Default Printer parameters stored where?

I am printing to s special printer which emulates an HP Deskjet 500. In my Word document it forces the margins to 1.5" on Left & Right no matter how wide the paper is or else I get the "margins are outside the printer area" error. Is the printer margins established by the printer driver? Can they be changed? I need to print with about 3/8" margins on L&R. I am printing to an envelope #10 layout and it puts return address almost 2" in from the left. Otherwise if I narrow the margin less than 1.5" I get the "section 1 outside printer area" error.

Hi Doc man,

The printer's driver either stores the printer's non-printable area specs or queries the printer's firmware for them. Either way, it's not something you can change.

What you might try, though, is a driver for a later-model printer with similar specs to the one you're now using.

Thank you for responding, lots of lookers but no answers. The only real problem is error "section 1 margins outside of printer area" but no indication given of what margins are causing the problem. I move margins all around but never get the error to leave, finally tried HP5Si and it seems to work better. Thanks again.
