Change the spooling format from Enhanced Metafile (EMF) to RAW, and then try to print directly to the printer instead of spooling the print job. To do this: a. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Printers. b. Right-click the printer that you are using, and then click Properties. c. On the Details tab, click Spool Settings. d. Click Print Directly to the Printer. e. In the Spool Data Format box, click RAW. f. Click OK, click OK again, and then close the Printers dialog box.

solution 2
Spooling allows the computer to store the print job temporarily on the hard disk drive before sending it to the printer. This allows for the print jobs to be processed faster and allows the computer to be used as the computer is printing.
Cause: This issue can be caused by any of the below possibilities.

  1. Third-party program or TSR being loaded.
  2. Issue with or corrupt printer driver.
  3. Third-party driver being loaded.
  4. System contains data errors or issue with files.
Solution: Third-party program or TSR loaded Ensure that no third-party programs are running in the background by End Tasking all TSRs running on the computer. Information and steps on how to do this can be found on document CHTSR.
Issue with or corrupt printer driver Download the latest printer drivers from your printer manufacturer's web site and reinstall the printer drivers.
A listing of printer manufactures and links to their driver pages can be found on our printer driver page.
Third-party driver being loaded It is possible that a driver related to another program may be loading as the computer is starting that is causing this issue. To determine this, users who are running Windows 95 or Windows 98 try the below steps.
  1. Click Start / Run
  2. Type command and click ok.
  3. Type:

    cd\ <press enter>
    ren autoexec.bat <press enter>
    ren config.sys <press enter>
    exit <press enter>
  4. Once the autoexec.bat and config.sys have been renamed, reboot the computer and see if issue persists.

You dont have drivers for Deskjet F2100. You need to connect the printer via USB cable and the printer will be ready to print. To SCan a file, you need to use paintbrush or any other image application tool.

Hi my printer will not print. it is saying printer spool error.

> spool error

S.P.O.O.L. == Simultaneous Peripheral Output On Line

The "spool" is a combination of disk-space on your 'C:' drive, and software to "accept" the print-image (as fast as MS Word can create the print-image), and save the print-image to disk-space,
so that MS Word can report "print completed", so that you can use MS Word, instead of waiting until the physical printing has completed.

Then, the printer-spooling software will read from the print-image file, and send it to the printer, only as fast as the printer will accept it.
