hi, could someone tell me what

stack overflow at line 65 .........means

Stacks are reserved memory that programs use to process hardware events. A stack overflow occurs when there is not enough space in memory to run the hardware interrupt routines. To resolve these behaviors, you can modify the "STACKS=" line in the Config.sys file, eliminate terminate-and-stay-resident program (TSRs), and eliminate hardware conflicts.

When Windows delivers an error message that is related to an internal stack overflow, there is not enough space in memory either set aside or available to handle the calls that are made to the computer hardware

How much memory do you actually have?

if we mean ram, it has 1GB

rather dispells my theory that you were low on resourses when multi-tasking, i can,t get to technical, its a bit beyond me as well and i don't think changeing any virtual memory settings will have an effect....

Hi, I also get the Stack overflow message but only when using the Sierra Print Artist program.
It only occurs in Print Artist when I change or try to reset the printer options or settings.
I've tried altering the STACK= setting in Config Sys. but it makes no difference.
I think the problem is inherent in the Sierra program
I get round the problem by altering the default settings of my printer before entering the Print Artist program and then it prints quite normally.
This problem never arises with any other program, only Sierra Print Artist.

Like SANTOS7 has assumed, I am assuming you have XP. If this is the case take a look in your Event Viewer. An event may have been generated for this error and might give you a suggestion for resolving this problem?
