Print spooler is a program that runs in the background in your computer.

To start, stop or restart the program follow these steps:

  1. Press start
  2. Press run
  3. Type in the run box: services.msc : click OK (without spaces or : marks)
  4. press P a few times to find Print spooler from the listing

What is the status of the service? is it started? stoped? Disabled?

If the service is stoped right click on it and select Start.
If the service is disabled right click on it and select properties then change the start up mode to automatic, then click on start. Apply and OK

the service should be started and you should be able to print again.

ok, so for this, always had an issue with this one,
so, what i did is started the spooler, the way to do this is you have to go into control panel>>>admin. tools>>> services>>>printer spooler>>> and then you have a blue icon on your left where you have to click on the button that says start the spooler, now i recommend you minimize this window,

next step is that you add the printer through the add a printer wizard in most cases the printer should already have the basic driver installed into the computer. and way to add it to to start the add a wizard, click on add a port make sure the box where it reads plug in play is unchecked, so the only icon you have checked is the local port, next you choose the port that is usb001 from here you choose hp>>> then laserjet 1020, let the printer driver install and finally your done.

The issue is with the print spooler. If the operating system is XP then click on start >> run >> type services.msc >> the services window opens, now locate the print spooler and right click on it and select stop(if it is started) then again right click on it and then click on start. Now the spooler service will start, then try installing the all-in-one software.

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.

Mike

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 HP.com 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.

Spooler not running after Lexmark x83 installation on windows XP laptop


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.
Click Start
Right Click My Computer
Click Manage
Click "Services and Applications"
Click Services
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
Apply
If the service is NOT running, start it by clicking "start"
click OK

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.
