After Installation on Window 95, System says new hardware found
If after installing the printer software and Windows 95 reboots
the system says "New Hardware Found-HP LaserJet 6L. In rare cases after
installing the software, Windows 95 does not recognize that the software
is installed.  If this happens just check the box that says 
"Do not install a driver(Windows will not prompt you again)".

Document does not print correctly with PCL Driver
Several things can cause a document to not print correctly; not 
enough memory in the printer to handle the document being printed, 
incorrect behavior by applications, Windows or printer drivers, or 
incorrect settings in the printer drivers.  If using the HP 
LaserJet 6L (PCL) printer driver, try printing in either 
HP-GL/2 or Raster modes or changing resolutions from 600 to 300.  
These modes can be selected in the printer setup dialog under the 
Print Quality sheet.

If you continually receive Printer not Found messages or Pages never 
start to print
WARNING: Only use this workaround if you are NOT using any other devices
on the same parallel port (such as: Zip drive and Tape backups) as the 
HP LaserJet 6L.

In your C;\windows\system directory delete the file hpwemon.386.  Then,
copy the file emonport.csc (on Disk 3 of your HP LaserJet 6l software)
to c:\windows\system and rename it hpwemon.386.  Now reboot you computer.

This workaround should not only fix printer not found problems with 
some parallel ports, but will also increase the speed of printing in 
most cases.

Correcting printing problem with the additional printer driver
You receive two drivers for the HP LaserJet 6L printer.  The
installation program installs the Host Based driver if your PC meets the
minimum requirement of the Host Based Driver, otherwise the PCL driver
is installed.  If you have any problems when using the "Typical" option 
of the installer with the Host Based Driver. 
You can install the PCL driver by using the CUSTOM installation option in 
the setup program. 

Device drivers that cause printing problems

The following device drivers are known to cause problems when printing.  
To correct the problem, search your system.ini file for any of the drivers
below.  To disable the driver place a semicolon (;) in front of the driver
line and then restart windows. (i.e.  ;DEVICE=vecpd.386)

These drivers are known to cause problems:
