Start>Run> type services.msc and click OK.

Double-click the Printer Spooler service, and then change the startup type to Automatic. This sets the Spooler service to start automatically when you restart the computer. Click OK.
look out for spooler or print spooler in services.

Lexmark x5470 drivers won't install with cd or thru Lexmark on line. Using windows vista 32 bit.


Make sure to uninstall the old Lexmark driver before installing the downloaded driver. It should automatically create a print object under "Printers" after installing the driver.

Printer won't print from computer


Try the steps below to clear the print queue and restart your print spooler:
1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET STOP SPOOLER (this will stop the print spooler service)
2. Browse to your windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\ folder. You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the time you tried to print - delete these files.
3. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET START SPOOLER (this will restart the print spooler service)
Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

LexMark X5340 not working!!!


Hi,
What you need to do is the following. First Uninstall completely the Lexmark software and all of its folders. Once you have uninstall everything that has to do with the Lexmark software then restart your computer (Make sure you do this properly otherwise it will not work) Once the computer has come back click the following link http://bit.ly/dd8LMi and download the driver for windows Vista. Once you finished downloading the driver then install it. That should fix your problem. If that does not fix it then try the recommendations on this link http://bit.ly/dko344.

Cannot get Lexmark X5340 driver to install in Vista


Hello

I've had similiar problems with customers printers in the shop. Generally I have found that if I uninstall all the Lexmark drivers and associated software and the USB drivers, then goto Start, run and type CMD (you'll need to have admistrator rights). At the prompt type SFC /scannow. Have the orginal Vista disk handy because it will probably need to install USB drivers. Once this has completed reinstall the drivers that came with the printer (not online). This should solve your problem, now you did eliminate any chance of viruses, malware or spyware interfering?

Delete the printer icon, restart your workstation to see if the error is gone. If so, reinstall the printer driver and set up the printer for your wireless connection.

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.
