When ever I open up the cd label maker program and go to the print screen my cpu locks up and I have to restart my cpu. It just locks up when I go to the calibrate printer or print a label out. I have tried reinstalling the program to no avail so I installed a nother version of the cd label maker thinking the file might be corrupt but it still locks my cpu up. I am running windows 98SE. Thanks

Do you have problems printing from any other programs? Is printer USB or parallel?

If parallel:

Try different BIOS setup options for the parallel port mode setting.

Start with Standard/SPP, then EPP, then ECP. Test after each change.

Usually in 'Integrated Peripherals'. Might help. Good Luck! http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/smile.gif

also chances are, you still have the program that you made the CD with open, as well as maybe several things perhaps??

I have 128 sdram, and if I have too many things going on it can freeze..in fact thats the only time I really have a problem at all.

have icq, (BIG memory HOG)- 2 camera's and apps, music blastin (musicmatch)- outlook express, at least 8 (ie) browser's, couple of word processing docs (word)and several other things all at once.. that's how I do it.. hehe

It just locks up with this program, nothing else locks up cpu. TO sea69 dont have any thing else running in background. I guess I will email the label maker producer but I doubt they will know.

I'll repeat my questions:

Do you have problems printing from any other programs?

Is printer USB or parallel?

Name of the program is cd label maker by memorex. My printer is a parallel port printer.also I do not have any troubles printing other stuff its just when I open the label makerr and then I click the print button annd my cpu has lock up and I have to restart. Meaning like the print preview in the label maker prgram, then it locks up.
