Office Jet 1170: HPMSP2IA Repeatedly Crashes My Computer

I'm using an 1170cse Office Jet with a Gateway Pentium 450 and using Norton Crash Guard. Whenever this error occurs -- and it can be very frequent -- efforts to recover send me to a blue screen with an invalid VXD dynamic link from vwin32(05)

Windows 98 Version 4.10.1998

HPMSP2IA caused an invalid page fault in

module KERNEL32.DLL at 0177:bff7dadd.

Can you reproduce the crash at will? What kinds of jobs crash the system (faxes, graphics, etc.). If you can reproduce, you might try to disable the CrashGuard and any other processes. There is likely a conflict with the drivers and something else that is running. Make sure also that you install the latest drivers using the HP installation software and not the Windows "Add Printer" function.

Hi there,

Two methods:
1. (you may have heard this) Uninstall the printer driver. Reboot. Reinstall. Test.

2. Uninstall driver. Reboot. Reinstall with a different version. Choose the closest driver version of your printer. Try it .. !

Good luck!
