Printer stops printing half way through a print job
Hi
My printer stops printing when I am half way through a print job. I tried turning it off and back on to clear some cache but still no luck.

Windows XP; 256 MB RAM

Could this be a memory problem?

Windows XP with 256 ram That must be painful. Have you always had XP?

Could be weak power supply...or simply something starting up using too much ram as that really is low ram onboard, especially if there is onboard video as well.
Brand name of pc or hardware and age?

It is a Hewlett Packard 533w.
I hate to throw it out so I am considering adding another 512MB RAM

Also trimming down running items will help, via start, run, msconfig, startup tab.
