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

My computer closed down and I took it to the computer guys. On getting it back my HP printer would not work I went into my computer and there is no icon for a printer. I cannot add a printer because it says print spooler not working. .I went back to ther "guys" and told them what was going on. they said that it should not have happened and downloaded a thingy that would allow me to use the printer. It downloads but will not work. I have gone into your site and found i can download from HP and have started to do this. I have also recieved an error 1068 while i was looking at ways to correct my computer. Regcure did nothing to help. why does the printer spooler stop working and how can I fix this rotten problem, last exam to do and print out - so frustrating!!! Also computer freezes at times as well. I have a new HP Printer C4250 & I tried to install & run it on my Sony VAIO GRV 550 Laptop computer running Windows XP. I got the message from the HP Photosmart All-in-one series Printer installer saying the Installation cannot continue - The Spooler Service is stopped and must be running for the installation to continue. Click fix to have the Installer start the service (however that does not work). Then it says Service: Spooler Manufacturer: Microsoft Description: Loads files to memory for later printing Version:
Another message says Cannot install this hardware: HPPhotosmart C4200 series An error occurred during the installation of the device The RPC server is unavailable Click Finish to close the Found New Hardware Wizard.
I have no idea what the RPC server is or why the Print Spooler seems to be corrupt. I've been told I need to delete my print spooler and re-install it. Does this sound right? Why are so many people having problems with their print spoolers, even without the dreaded Vista? Was it a virus that made them stop working? You can email me at
David ZenDoc
same printer spooler stopped as ZenDoc's issue...HP techs unable to help after many attempts... both printer CD and the HP driver download get no further than printer spooler stopped, FIX and FIX ALL do not work...can not add a printer, no printer icon to restart...msconfig does not's been months now with only the copier function working..don't want to have to buy a new microsoft XP installation CD?..XP Media Center Edition 2005 was pre-installed, no CD given at purchase...not computer literate enough to fool with Registry...

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

I'm on windows XP OS
I am having a similar problem and have been online all night needing a solution FAST.
I used to have a lexmark printer/drivers, which I hear cause the 1068 error.
I removed all those drivers.

In the "Services" window, I goto "Print Spooler"
If I attempt to start the service I get "Error 1068: The depedancy service or group failed to start"

Under "Print Spooler" properties / Dependancies Tab - upon clicking I get an error:

Service Dependancies
<Null>: No Such Interface Supported

From what I can see, I need a default RPC dependancy to be in there? I've set all the configurations to "Automatic" and recoverys to "Restart the Service"

I get nothing.
I also need to mention, I occasionally get an error upon starting windows XP, which says something along the lines of system32/services.exe error; restarting System in 1:00 (then it counts down and shuts off PC)

I really need this printer working tonight.
Thanks in advance.

Unplug HP 1022n printer.

In command line >> net stop "print spooler"
In command line >> net start "print spooler"

(Reason for command line: Service normally times out while stopping in services list)

Open regedit and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER --> Software --> Microsoft --> Windows NT --> CurrentVersion --> PrinterPorts
Deleted HP 1022n printer there
Open regedit and went to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE--> Software --> Microsoft --> Windows NT --> CurrentVersion --> PrinterPorts
Deleted HP 1022n printer there

Went back to Printers and Faxes page. File --> Server Properties --> Drivers tab
Deleted HP 1022n print driver

Go to and downloaded the driver from website

Plugged printer back into docking station

In Printers and Faxes --> Add Printer --> Local Printer Attached to this computer --> Unchecked Automatically detect and install my Plug and Play printer
Name queue whatever you would like, share printer if you want. Loaded driver that you downloaded from HP. Finish install.

Just go to your Server or Desktop PC and enable the RPC service (Remote Procedure Call)
Right click in "My computer" icon, from the manu select "Manage" then go to "Services and Applications" and expand that, after that select "Services" you will find that services in the right pane, just click in "Start"

Hp laserjet m1522f error 5 turn off and on

Hi, Error 5 is a Scanner error. When turning the printer on, have the lid up so you can watch the scanner movement. Does it move smoothly? It should go through a warm up and you should be able to watch the scanner movement. If there is a problem with the scanner, there isn't a lot you could do except. The service manual says the scanner assembly should be replaced. If it was my printer, I would try to take a closer look at the scanner assembly and check to see if the scanner unit is bound up somewhere, or maybe a drop of 3 in 1 oil on the scanner rails. Let us know what happens.

Prinnter not printing but showing &#39;put custom in manual tray&#39;

There is still a print job in the queue. Place a sheet so it prints or kill the job.

Open Printers and Faxes. Open printer. Highlight jobs and Right click > Cancel, or Documents > Cancel.
For those stubborn jobs, Right click My Computer > Manage. Choose Services and Applications > Services > Print Spooler. Right click and stop. Then start. This may have to be done from the Print Server if it's network printer. Contact IT to kill.

Laser printer makes light clicking noise when idle

When idle is potentially the fuser unit, after heating and cooling. However the print quality issue associated with the clicking sound could indicate an electrical issue. The HVPS maybe faulty causing the print quality issue (due to dependant parts) and the electrical click. In any case I would recommend calling Brother and finding the nearest authorised service agent.

How does the bulb look? Is it bright or kind of dim. The bulb warming error is designed to halt use of the machine until the scanner bulb reaches the correct output level. As these are basically a flourescent tube, they will dim over time and at a certain point they will not generate enough light to enable proper scanning. If the bulb is dim, it will require replacement.

HP printer psc 2210 all in one

Chances are that you didn't lock down the scanner when you moved the unit. You can attempt to open the unit and move the scanner bar manually to reset it. HPs are very difficult beasts when it comes to their power up check out. It must be fully functional...including all work in most cases. Good luck.
