Printer spooler services not started when i connect to network printer cannon lbp 2900

There are several ways to resolve printer spooler error, probably because there are many variations of this error.

The error caused by faulty software can be resolved by deleting all the information found in the directory.

Thereafter, navigate to the Control Panel, click on Administrative Tools and then services icon.

Find the service labeled Print Spooler, highlight it and restart the process. If that doesn't work, the program

might be corrupted.

Click on start, then Run. Search for the document labeled services.msc, and this will trigger the opening of another


On this window, scroll down and click "Print Spooler". Check its setting and turn on automatic mode.

Click Okay, and restart the machine. If you're lucky, this might be all you have to do.

Still doesn't work? Navigate to the Add/Remove Programs screen of the Control Panel.

Find the all the software responsible for making the printer run including the drivers, and uninstall them. Be sure

to be thorough about it, or the problem may not be solved.

Download the latest copy of your printer's software from the manufacturer and reinstall it.

Print spooler not running

For XP use the Control Panel then Administrative Tools then Services. Make sure the Print Spooler service is running. If it is, stop it then restart it and try installing your printer again. :)

My printer wont print it has a spooler problem.

To start and stop the print spooler
  1. Open Computer Management.
  2. In the console tree, click Services.
    • Computer Management/Services and Applications/Services
  3. In the details pane, double-click Print Spooler.
  4. Do one of the following depending on the task you want to do:
    Click Stop to stop the service.
    Click Start to start the service.
  • To open Computer Management, click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Computer Management.
  • When you stop the Print Spooler service, it might stop other dependent services.
  • The print spooler runs under the Local Computer system account by default.

Once you get here you should be able to restart the print spooling service.

"Error 1068 Could not start the Printer Spooler on local Computer"

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.
