HP LaserJet 5L problem

When running certain programs (I believe these are RAM intensive such as DirectX games), my HP(LaserJet 5L) Printer Status window (which normally resides on the Task Bar) will for no reason pop onto the screen(i.e. it will open). This causes the program being run at the time to be minimized & sometimes causes other havoc. I then have to close down the HP status window before restoring the program which was being run. There is no reference to this problem at HP's Web site (tech. support documents). This is certainly puzzling to me. Any ideas out there will be appreciated.

Hi !

I have find this problem today on a custumer PC.

5L has many problems.

To solve this one you must remove from win.ini (in c:\windows)
the line
LOAD=HPXXXXX.EXE (i don' remember the exact name).
REMOVE ONLY HPXXX.XXX not LOAD=

Bye   ;)

It's difficult to judge a response when that response has to be implemented & tested!
