Windows XP Pro Slow Down

Guys,

Recently I purchased an Epson C43 UX printer for my PC. I followed the directions of the installation and blah blah blah .. everything is ok.

And so I plugged in the USB cable and test print the printer. Looks fine to me, and no problem at all.

However, after that I notice that my PC is lagging. Everything that I do the computer is slower compared to before installing the printer. The part that is easily noticable is when I play games, for example, need for speed. Before it is not lagging but now there are jerks and stuffs like that.

I tried uninstalling the printer and re-installing but still it is the same. Any remedy for situation please?

Thank you.

Did it change when you uninstalled printer software, drivers etc..?

If so I have a backup epson printer and I did get a M$ update from their site after installing it.

Maybe float off over to windows update site and check. If not try windows update catalog, check through the devices and search at update site. Good luck!

I would perhaps check the Asus site for newer USB drivers for your board. Also could be your USB controller is sharing resources (IRQ) with your graphics card?

I agree with these ideas - there should be something you can do to disable USB to eliminate it as a cause of problems (just I do not know what it might be :rolleyes: )

One other idea - check your print spool file is allocated and OK (I like to keep mine on a separate disc from Windoze personally ;) )

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
