Printer causes computer to crash.

Every time I try to print something from the computer the computer stops and a black screen tells me it is going to shut down and tells me to re-boot in in "safe or in a mode that it worked properly" When I do this it repeats the same instructions.

Completely uninstall the software of the printer, you can do this from start -> control panel -> uninstall programs or add or remove programs, find the printer software from the list and uninstall them all.

Unplug the printer from the computer and open up printers and faxes, start -> control panel -> printers and faxes.

right click on the printer and select Delete, if you have it there more than ones then delete each one.

Ones you have done the steps above restart the computer.

I would need to know the brand and model of the printer to supply you with new drivers and software for it. Or you can use the disc that came with the printer aslong as it is suppored by your windows , don't install xp drivers for vista and vise versa.

Let me know,
Thanks,
Ekse

That is a problem with printer control software.

Reinstall printer driver software.

If you have a disk , check that software disk is compatible with the operative system you are using. If you are not sure, tell us make and model or download from website below:

Why my printer won't print from my desktop but will from my wifi laptop


Since it prints from your laptop and not your desktop, it sounds like it's either printer driver or the Wi-Fi connection. Does your desktop computer see/recognize the printer? If not, then it is something to do with the wireless connection on your desktop computer. If it does recognize it, then it is likely the driver (program software) on your desktop that tells is how to communicate with your printer. In that case, you should go to "device manager" by right-clicking on your computer icon or accessing it through the control panel. There should be an option to update your driver. In this case, something with your computer (such as a OS - Operating System update) may have occurred which caused the desktop software (which tells it how to work) to stop working. I hope that makes sense. Take care and good luck!

Message on PC screen tells me "printer is busy"


Make sure there are no print jobs stuck in the queue. If you're using Windows, go to the Control Panel > Printers > double-click on the Lexmark print object. Delete all print jobs pending. If you can't clear all print jobs, follow the steps below:

1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in "NET STOP SPOOLER" (this will stop the print spooler service)

2. Browse to your windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\ folder. You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the time you tried to print - delete these files.

3. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in "NET START SPOOLER" (this will restart the print spooler service)


Double click the printer icon in the lower-right corner of your taskbar to examine your print job queue and browse to View -> Refresh.


Reboot your computer. Then, try to scan again.

If i leave computer on without anyone using it . computer goes to black/dark screen , can't perform any functions. also computer crashes at times during use.


You need to check your power settings. It is being set to go to turn of the drivers after a certain amount of time.

Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options Then change the power options so it does not shut off the hard drive.

It went black but the power is still on


Computer Crash
One of the more complicated reasons why laptop screen goes black is a crash. This could occur for a variety of reasons and is often very difficult to fix. You will have to take the machine to a computer repair shop, and they will open up the laptop there to find the cause. Needless to say, this could set you back by a few hundred dollars as well. The crash could be caused by overheating, or maybe even a loose power supply cable. One solution for you is to play an audio file if the laptop screen goes black. If it does not play at all then something is wrong with the entire system, but if the audio file plays then it is just the laptop screen that is troubled.

Virus
There are a few computer viruses that can cause this problem, but most antivirus programs can effectively deal with such a virus. Update your antivirus software regularly and make sure you download all possible firmwares, and this sort of virus will be successfully thwarted. If your machine is infected with such a virus then your video drivers will most certainly be affected, and even your video card could get contaminated. All this results in your computer screen going black, and in some instances, your laptop screen may even go blue.

Drivers and Programs
The video drivers are crucial for making the computer monitor function properly. On some occasions though, these programs can stop functioning due to some reason. If your laptop screen goes black after startup on a consistent basis, then maybe it is your video drivers that are malfunctioning. To avoid this situation, you should constantly upgrade your video drivers, and should also refrain from using pirated video drivers. Spend those extra bucks on getting licensed drivers, and you will save a lot of unnecessary expenditure in the future. Read more on how to upgrade laptop video card.

DELL 1720 PRINTER PRINTS VERY SLOWLY.


Whenever I have a customer tell me their printer seems to be running slower, 9 times out of 10 its what they're trying to print...not the printer. Heres a couple of things to do and ask yourself. First I'd do a test print from the printer itself. Does it kick it right out? Then go to the printer folder on the computer, right click on the printer, go to properties..click print test page. Does that come out pretty quick? Okay if they seem relatively fast then its beginning to look like something other than the printer. Try printing the job that seems to run slow. Then try printing from a different program. Is there a difference in speed? The job that prints slow may have graphics or require more memory then it use to. Perhaps you changed the graphics content on the page and the printerr is taking more time to process it. Adding more memory to the printer can help that.

Did you make any software change to the printer about the same time you noticed the slow down?
Have you changed the font color in the computer to something other than black for that particular print job? I've seen monochrome (black and white) laser printers slow down because its trying to convert the job to say violet or some other color. Its a black text printer and apparently printing color confuses it ..lol My bet is..if you really sit down and think back...something changed in the content of what your printing thats taking it longer to process it. Hope this helps!

Printing black and white.


Go into printer, properties, and printer quality.  You will be able to find the b&w, or (grayscale), and just check it.  And unfortunately, your model is one where you have to go in to change every time you print at different times...meaning if you print one after another, you do not need to recheck:)
