    I have a similar situation. When I go to print I get a message saying "the printer spooler service is not running. My system is on the "automatic" setting. When I try restarting I get the message "Could not start the print spooler service on local computer Error 1068. The dependency service or group failed to start."

    My printer is a Lexmark X4270 All-in one printer. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

HI,
right click on my computer -> select manage -> one should be services and something (or something like that) open that and go to services -> find the printer spool service and right click on it -> click on properties -> in the printer spool service properites click the "Start" button and also under a drop down menu change it from "Disabled" to "Automatic".... This is what you did right ?

Log in to Administrator account and try it there. If that doesn't work then install a fresh copy of Windows Xp. It should work now. Thank you.

Printer Spooler error 1068


Hi jbaratta,

This sounds like a software problem (in other words, your printer is not the issue). Here's what I suggest:

1) Save whatever you were attempting to print, and restart the computer. Try printing it again.
2) If it doesn't work, try uninstalling the software for your printer, and then re-install it. In the event you don't have the software handy, you can download the driver from this website:

http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi

If it still doesn't work, please let me know, and I'll be happy to offer some more ideas. Hope this helps!

Kind regards,
H2H

HP print spooler problem and error 1068. Want my printer back!!!


hi! Print Spooler is actually a service for your Operating system-
Try this

Click on start and click on run
in the open box type in services.msc and your services local window should open, scroll down and look for print spooler, highlight it and do a right click and on the dropdown menu left click on stop and it will go to a process of stopping the service and then right click back and click on start. if you get an error message about print spooling or spooler, then that means you have a problem with the operating system. call or go to microsoft help and support online in that case. and RPC server unavailable error has something to do with a network printer. but i believe you setup the printer locally.

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=DownloadDetailAct&fcategoryid=357&modelid=10238 Above is the Canon site with the newest drivers available. Download them and install them. First "delete" the printer from print properties. Unplug the printer from the wall for a few minutes and shutdown the computer. Plug the printer in and reboot the machine. Install the new drivers. You are in a loop. definition of LOOP: see LOOP. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
