dots usually range from 50 to 60 microns depending on the settings specified by the computer user. In terms of resolution this printing hardware component is capable of executing printing operations to as high as 1440 by 720 dots per inch. Since the print out resolution determines mainly the clarity and quality of the image, the higher resolution specified leads to a better printed output. In the case of printing hardware components, the quality of the output still remains dependent on the quality of the source.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The installation of the correct device driver also includes the extraction of printer diagnostic files that allows for the usage of tools and utilities. These support files are intended to provide the computer user with necessary troubleshooting support to gain a real time access to the actual status of the printing hardware. The HP Business Inkjet 1200 Series requires the presence of the manufacturer provided device driver in order to establish the two-way communication feature of the supported hardware component. Essentially this allows the host computer system to send the print commands to the supported hardware component. In return the printing device responds to the host computer user on the status of the printing job as well as the status of the other printing components like ink and paper levels. The device driver also allows the supported hardware component to alert the computer user when paper jams and similar problems arise. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and HP Business Inkjet 1200 Series errors before installing any driver updates.
