Spooler service not running

Press the windows key on your keyboard and R at the same time (windows key is between ctrl and alt and has a flag on it usually)

In the run menu type services.msc
In the services menu, scroll down and find print spooler on the right hand pane.

Right click the print spooler service and click start. If the service wont start due to a dependancy uninstall any old lexmark printer software you had (Unless you are still using a lexmark printer)

Hope this helps.

How can I get my spooler to work again?


please follow the below steps

Operation could not be completed. The print spooler service is not running.

1. Press Window key + R to open the Run dialog Start and type services.msc and click OK.

2. 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.

3. Restart the computer and try to install the printer again.

If that doesn't work, the problem could be related to corrupted printer drivers that are installed on the computer.

Try uninstalling all printer software from the computer reboot and make afresh installaiotn of the drivers. This also include PDF writer or faxing software as well.

First step, ( May be your print spooler service is not running )

1. See if you are able to find no printers at all in "printer and faxes" on control panel.
2. If not - go to start->run -> type "services.msc" and hit enter. Locate "Print spooler" service. See if that service is running on not. You might see "Started" in front of that means working. You can right click "print spooler" and restart once and check "printer and faxes" on control panel. If not follow step 2.

step 2:

You can reinstall the MDI printer by doing custom installation of Microsoft Office 2003. To do that follow below instructions
1. Go to Start->Run->Type "appwiz.cpl" and hit enter. This will open up Add Remove program wizard for you.
2. Now locate MS Office installation and click on "Change"
3. Check mark "add or remove feature" and click "next".
4. On the botton of the installation window check mark "choose advanced customization of application" and click "next"
5. Under "Microsoft office" expand "+" sign of "office tools"
6. Locate the object "Microsoft office document imaging". Click the icon and select "not available" and click on "update". This will uninstall the MDI drive.
7. Repeat the steps from point 2 and locate the object "Microsoft office document imaging" click the icon and select "run from my computer" and click on update.

Print spool service is not Running

What makes you think the print spooler is not working? Is it because you get a message saying that it is not working or is it because you cannot print?

If you can stop and start the print spooler that would indicate to me that the spooler is running and you have a different problem. It is probably a corrupt print job, to fix this do the following.

1) stop the spooler
2) go to My computer
3) select the C drive
4) select the windows folder
5) select the system32 folder
6) select the spool folder
7) select the printers folder
8) delete everything in the printers folder
9) restart the spooler
