  • Q. What do I need to know about printing from PCICS?

    There has been an issue for some time with the ability of newer printer models being unable to properly print transcripts in the PCICs software.
    The key element is that at minimum, laser printers must have PCL drivers available to it in order to print transcripts in PCICs. Host based printer drivers will not work. e.g. HP Laserjet 3600.

    When purchasing a printer that will be used with the PCICs program, the specifications of the model must be checked to ensure that the machine does support that printing language. HP is one of the most popular brands of laser printers used on campus, and their webpage provides all the specs of their different models in a very clear fashion, and buyers can single out and compare specific models to ensure compatibility.

  • Q. What is included in a system configuration?

    When you purchase a new computer from our store we will configure it for you for $55.00 which includes the installation of IDA, Symantec Antivirus, Acrobat Reader, and all Windows updates.
