My printer spooler does not work and I need it to be able to use any printer on my computer. Both of my laptops have the same problem that states that the printer spooler is not working or on and needs to be turned on before printer can be instaalled. What do I do? Is this a glitch with Windows Vista or HP?

I have an Advent 5302 laptop with Windows Vista. The printer is a Lexmark X5150 All in One. It was installed ocrrectly and functioned properly. Suddenly it stopped. So I uninstalled and reinstalled. Now I am told the printer spooler is not working. I have tried various suggestions from Microsoft online and still it does not correct the fault. I have followed the steps you have suggested to start the spooler manually and still nothing materialises. What next? Appreciate your asssisance. Am sure there is a simple explanation/solution. Thanks Andy , London

You can manually start the printer spooler...

click the Start button and, in the Start Search area - type in compmgmt.msc then hit the ENTER key. This starts Computer Management.

On the left side, go to the bottom and expand the Services and Applications area. Click on Services.

On the right side, scroll down to Printer Spooler, right click it and click Properties.

Change the Startup Type to Automatic and then click the START button.

If this fails to start, this may be caused by a recently installed program.

Please report the results of the above suggestion.

Printer Spooler error 1068


Hi jbaratta,

This sounds like a software problem (in other words, your printer is not the issue). Here's what I suggest:

1) Save whatever you were attempting to print, and restart the computer. Try printing it again.
2) If it doesn't work, try uninstalling the software for your printer, and then re-install it. In the event you don't have the software handy, you can download the driver from this website:

If it still doesn't work, please let me know, and I'll be happy to offer some more ideas. Hope this helps!

Kind regards,

Both power & feed lights flash


Information gathered: Basically the printer carrier has stalled.
Lexmark documentation states that you should turn off your printer and wait a few seconds and turn the printer back on.
Restarting the spooler will sometimes do the trick as well.
Go to start, run
type: <cmd> without <>
Command prompt will open up.
Type: net stop spooler
The spooler will say it stopped successfully.
Type net start spooler
The spooler will say it started successfully.
Hope this helps!
