First of all, this driver update for HP PSC 950 is rather big at over 37 MB, so if you do not have a broad band connection, HP advice you to order a cdrom with the driver inside.

There is no mention of any new improvement or added functionality with this new version of driver, so I guess you will need to install the driver to see if any difference. More stable/power saving perhaps?

For HP PSC 950 printer driver installation, basically you need to disconnect the USB printer cable and uninstall the previous version of printer driver files before you can install the new driver. For detailed installation instruction, I have make the step-by-step guide as below:
