Printer spooler service not running


The spooler is not on your printer it is in the Windows folder on your computer and is used to hold documents whilst preparing to print.
Normally this service is set to start automatically and there are a number of reasons why it may of stopped but try this:
Right click on "Computer" in your Menu and then left click on "Manage".
In the page that appears click "Services and applications" and Click "Services"
Navigate down to "Print Spooler" and double click on that line.
A box should appear showing properties of the Spooler.
It should show
"Startup Type = Automatic"
"Service Status = Running"
If neither of these are true then change the Startup type to Automatic
and click on the "Start Button"
The service will then either start or tell you why it cannot start.

Print spooler stopped working


what error message do you get, if it just says the service isn't started then go press with windows key and the r key at the same time. in the run box type services.msc and press enter. scroll down the list until you find print spooler service and right click and click start service, and make sure it's set to automatic.

My printer is sharp and it displayed on the screen fuser temp?


memory leak in spoolsv.exe I have a Windows 2003 Std sp2 server that is my primary print server for my entire company. We have 40+ different printers configured on it.

About 2 months ago, we started having performance issues with the box... the Print Spoooler service apparently has a memory leak and eventually consumes so much memory that the service stops responding. Print jobs accumulate in the queues but never get printed. As soon as we restart the spooler service, the jobs spit right out.

I've changed all of my printer ports to Standard TCP/IP ports per a suggestion I found on google, and installed SP2 per M$ suggestion, but nothing has helped. spoolsv.exe will go from 2MB to almost 500MB of memory in less than 12 hours.

I can use perfmon to monitor the memory usage and such, but so far I haven't found any utility that will identifiy EXACTLY what is causing the spooler service to leak memory like this. There are so many different drivers that use spoolsv.exe, how can I tell which one is the culprit?

Can't reinstall printer- ''print spooler is not working''


If you have the windows disk for it , Save everything important to disks.  Put WIndows  disk into machine and tell it to install. It will find you version and ask if you wish to repair it, Say yes.   If you have Xp pro just "Restore" computer to the date before the problem started. If you have neither one. Save you work and then reinstall everything using your backup disks.
