    'Add a printer' dialog crashes immediately


    If I click 'Add a printer' in Control Panel, a window flashes on the screen then immediately closes. If I click 'Add a printer or scanner' from the Settings application, the application hangs for a moment then crashes. I have tried this fix here: Upgrade to Windows 10 Can't Install Printer - Spiceworks from an identical laptop but to no avail.

    Specs:
    MSI GP62 7RD Leopard (laptop)
    i7-7700HQ
    16GB RAM
    GTX 1050
    Windows 10 Home 1809
    System drive: 128GB SSD
    Additional drive: 1TB HDD

    Thanks in advance.

    :)

  2. No printer dialog box

    I am in a file folder and highlighting the files I want to print then clicking the print button. It immediately goes to print. No dialog box, just a box showing it is printing to the printer.

    all games crash!

    I suggest you run rthdribl > http://www.daionet.gr.jp/~masa/archives/rthdribl_1_2.zip
    Increase the window size step by step and watch your vga temps permanently.
    What happens?
    If it crashes, run at stock speeds as suggested before and retry.

    P.S.: When your system locks, does the display signal turn off after a time?
    Stuttering sound or no sound at all when freezing?
    What X1800XT model do you own exactly?
