Question about Epson CX8400 All-In-One InkJet Printer
My computer closed down and I took it to the computer guys. On getting it back my HP printer would not work I went into my computer and there is no icon for a printer. I cannot add a printer because it says print spooler not working. .I went back to ther "guys" and told them what was going on. they said that it should not have happened and downloaded a thingy that would allow me to use the printer. It downloads but will not work. I have gone into your site and found i can download from HP and have started to do this. I have also recieved an error 1068 while i was looking at ways to correct my computer. Regcure did nothing to help. why does the printer spooler stop working and how can I fix this rotten problem, last exam to do and print out - so frustrating!!! Also computer freezes at times as well.
I have a new HP Printer C4250 & I tried to install & run it on my Sony VAIO GRV 550 Laptop computer running Windows XP. I got the message from the HP Photosmart All-in-one series Printer installer saying the Installation cannot continue - The Spooler Service is stopped and must be running for the installation to continue. Click fix to have the Installer start the service (however that does not work). Then it says Service: Spooler Manufacturer: Microsoft Description: Loads files to memory for later printing Version: 0.0.0.0
Another message says Cannot install this hardware: HPPhotosmart C4200 series An error occurred during the installation of the device The RPC server is unavailable Click Finish to close the Found New Hardware Wizard.
I have no idea what the RPC server is or why the Print Spooler seems to be corrupt. I've been told I need to delete my print spooler and re-install it. Does this sound right? Why are so many people having problems with their print spoolers, even without the dreaded Vista? Was it a virus that made them stop working? You can email me at email@example.com.

print spooler not working rpc service unavailable error 1068
I'm on windows XP OS
I am having a similar problem and have been online all night needing a solution FAST.
I used to have a lexmark printer/drivers, which I hear cause the 1068 error.
I removed all those drivers.
In the "Services" window, I goto "Print Spooler"
If I attempt to start the service I get "Error 1068: The depedancy service or group failed to start"
Under "Print Spooler" properties / Dependancies Tab - upon clicking I get an error:
<Null>: No Such Interface Supported
From what I can see, I need a default RPC dependancy to be in there? I've set all the configurations to "Automatic" and recoverys to "Restart the Service"
I get nothing.
I also need to mention, I occasionally get an error upon starting windows XP, which says something along the lines of system32/services.exe error; restarting System in 1:00 (then it counts down and shuts off PC)
I really need this printer working tonight.
Thanks in advance.

Hi! Print Spooler is actually a service for your Operating system-
Click on start and click on run
in the open box type in services.msc and your services local window should open, scroll down and look for print spooler, highlight it and do a right click and on the dropdown menu left click on stop and it will go to a process of stopping the service and then right click back and click on start. if you get an error message about print spooling or spooler, then that means you have a problem with the operating system. call or go to microsoft help and support online in that case. and RPC server unavailable error has something to do with a network printer. but i believe you setup the printer locally.
You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

to make spooling work its necessary to make it work
this is the procedure .if you do this it will work properly. till it is not done it will just ignore printing
1)click the start in the left sice of your computer screen
2)go to control pannel
3)click performance and maintainence
5)click data execution prevention
6)turn on DEP for essential windows program and services only.
7)click the spooling services a tick mark sign will appear beside that means it has enabled.

Unplug HP 1022n printer.
In command line >> net stop "print spooler"
In command line >> net start "print spooler"
(Reason for command line: Service normally times out while stopping in services list)
Open regedit and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER --> Software --> Microsoft --> Windows NT --> CurrentVersion --> PrinterPorts
Deleted HP 1022n printer there
Open regedit and went to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE--> Software --> Microsoft --> Windows NT --> CurrentVersion --> PrinterPorts
Deleted HP 1022n printer there
Went back to Printers and Faxes page. File --> Server Properties --> Drivers tab
Deleted HP 1022n print driver
Go to HP.com and downloaded the driver from website
Plugged printer back into docking station
In Printers and Faxes --> Add Printer --> Local Printer Attached to this computer --> Unchecked Automatically detect and install my Plug and Play printer
Name queue whatever you would like, share printer if you want. Loaded driver that you downloaded from HP. Finish install.

Just go to your Server or Desktop PC and enable the RPC service (Remote Procedure Call)
Right click in "My computer" icon, from the manu select "Manage" then go to "Services and Applications" and expand that, after that select "Services" you will find that services in the right pane, just click in "Start"
