The device driver for the Lexmark Optra E310 is essentially applicable to a number of printing devices that share a commonality. This commonality is essentially the implementation of the PostScript printing language which was developed to support high quality outputs especially for Portable Document Format files. The device driver provides the host computer system with a predictable output in terms of its quality. Normally when printing Portable Document Format or high quality image sources the printing hardware encounters errors due to problems in interpreting the commands of the page description language. This particular problem is minimized if not totally eliminated with the inclusion and implementation of PostScript emulation drivers. The emulation driver although not as excellent as the actual PostScript driver delivers an acceptable level of printing accuracy. This allows the Lexmark Optra E310 to cater to more demanding computing environments that require high quality print outputs.
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
Essentially the device driver support file for this particular hardware component is made up of several PostScript Printer Description files. These sets of support files are used by the manufacturer to explicitly define the range of feature sets that are supported by their specific printing device. The PostScript Printer Description file for the Lexmark Optra E310 also includes the PostScript commands that are activated once a printing task is sent by the host computer system. In this context the device driver is responsible for establishing a unified software based interface which covers all possible features and capabilities that the manufacturer has built into the supported hardware component. The command set normally includes the level of language supported as well as the capability of the device to generate colored outputs. The same PostScript codes define the type of color space that is used by default and the throughput capability of the printing hardware. The Language Level generally refers to the PostScript level supported by the Lexmark Optra E310. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Lexmark Optra E310 PS errors before installing any driver updates.
