AutoCad Error Aborting

I'm trying to print/plot a floor plan from AutoCad 2006 to an HP DJ 1050C PLus, and just as the job is being sent through to the printer, I get the following error message: Fatal Error: Unhandled Access Violation Reading 0x0000 Excpetion at 360473a7h. After acknolweding this error, there is nothing that prints.

Later on as I went to this machine again, I noticed it wasn't giving that error anymore, instead, it's just printing a very small portion of the drawing.

Anyway I can solve this problem? Please help guys...

Are you adjusting the view to see what want before plotting?  Do a preview to verify you have object in window you are plotting?  This sounds like the view selected for plotting does not have any objects in it to send to the plotter.

Sindy...
The drawing I'm trying to plot is within the page/paper size, when I do a plot review, I can see the drwaing. The other thing is this, when it plots that little portion of the drawing, the paper size is the actual size that is supposed to plot to.( Meaning that the little print-out is produced on the right paper size. On an A1 paper-size, it just plots a small portion.)

Does the same thing happen when you try plotting it from another computer?

Check if the drivers are up to date on this machine.

Thanks guys, I finally managed to get it right. There were two problems:

1- I had to change the paging file memory setting(set the maximum to 3Gigs and the initial to the physically installed RAM), as the first error was memory related.

2- Adding only the actual plotter within the printers wasn't enough. I had to install an AutoCad system plotter within Plotter Management in AutoCad.

With the 2 points above, my AutoCad users are now happily printing and working on AutoCad.

Techn125 should get the points since the applications plot drivers were the problem or most of the problem in this case.

Contrary to dshindy (but appreciated ;o) ) im all for the refund to realeboga. Unless the OP admit that my suggestion directly steered him/her toward the solution and considering he/she came back to post the solution at least, i think most of the issue have been self troubleshooted. My suggestion was going toward memory settings (OLE boost the size of a file, to uncommon proportion but for the largest pure CAD file) and to some related extent drivers installation, but there wasn't any research involved in the suggestion but a mere couple seconds of thinking so i dont consider the points are my due per se, unless if for the aforementionned admition by the OP ;o)
