I have had spooler problems and lost the HP Solutions Center.
I uninstalled and reinstalled the printer among other things. I got it to print this afternoon. This evening I tried to open the solutions center to try the scanner and align the print heads. I get a response that indicates ther are no HP products. The Photo Center iand Library are there so I am confused. I have spent many hours trying to get an assignment done and printed. Three clues: 1.I use Adobe Pagemaker 7.0.2and Photoshop V. 2. This is a new laptop loaded with Windows Vista. 3. Is is also loaded with Norton 360.
Thanks for the help
I have xp on my computer, and was using my printer just fine. I went to print, and was told that my computer and printer could not communicate. Since this is a wireless set up, I thought I needed to uninstall and reinstall, except my computer will not allow me to reinstall due to a printer spool error. What can I do to fix this?
Re: I have had spooler problems and lost the HP Solutions...
I had many simular issues with my laptop, then it shut off one day and wouldn't come bacl on, after digging through tons of support forums on HP's support page I found that a know bios issue exists for this model laptop. As long as its still running down load the latest bios and flash the laptop. Let me know if this helps

Reboot the computer if the printer is local. Or, type services.msc in run / search. Scroll down to Print Spooler and start by right clicking. You have a bigger problem if this fails to start. Like you may not be an Administrator.
Starting the Print Spooler on a networked printer (at work) is the same, only it must be done by an IT admin on the Print Server.
Here are the steps to get your missing printers back without having to restart the PC -1. Press Windows Key + R to open the run box and type in services.msc.2. The services window will open, in that find Print Spooler and start the service.3. Once you have done that refresh or reopen the printer page from control panel and you will see that all your printers should reappear again. If u r using HP Printer then Resolve Hp Printer

Assumption that installation is completed without any errors.
Now follow the steps to find the reason for getting communication error:
Click on the start menu in that click Control Panel.
Now look for Administrative Tools and open it.
Double-click on Services.
Now go through the list and check for "Print Spooler". It should say "started" under STATUS, and "automatic" under STARTUP TYPE.
If it isn't started, the computer doesn't know what to do when it's trying to send a doc to the printer.
So, right click on the print spooler and select PROPERTIES.
In the drop down box for startup type, select "Automatic" and click apply.
This should work.
If you still face the problem do reinstall, make sure you uninstall the software using the "uninstall" option, either in the control panel, or on the installation CD that came with the printer; don't just delete folders. Then reinstall the software.
Sometimes a file just gets corrupted, for some reason, and this will fix that.
Start the simple route: uninstall and reinstall the printer and its software. If the software is old, head to the printer manufacturer's website and download the latest driver package. Meanwhile, track back to when the print spooler worked successfully. Was there any new software installed that may have caused the problem? A possible update from Windows, perhaps?
Try uninstalling the smartview software to see if network connections and the print spooler are working with the aircard. If that doesn't work then remove the aircard and reinstall it. Test the connections and print spooler again. The procedure works to reset the components. Finally, if that works, then install the smartview software and retest the connections and spooler. Hopefully your system will repond favorably to the above procedure.
I thank you for giving a rating to this solution if it has been helpful.
Spooler depends on the RPC service being running. But you really need to get into event viewer and check for anything related to either RPC or Print Spooler. If you're trying to print to a network printer you could have firewall issues either within Windows or your router. Think about what changed on your system around the time this problem began.
Go to Start, Control Panels, Administrative Tools, Services. Windows 2000: Go to Start, Settings, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services. Right click on the print spooler and select Properties. Click on Dependencies to view a list of all the system components that the print spooler depends on. Under Services, go to each of these dependencies and check the properties. In each case, ensure that the Startup type is set to Automatic, and that the Service status is set to Started.
