The letters and numbers are a self-test the printer can do even without a computer.

What version of Windows do you have? If it's XP, it may have a driver built in, but Win98 had almost no drivers included.

Did the printer have an installation CD that came with it? Usually, printers that are proprietary, you install by inserting the CD and letting it boot up instead of trying to do it through the Control Panel Printers and Faxes. Also, the instructions usually say not to connect the printer until the instructions tell you to do so. They can be very persnickity about the order of things.

Good Luck,
Mary

Hi Charles (and everyone else),
