Fried of mine wants me to look at his pc on saturday. Whenever he boots up his PC it runs fine. Hoever when the printer is turned on, the PC reboots.He is running XP.Im thinking it could be a virus, IRQ conflict, bad printer cable or the printer drivers.Ive never come across this before.Any ideas? Cheers
Need some help here guys
uninstall printer and test performance then virus scan. or scan in safe boot. good luck
Test performance? You mean of the computer? It works fine with the printer turned off.
In the run box type MSCONFIG, then under setup tab look for printer software that start's at boot Remove the tick's for the Printer and reboot computer
Will this be the cause of it? As i have said, i have never come across this problem before.Cheers woodchip
maybe the printer is conflicting with something else. stop it in msconfig then look.i suspect its a virus though
Woodchip. one last thing...if i do this will my friend still be able to use the printer?
yes it just means the software doesnt start when you boot up - but it will start when you use the printer.
Ok i'll give it a go.My friend lives 30 miles away from me and i dont want to spend my all day saturday in his house!Cheers nelie and woodchip!
Whatever happens Please let us know how you get on, do not tick the box and leave us thinking what did it.
