I have a machine running Win95a. For a long while it has been printing to an HP 5si. Recently the user has needed to print to a networked Deskjet 1120C. After I install the drivers for the 1120C, the machine blue screens when I try to print to the 5si. I have tried 1120C drivers donwloaded from HP's site and from the CD but with no change.

When I remove the 1120C, everything prints fine again. Any thoughts on how to get these two printers to play nicely with each other?

It sounds as if they are both using printer status monitors. If both of them use printer status monitors then they are going to knock each other out.

The only possible solutions would be

1. Go to start settings printers right click on the printer then select properties, go to details tab then click on port set it to file for the on you are not going to print with. Leave the other one on its orginal setting...

2. Another option in the under the same properties window as above under details tab click on spool settings and set both printers to print directly to the port, RAW or EMF for format and dot the "disable bi-directional communication for this printer" this may cause error messages however but it is something you can try.

When you say the 1120c is networked how is it networked through a jet direct box shared on a print server connected parallel or on ethernet connection also what about the 5si   is it directly connected to lpt1 ?

To answer your question, the 1120C is connected to the network via a JetDirect box. I tried your suggestions and the machine still bluescreened.  What I hadn't tried doing is reinstalling the 5si driver after the 1120C. Everything id working now. Thank you for your suggestion. I will accept your comment as an answer.
