    I get the same problem. I have the latest drivers for my OS (Vista Home Basic), installed correctly (reinstalled a few times now just in case) and I tried your solution as well, I'm also having the same problem with the print queue not clearing. It says its deleting, but never does. I need to turn off the printer, manually delete the print queue, then turn the printer back on to be able to print anything else.

    Normally, when I hit the scan start button, the Lexmark software pops up and asks where it wants me to save. Now, the scanner does nothing and the LCD screen on theprinter goes back to the selection screen. Nada. Any ideas? I find it odd that so many people have just recently, in the last coupe of months, have started having this problem. This has to be from a Vista update, wouldn't you think?

Try resetting it by turning it off and unplugging it, reverse steps and try again. If no go, try claering print queue, if this fails, get your driver disc and uninstall the cheeky beggar and reinstall it. cheers lilacgerry xxx

2005 saturn relay check gas cap, transmission slip, temperature high, running rough. All this started wed morning. after 22 min of driving with one stop at the store in the middle. What should I do?

Having it checked for DTC's - diagnostic trouble codes should be the first step. And viewing scan data , do you know what this is ? Do you have a scan tool ? Not a code reader . Hook up scan tool an view engine data.

Xwhat deactivates asd system on 98 jeep grd. cherokee

my guess this post is , engine cranks ok, but wont start or only runs for 3 seconds. right>? why not post the symptoms first? huh?

many things, will cause the ASD to drop out.
what this relay does, is prevent fuel fires. and is part of secuity system if opted
so there are up to 8 reasons,
i guess you dont have a $9 scan tool>? and didnt scan the PCM cranking.
this page is and all year 93 to now,integrated page.
no need to worry that, only scan it, and see whats really going on.

does the ASD relay pull in at all?
or only 3 seconds cranking
that be first to state.

My suzuki grand vitara ddis diesel 2008 lost power and a zigzag light appeared but the next day it was ok the garage did not find any fault codes

tool late now.
you'd need to drive with scan tool attached then see what code
set (DTC) at failure.
can be lots of things.
bad fuel, partial clogged filter.
injector clogs. and other sensors errors.
and others, this is common rail injection system, right?
get a scan tool, and have it always ready. for fails.

Playback is choppy and it runs up my processor to 100% just from watching 1 video online or from my videos

1) Check your pagefile memory. to do this right hand click on My Computer and choose properties. Go to ADVANCED/ Performance Settings/Advanced Performance Options/ Go down to Virtual Memory and click on CHANGE. On each drive in the box, highlight it and choose "System managed size". Press ok/ Apply & OK, and Restart Your System.
2) One thing i feel i should tell you, is that your system MAY HAVE A VIRUS. Try scanning with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Remover Tool just to be sure.
3) I recommend that you run a Full Diskcheck and do a DEFRAG ON ALL DRIVES AS WELL.

Wscript.exe and other .exe popping out

It sounds like you have some computer-virus or something similarly-bad on your computer.

With Internet Explorer, access: and run the free virus-scan and the free spyware scan.

scan your system for viruses if this doesn't solves the problem then try replacing the ram or check it using memory diagnostic tool

==> reinstall operating system thats it
