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?

Where i could see the printer spooler?


I open the run command you can type: net start spooler
(You will get a message that says the print spooler service has started)
If you still have issues open the run command and type: services.msc
it will display a list, where you can find print spooler.

From there you can right-click on it and set it so it is started and runs automatically.

I still cannot print


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.

PRINTER AND COMPUTER WERE WORKING OK. SUDDENLY WHEN I WANT TO PRINT A MESSAGE SAYS:WINDOS CAN'T OPEN . THE LOCAL PRINT SPOOLER SERVICE IS NOT RUNNING.RESART THE SPOOLER OR RESTART THE MACHINE. WHAT'S THE...


Print spooler is a service (part of OS) which basically sorts out the info to be sent to the printer to perform the printing task.

To turn on in XP go to Control Panel/Admin Too;s/Services (in classic view) or Control Panel/Performance & Mainainance/Admin Tools/Services.

Scroll down to Print spooler and double click. In the box that opens start up type should be automatic. You can also start the service from this box.

I preume Vista will be something similar.

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.

1020 Spooler SubSytem


ok, so for this, always had an issue with this one,
so, what i did is started the spooler, the way to do this is you have to go into control panel>>>admin. tools>>> services>>>printer spooler>>> and then you have a blue icon on your left where you have to click on the button that says start the spooler, now i recommend you minimize this window,

next step is that you add the printer through the add a printer wizard in most cases the printer should already have the basic driver installed into the computer. and way to add it to to start the add a wizard, click on add a port make sure the box where it reads plug in play is unchecked, so the only icon you have checked is the local port, next you choose the port that is usb001 from here you choose hp>>> then laserjet 1020, let the printer driver install and finally your done.

Printing Error


Try this:

1. Power off the printer
2. After re-boot: click start, control panel, printers & faxes and delete the printer.
3. Re-install the printer with the original driver disc.
There are many suggested solutions to spool problems but try this first. If this does not work we'll go to the other solutions.
