When I have printed one page the printer carriage just keeps moving back and forward on its run,but only about a quarter of the distance. This goes on for 10 mins or so. then I have to shut down and start all over again.I have uninstalled etc but to no good result.What can i DO?
As Pesala says Need to know more about the printer and the system. It initially sounds like spool or cache problem that is the reserved area where the data for the printer is collected before passing to printer is not big enough for the print job, so the machine dithers whilst the computer catches up. Bur more detail before a definitive answer please.
That helps a little . How much memory about 64 Mb I wager? Go yo My Computer,Help, type in the field 'Virtual Memory' follow the links to that panel. Increase the size of the virtual memory. Please report back what is happening
