    Have you got enough memory to use this program? All programs need so much memory assigned to them just for that purpose.

Tip

Things You Must Know To Avoid PC Crash Part 3


7 Printers
The action of sending a document to print creates a bigger file, often called a postscript file.
Printers have only a small amount of memory, called a buffer. This can be easily overloaded. Printing a document also uses a considerable amount of CPU power. This will also slow down the computer's performance.
If the printer is trying to print unusual characters, these might not be recognised, and can crash the computer. Sometimes printers will not recover from a crash because of confusion in the buffer. A good way to clear the buffer is to unplug the printer for ten seconds. Booting up from a powerless state, also called a cold boot, will restore the printer's default settings and you may be able to carry on.
8 Software
A common cause of computer crash is faulty or badly-installed software. Often the problem can be cured by uninstalling the software and then reinstalling it. Use Norton Uninstall or Uninstall Shield to remove an application from your system properly. This will also remove references to the programme in the System Registry and leaves the way clear for a completely fresh copy.
The System Registry can be corrupted by old references to obsolete software that you thought was uninstalled. Use Reg Cleaner by Jouni Vuorio to clean up the System Registry and remove obsolete entries. It works on Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 98 SE (Second Edition), Windows Millennium Edition (ME), NT4 and Windows 2000.
Read the instructions and use it carefully so you don't do permanent damage to the Registry. If the Registry is damaged you will have to reinstall your operating system. Reg Cleaner can be obtained from www.jv16.org
Often a Windows problem can be resolved by entering Safe Mode. This can be done during start-up. When you see the message "Starting Windows" press F4. This should take you into Safe Mode.
Safe Mode loads a minimum of drivers. It allows you to find and fix problems that prevent Windows from loading properly.
Sometimes installing Windows is difficult because of unsuitable BIOS settings. If you keep getting SUWIN error messages (Windows setup) during the Windows installation, then try entering the BIOS and disabling the CPU internal cache. Try to disable the Level 2 (L2) cache if that doesn't work.
Remember to restore all the BIOS settings back to their former settings following installation.
9 Overheating
Central processing units (CPUs) are usually equipped with fans to keep them cool. If the fan fails or if the CPU gets old it may start to overheat and generate a particular kind of error called a kernel error. This is a common problem in chips that have been overclocked to operate at higher speeds than they are supposed to.
One remedy is to get a bigger better fan and install it on top of the CPU. Specialist cooling fans/heatsinks are available from www.computernerd.com or www.coolit.com
CPU problems can often be fixed by disabling the CPU internal cache in the BIOS. This will make the machine run more slowly, but it should also be more stable.
10 Power supply problems
With all the new construction going on around the country the steady supply of electricity has become disrupted. A power surge or spike can crash a computer as easily as a power cut.
If this has become a nuisance for you then consider buying a uninterrupted power supply (UPS). This will give you a clean power supply when there is electricity, and it will give you a few minutes to perform a controlled shutdown in case of a power cut.

It is a good investment if your data are critical, because a power cut will cause any unsaved data to be lost.

I AM ON THE WINDOWS XP AFTER INSTALLING THE DRIVER THE TEST PAGE IS PRINTED BY THE PRINTER BUT ON GIVING COMMAND FOR OTHER PRINTING THE PRINTER DOES NOT PRINT


Got to: start>settings(classic view)>control panel>printers and faxes.
An icon for your printer should be there. Right click the printer icon and select "use as default". While in control panel, you can run the troubleshooter. Sometimes it works. Sometimes the software doesn't install correctly. Uninstall the software from the add/remove software in control panel, then re-install the printer software.

How do I get my Kodak Easy Share Printer #7330 to print pictured from my Compaq computer?


first install the printer onto the computer, downloading the drivers or using printer disk.
If your printer is already installed on your computer and working you do not need to install it , skip this step.

Then download pictures onto computer, using USB cable.

open downloaded picture by double clicking with left mouse button.
Once you open the picture with picture viewer open file menu and chose print, or click the small printer sign.

If you use oprint preview iit may be easier for you to change printer settings to print the pictures.

How do I fix spooldr.sys?


Just clean it up, cut its nuts off and sew it up.
What makes you think it's broken?  You could examine the file with a hex viewer like that in IrfanView, replace the file with a fresh or backup copy, or recompile it from source; but assuming it's crashing, it might just be some bad control data around (e.g. if you were printing when your PC crashed) or a malformed print spool file you can delete.
     Just run your antivirus programs (see sourceforge and avg for free ones) as usual, but try 'use printer offline' and editing the spool list (print queue, whatever you want to call it) or running debug software to see what file goes in juuust before spooldr.sys crashes.

You miscategorized the problem as being for all PC Desktops when spooldr.sys is specific to something you hold more uniquely, by the way; a particular version of Windows (not XP) or your HP printer.
