The Tally T2140 is a serial impact dot matrix printing device which makes use of a ribbon cartridge to transfer data to a print media. The device driver for this printing hardware like most printers is partly responsible for controlling the behavior of the printer head which receives the information from the host computer system. Since it is designed as a dot matrix printer it represents printed information in the form of multiple dots which are arranged based on the chosen resolution of the computer user. This means that the higher the resolution the closer the dots are placed on the print media. For lower resolutions the dots are placed farther apart. This process is comparative to the flow of ink used in inkjet printers wherein lower resolutions normally means fewer ink drops. The quality of the display for these types of printing devices are better when handling textual or line image contents rather than graphical images.
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
This printing device is capable of supporting bidirectional printing with a draft printing mode speed of 480 characters per second. The device driver allows the Tally T2140 to support a total of 56 character sets which includes 20 international sets along with Epson and IBM PC codes. The maximum printing resolution that can be achieved with this particular hardware component is 360 by 360 dots per inch. The fonts range anywhere from standard to Letter Quality print outs. One of the most important roles of the device driver is to provide the computer user with software interface to control the properties associated with the printing device at runtime. This means that the computer user can dictate the resolution and font quality before sending the print request to the supported hardware component. The configuration for the Tally T2140 can be done either directly from the Print menu of the supported program or from the control panel applet of the operating system environment. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Tally T2140 errors before installing any driver updates.
