Dear all,

I recently noticed after removing Ubuntu Linux and repairing Windows (after getting a worrying error message at boot up) that when deleting a print job, the print manager seems to stop and permanently displays status "deleting" for the job I am trying to delete.

So far I have had to restart Windows to make it act and clear the print manager window..if I have a few other print jobs in the queue nothing after the job being deleted will print. I tried clicking cancel job for that being deleted but there is no diff...even when cancelling all print jobs the jobs in queue disappear rapid except the job being deleted.

the printer does the job but the driver for the printer (Lexmark 1100 series) shows 99% and stops despite the job actually being printed. Also the same job is still queued under print manager and I endure the above mentioned problem.

I recently upgraded my memory to 1GB (512 X2). One of the modules was purchased in an emergency situation from Staples (it has not given a problem btw) and the other from crucial.com...would a memory problem be causing this?

All advice is much appreciated.

Thanks :thumbsup:

My systems do this periodically - usually it's the result of a poorly executed command on my part (starting the print job before I turn on the printer, etc).

Since you've repaired Windows, I'd think that the next step would be to uninstall the printer software and remove the printer from your Printers folder. Then unplug it and reboot. Then, install the printer software according to the manufacturer's instructions.
