PC crashes when printing

System Packard Bell Multimedia 650
windows 98se
Printer Lexmark Z42

Computer freezes when printing large(10+pages) documenents.
I have downloaded the latest drivers from drivers.com and am thinking of changing the virtual memory size.
Computer belongs to a friend 2 hours drive away, any ideas would be greatly appreciated as I realy don't wish to waste my or thier time(for me it's a days round trip)

Has he tried another printer? If he can, beg/borrow/steal one and install it and it works, I'd be inclined to buy a new cheap printer - it'd cost little more than your petrol
