Computer freezes when i try to print items

I have 2 e-machine computers both have the same problem. When i try to print anything from them with my epson printers( R300 & R360)both these computers freeze and then i have to restart them. I have installed the correct drivers from the Epson cd supplied with them and i have tried various usb leads and different usb ports. Any thoughts would be very helpful. Many thanks, Braggy

Not responding to sent items to print


Have you tried testing the printer on a other computer?

If the printer is still under warranty then the best would be to phone HP because it could be a formatter board issue.

The print spooler service is not running iam using MP830 printer


There are a few different causes for this. All of them leading to the "spooler" service to stop running.

The most common remedy is to just reboot the computer. If this fails, there may be a corrupted document in the spool queue that is crashing the service repeatedly here are the steps to clear it out:

For Windows XP (your computer says "start" in the bottom left)
1. Go to the "Start" menu and click "run"
2. in the window that comes up enter "net start spooler"
3. Try printing again.
4. If the problem continues then:
5. Click "start" and "Run" again.
6. enter "C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS" and click ok and delete any items in there.
7. Close that window.
8. Restart the computer.
You should now be able to print.

For Windows Vista or Windows 7:
1. Click the blue "Start" orb
2. In the search box enter "command"
3. The computer will return with several items
4. Right click on the black item that says "command prompt"
5. click "run as administrator"
6. in the black window type "net start spooler" and press enter
7. try printing again, if it fails continue to step 8
8. open the blue start orb
9. in the search box enter "C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS"
9.5. If you get a permissions message click continue
10. delete all items from there.
11. back in the black command prompt box, type "net start spooler" again
12. You should be able to print.

If you still cannot print, you may have one or more corrupted print drivers. In this case you will need to delete and re-install your printers from the computer using instructions from the manufacturer.

I have a HP OfficeJet G85 all in one machine. Just changed the colour cartridge for a HP original one. First alignment page was good showed all colours. The first time i used it it would not print red it...


Have you any applications like deep freeze installed on your computer machine? If so uninstall it restart your computer and try to print again. The fact is some programs cause colour malfunction in the computer. The similar scenario I encountered, I had to format the system for the colours to print correctly again. But i have seen where deep freeze cause similar issues before.

Good luck & God bless!

This question is for my siter who is having trouble with her Compaq Presario. The screen goes black after the Compaq Welcome screen is up. She's tried unplugging the tower for over 5 minutes and it did...


Possible a bad video card. If it is intergrated card you can purchase a PCI card and install it very easy. You should have a couple of empty PCI slots. The computer freezing could be a virus or the hard drive is goin gout. Hard to tell if I am not there. If it is a good gomputer you want to keep, I recomend bringing it to a computer shop and having it checked out. If you have any more questions please contact me..Darren

Scans stop at 99% and make the entire prog (all in one software)not responding as well as printer freezes between a double sides printing (after finishing the pages on one side)


You've tried to uninstall and reinstall the printer driver of your printer. But still no luck. The printer still won't print. Or it would say printing but it won't finish printing.

You can try these steps:

1.Check if the firewall is blocking any printer services

2.Check what port the printer is using (reenable the bi-directional support) and if it's on online mode

3.Disable all the firewalls

4.Uninstall the printer driver and software

5.Delete any items under the ff keys:
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Drivers\Version-2

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Drivers\Version-3

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet001\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Drivers\Version-2

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet001\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Drivers\Version-3

Optional***
6.Delete any non default items under the ff keys:
Note: ONLY THE NON DEFAULT ITEMS SHOULD BE DELETED
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Monitors
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet001\Control\Print\Monitors
Default items are as follows:
AppleTalk Printing Devices
BJ Language Monitor
Local Port
PJL Language Monitor
Standard TCP/IP Port
USB Monitor
Windows NT FAx Monitor
*****
7.Delete any items under the ff keys:
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Printers

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet001\Control\Print\Printers

8.Completely remove drivers by doing the ff: (Option for comm failure because of the upgrade from xp to vista)
Ensure there are no documents in queue.

Disconnect printer’s USB cable.

Click the Start pearl, then click All programs, Printers, Dell xxx (where “xxx” is the printer model number) and then Uninstall. Complete the uninstall utility.

From the start search box type spool and press .

The spool folder located at c:\windows\system32\spool opens.

Rename c:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\w32X86 to c:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\backup.

Rename c:\windows\system32\spool\prtprocs\W32X86 to c:\windows\system32\spool\prtprocs\backup.

9.Restart the computer.

10.Check th services status

Start-Run- Type Services.msc and Click on Open

You will see long list of services

You need to make sure following 4 Services are set to Automatically start

Remote Procedure Call RPC
Remote Procedure Call RPC Locater
LexBce Server
Print Spooler

11.Reinstall the latest printer driver

good luck :)

My computer keeps freezing when i turn it on


reboot the machine. tap the f8 key and select safe mode. boot into safe mode and see if the computer freezes up again.

in the event it doesnt, you have a bad driver or new software on the drive. to correct this go to gateway.com select your model and download any recent updates including the bios. also uninstall any new service packs or software you had loaded recently.

reboot machine and see if you have the same error.

if this continues or it froze in safemode you could have two problems,

1. Corrupt OS files, the fix: Restore Machine after backing up data.
2. GPU having issues and heating up to the point it turns off, the fix: Local repair shop or Gateway replace mobo or local repair shop reflow board.

Let me know what you try and what works! Good Luck!
