HP Printer PSC 1401

by arkyduck / March 18, 2011 12:08 AM PDT

I bought an HP PSC1401 printer/scanner. The install disk requires over 300mb of system memory. Talk about a memory hog! Is there a way to make this printer functional with less memory usage? Thanks

But I think you meant 300MB of disk space. I have yet to see the driver require 300MB of system memory or "RAM."

Did you look at for a driver only without the apps?

Sorry about that! I meant disk space. I will look on HP's website. Thanks

During install

During the printer install, verify if you can install a basic or limited version w/o all the bells and whistles. Thgis assumes, that it allows this, I know my 1350 did but I found later I wanted the full install, so again see if yours allows this.
