I believe the print spooler had stoped and needs to restart again. Please try this solution
Go to START MENU Choose Command prompt, right click and run as administrator ( Fow window vista and windows 7) Type the letter "cmd" Type the word "net stop spooler" Exit Go to C drive Choose to Windows Folder Click show content Choose system32 folder Choose spool folder Choose printer And delete all printing jobs pending Again go back to CMD window and type the word "net start spooler" Restart your computer also turn off your printer and switch it on. It will work fine right now
If it does not help you, please let me know to give more advise. Regards
Print spooler not running is not the printer error, it happens when the print spooler service starts working in windows,
For making it enable you dont have to reinstall the drivers for the printer, as print spooler service is for every printer, even if you put another printer the result will be the same
To Enable Print Spooler
Open Control Panel
Go to administrative Tools>Services (For Windows XP Users)
Control Panel\System and Security\Administrative Tools( for windows 7 users)
Find Print Spooler in the list
Right click the service and make it stop, if its already stop set it to Start and then again give prints
Double click on the service and set "Startup type to AUTOMATIC".
You should now be able to get prints from your printer
Now restart your desktop/laptop and check if the service is still working by giving any test print.
Hope it will solve your issue
