Go to Printers and Faxs in your start menu. Look and see if your printer is listed. If not choose "Add a Printer" on the left side of the window and go through the steps to install the printer. Let me know if this works.

    If you go through the Faxs and Printers procces then you really won't need the disk. Usually XP already has the driver for the printer. Hope this helps some more.

I'm having a problem with my printer, It a Canon Pixma MG2100. I put the cd in the drive and it downloads, but it come back saying about a spooler, what the hick is a spooler for a printer, what c


It is most likely referring to the Windows print spooler. I would uninstall the software installed so far and go to the Canon website and download the drivers specifically for your operating system. This can sometimes occur when you have drivers for an older Windows version and are installing them on a new Win7/Win8 machine. Also check compatibility some printers are not compatible with the newer operating systems.

Tip

Troubleshooting Printer Spooling Problems


At its most basic definition a printer spooler retrieves the data for a requested print task and performs the required print even if it is not printing multiple print jobs. The simplest explanation, and where you should start, is in the task manager. Under "processes" in the task manager look for a file called spoolso.exe or spoolsv.exe; if these files are not present it simply means that the process has been stopped and needs to be restarted. This can be done by running "net start spooler" command. In the start menu bring click on the "run" option and type the command in the box prompt. Sometimes a faulty printer driver is the cause. This is hard to determine in any sort of certainty, but a simple reinstallation of the drives is simple and easy enough for virtually any user. Uninstall and reinstall your printer driver; if the printer works after the reinstallation you are safe and ready to print. The next step would be to check if old printer drivers are still installed on the computer. These can sometimes conflict with each other allowing an old print driver to be the spooler and not the proper driver for the current printer. Remember to clear the printer's queue before removing the old drivers. A last attempt at solving printer spooler problems is to manually delete the files in the printer driver. These will all be either .shd or .spl file types and are located in the temporary directories of your printer spooler subsystem. Whatever you do, do not delete the spooler subsystem app. This can cause even worse printer problems and in rare cases can cause major printer failures and errors. Should none of these work or solve the problem, it is in your best interest to seek a professional in the matter of solving the problem. Most printer spooler problems can be solved by the user in a few short steps.

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

window.

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.

I have a HP Laser jet 1020. I am getting a spooler error / spooler must shut down on start up. I have downloaded software including Driver Robot that is suppose to update drivers etc. to no avail Last...


Hi,

I believe you have installed the driver from the CD (you did not mention the operating system). Hence I recommend to install the UPD (universal Printer Driver) PCL6 for your machine.
Remember to disconnect the computer and connect the printer only when the installation wizard asks you to do so.

To download the driver go to http://www.hp.com/go/upd

This will solve the spooler issue, also follow these instructions
Start>run>services.msc>print spooler>right click, stop and then start again

Rgds,
Nikhil

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:

http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi

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,
