Using IBM LaserPrinter 4019 & 4029 (Non-PostScript) with NT


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows NT Server version 3.1
  • Microsoft Windows NT Workstation version 3.1
  • Microsoft Windows NT Advanced Server, version 3.1


To use either the IBM LaserPrinter model 4019 non-PostScript or model 4029 non-PostScript printer with Windows NT, you must configure the printer for Hewlett-Packard (HP) Series II emulation and install the HP LaserJet Series II printer driver.

Microsoft does not provide Windows NT printer drivers for the non-PostScript models of these printers.

To configure the IBM LaserPrinter 4019 and 4029 for HP Series II emulation, hold down the Font button on the front panel of the printer as you turn the printer on. The printer will remain in the HP Series II emulation mode until you configure it otherwise.


Microsoft provided drivers for the Non-PostScript IBM LaserPrinters for Windows 3.1 and Windows for Workgroups. These drivers were based on GENDRV.DLL and have not been converted for Windows NT at this time.

The LaserPrinter 4019 and 4029 are manufactured by IBM, a vendor independent of Microsoft; we make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding these products' performance or reliability.
