Hi Jim,

This sounds like a software problem on your computer's end. 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, andthen re-install it. In the event you don't have the software handy, youcan download the driver from this website:

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

I have installed hp photosmart and get an error message '' restart print spooler error 1068'' I have tried everything but cannot restart my printer spooler.


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.

Sounds like your print spooler isn't running. If a reboot doesn't help go to Start>Run type in services.msc and press enter. Scroll in the window services for print spooler, right click and Start. Then check you printers.

Hi i have aprob my computer say the printer spooler cannot running error 1068


Check for other Service Dependencies A 1068 is a service dependency error. Print Spooler can't start because it thinks a service it depends on is not running.

shortcut: start-run-"services.msc"

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.

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.

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.
