Question about Canon PIXMA MP600 all-In-One InkJet Printer
It used to work
now it begins to transfer the scanned image then it freezes up and the computer freezes up
I can't even end the program and have had to restart.
I've looked for driver updates, downloaded ver 3 update didn't seem to have anything to do with my problem but thought it worth a try...
uninstalled and reinstalled the software.
Your PC is freezing up for a number of possable reasons. The first and most obviouse to me is that you have simply run out of available memory to process the scanned image to a form that can be read on the computer screen. This memory is the ram in your pc and you might find that with windows and all the other applications you have running, your pc simply does not have the power to do everything.
The second reason is the number of programs you have running in your start up. You can easily remove all or some and re activate all or some. Find the "run" prompt in your start menu and type in "msconfig" You will open a screen and the last tab will be the start up tab. you can remove all or some and you can go in and out of this as many times as you like until your get only the programs you need to run on start up, such as your antivirus and internet connection. This will take some time until you get it right and if you are at all unsure, take the pc to a pro to reconfigure it.
The first thing I would suggest, and the easiest, is to pop down to your local PC store and get them to put a little more memory in you PC. If this fails to fix the problem, than you will no doubt need to have our PC cleaned up. This can be an expensive excersize, however if you value you data, it is well worth the cost to get a professional to do it for you.
