You would need to increase your virtual memory and restart your computer. Windows XP:

Right click my computer, go to properties
Select the advanced tab
Click advanced tab
Click change under virtual memory.
Set virtual memory 1500 to 4000
click set and apply, ok
If the memory is set higher, select a higher number.
This should resolve your issue.

I can't print pdf files from the internet, I have to "save as"1st

Sometimes the file name assigned to a pdf is not compatible with our printer's memory. For example, if the file name includes brackets [ ] or other punctuation, or is very long, the printer won't recognize it. One print job that stalls will hold up the entire print queue, so delete your job from the queue.
First, look at the file name displayed in the print server's list of print jobs. The same file name also appears in the top blue bar of your Acrobat pdf display. Are there brackets, per cent signs, or other punctuation marks in the file name?

Can't print Word 97 documents. Status says

First check the printer is actually ON - (lights etc) Then see if the printer works from other applications (Excel etc) If not, unplug the printer and plug it back in again. Check your ink tanks (though you should get a message if that is the problem).

If you can print from a different app, it is not the printer that is the problem. Check the printer settings within Word. Still nothing? Go to the control panel, select printers and check that the correct printer is selected. If so, you may have corrupted the driver - get onto (or any other) put in the model details, download./install the new driver.

"out of memory" message appears when I try to print a spreadsheet

Obviously, your PC is quite an older one with less than the required memory. You might also have run other programs that might be hindering your MS works 8.0 as these programs are memory intensive! Solution: Add more than 2 Gig bytes of new RAM ( shop around for a cheap/reliable one )to your PC system as the required memory! As for the page file ( find it under 'Control Panel - System/ System Settings - Advanced - Performance Options - Advanced - Virtual Memory - C: or D: or whichever your logical drives you might have' ), try to increase it to 2 Gig bytes!

A security factor worth taking note of: Use drive D: or whichever data drive your PC uses for its data as sometimes hackers try to hack into your System/ OS drive like C: so as to compromise the IT security.

Your MS works 8.0 might require a re-installation after the increase of the RAM and the page file!

Excel Print Queue Delay Problem

It has to do with your collate settings on your printers properties and the collate settings on your first print screen that shows up when you go to print. First when you are ready to print select print from the file menu in excel then go to the properties of the printer you are going to use and make sure the finishing properties are set the way you want them. Hit ok then you will be back at the first print screen. Here uncheck the collate box and then print. I am unsure but this may work. I had a similar problem a while ago and I know if I played with the collate check box it would print much faster other wise each time it was going to print a copy of the document it had to resend all the information again to the printer, which took forever.

    Unable to print from word 2007

    I had a similar problem. When I set up Vista I created an Administrator account, then set up my everyday user account. After hours of tweaking settings and re-installing printers, I realized that I could print from Office 2007 from my admin account but not from my user account. Of course, the error messages in no way indicated a permissions problem - they indicated I had a printer problem or a driver problem. Anyway, as a test, I granted my everyday account Admin status and now I can print fine. I had to sacrifice some security just to be able to do a simple thing like use the printer. Oh well, maybe "Windows 2057" will fix everything....
