Follow these steps to correct the issue:
Go to Start > Run and type in services.msc then press Enter.
2. In the window that opens find "Print Spooler" on the right
3. Right-click "Print Spooler" and select "Properties".
4. Click on the "Recovery" tab and change all 3 drop-down boxes to "Restart The Service".
5. Make sure the 2 text boxes underneath say "1" in them.
6. Click Ok until you are back at the Services window, close it and you're good to go.
7. Go back into the properties of the "Print Spooler" tab and be sure to click Start to restart the Print Spooler service and it will restart the service immediately.
You're all set! Now when ever your Print Spooler craps out, it will automatically reset itself.

go back to your services where you start the print spooler. open the dependency tab. there it will tell you what other services the print spooler needs to have running. check them and if any are disabled change them to auto and restart them. reboot and you should be OK.
I appreciate the opportunity to help you. Try the following:
Check dependency services on Print Spooler ================================ 1.Click "Start", input "services.msc" (without quotation marks) to Start Search bar and press "Enter". 2.Double click the “Print Spooler” service. 3.Choose “Dependencies” Tab and remember the services name. 4.In the service list window, find the dependency services and try to start them. 5.Please try to start the “Print Spooler” service again.
See if this helps. If it does, please fill in the rating of my service to you. Thanks for using Fixya.com
From what you're saying the windows print spooler service is not starting following the installation of your printer (and thereby you cannot print i'm assuming)
try the following to start the print spooler service if it is not already running.
Right Click My Computer
Click "Services and Applications"
Scroll down to "Print Spooler" and double click on it to open up the properties page
where it says "startup type" select automatic from the combo box list
If the service is NOT running, start it by clicking "start"
The print spooler service is started now, and **should** work properly. If the spooler is still not starting properly, then you may have a driver issue and i reccommend uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers for your printer.
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.
This is JISHKUMAR, U need to click on dependencies tab.this u will get it when u double click on print spooler.just look which are the services under dependencies..whatever services you will find just go to that services and start them and then start print spooler service. this will 101% solve your problem
A 1068 is a service dependency error. Print Spooler can't start because it thinks a service it depends on is not running.
click Start, then click run. Type in "services.msc" without the " " marks
Go into services and check its
dependencies, it should just be the RPC service, which you shouldn't be
able to stop, check that RPC is running
Double click print
spooler and click the dependencies tab. See if there are any other
dependencies set besides rpc. If so you will want to find them in
services and make sure they are set to automatic and are running (will
probably need to start them).
Then try to start "Print Spooler" service, should work. May need to reinstall printer drivers then.
