    How is your printer connected to your machine and do you have the latest drivers for it? If you change the default printer to something else in Printer Setup Utility, does it still crash? :)

    its connected wirelessly through my home network. when i plug it in with a cable with my other printer i dont remember it crashing.

    usually it will crash but when i try it again it will work which is making me confused

    Are you using an AirPort or a different brand of router? Is it connected to the router via ethernet or USB? What brand and model or printer is it? :)

    im using a netgear router i believe with the printer being a HP 970cxi. The printer is connected to an emac and I have "share printers" on in the emacs preferences. The emac in turn is connected to the router which is wirelessly connected to my macbook

    thanks for the help mad jew!

    No worries mate. Have you had a look through this page? It's basically just saying you might need to install the latest drivers on both machines. :)

    Perhaps you're using an incorrect driver by mistake. Maybe try HP's version.
