Printing Pauses / Stops

  Lambphall 17:56 PM 16 Feb 11


Developed a problem with printing from vista, basicalliy print job starts then it pauses and will not print any more, have to switch printer off to clear.
Ok the printer is new but this problem started on the old printer also.
Also uninstalled and re installed driver twice.

any Ideas as the usual searches and fixes do not seem to be working.

Try running the fix it on this click here. It could be a print spooler problem if you expand the section on that it may help too.

How much ram do you have? It does sound like a print spooler problem though.

Also what make & model of printer.

If you have a Memory Stick (flash Drive) can you put it in a USB port and post back if you can access what is on the Memory/Flash drive.
