How can I set the size of print buffer? I haave an HP Deskjet 712C, Win98 4.10.1998 and have installed Microsoft recommended updates.  I have a 400mhz, 128 meg mem, 10 meg unused on hard drive and no other programs running (as far as I know) when  problem occurs.When sending a large (2-3 meg) graphic file to the printer, the processor is 99% utilized according to Norton System Doctor.  If I try to close file and/or open another program while print is in process, the system hangs and printing is suspended.

You have only 10mg of hard drive space, fix this problem first. You can change the print format to something more realistic, like from Raw to Emf, and if you have free space on any other drives move some stuff to them. I am willing the to bet the probelm is HD space with the problem youare having.

I apologize--I have 10 GIGabytes unused on the hard drive. Also, I can't find any settings for this inkjet printer which allow changing to EMF, etc.
