    guys,

    little help... i have a pentium 3, 500mzh and some mega (128?)on the board.

    i instaled an internal cd burner from HP, it works fine, but since then i've been facing two problems with my PC:

    - when i turn it on, the light blue screen from the windows takes about 3 minutes to disapear... and it used to take seconds...

    - when i send some work to the printer, it doesn't print and it doesn't show any error message, looks like i've never sent anything to the printer. but when i restart my machine, (after the long wait on the windows screen) it props a window saying that my printer has 1 job, and if i want to print it...

    any help guys???

    ------------------
    maybe i'm crazy,
    or just too high...

    With your first problem, as you install more hardware/software, the more drivers Windows has to load, thus the longer it takes Windows to get rid of the startup screen. That's normal. (I've got a 5 minute boot time sometimes.)

    As for your second problem--that's a little stickier. Does the print job work after you restart?

    Right Now, it's safe to add one (1) to my post count.

    Right Now, teenybopper trash doesn't stand a chance.
    Right Now, MTV has no idea what happens when rabid Van Halen fans have their favorite band insulted.
    Soon Enough, they'll learn the hard way.

    I'd go to your control panel, or start-settings-printers, delete your current printer, then add it again. Go through the entire install process for your printer again. I am assuming its local so it should be a pretty quick process (either way really). Windows blows. A good description is the wind chime thing. When one program can effect one or more other ones. Your cd prog probably screwed with your printer somehow. Windows is great

    That, or something got hung up in the print que. If there are print jobs pending, purge them and then see what happens.
