The IBM 4039 plus PS is a type of laser printer that allows processed data to be transferred onto a print media. Unlike inkjet printers which rely on ink droplets to transfer the information on the print media laser printers make use of static electricity. In this context the device driver for this particular hardware component allows it to make use of the static electricity as a type of temporary adhesive that works in conjunction with a photoreceptor or what is commonly called a drum primarily because of its shape. The main drum assembly is composed of materials that are considered as photoconductive and therefore are capable of discharging light protons. As this drum assembly rotates within the printer structure a laser beam is aimed on the surface allowing it to draw the characters or images as types of electrical patterns. Once the patterns are set the drum is coated with positively charged toners and is then rolled over the print media creating the final output page. The toner is basically a fine black powdery substance that clings to the drum assembly.
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
Taking all these into context, one of the most important roles of the printer driver for the IBM 4039 plus PS is to allow for the initiation and subsequent completion of the printing process without necessarily concerning the computer user with the technical details. This means that the device driver takes care of all the technical detail in the background including the physical process of printing onto the print media. The device driver once properly installed into the host computer system is responsible for the maintenance of the communication layer among the operating system platform, installed font types, and the hardware component. This communication infrastructure is responsible for ensuring that signals are properly sent from the requesting software application to minimize the instances of printing errors. With the advances in printing technology the device driver also provides the necessary alerts and notifications to the computer user on the status not only of the printing job but of the printer resources as well. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and IBM 4039 plus PS errors before installing any driver updates.
