What is "Printer spooler service "?


You typically install drivers AFTER clicking ADD A PRINTER, not before. And you do it only at the request of the computer! If it is a plug and play printer and if both your computer and printer are recent models, then simply plug in the USB cord and the computer should recognize the printer automatically.

If it is not plug and play, you will have to install drivers but you do that only after clicking ADD A PRINTER. And after clicking Add a printer, you wait for the computer to prompt you for the drivers. Choose to load it from a disc (if you have such) or from where you downloaded it to your computer (from the manufacturer's website.)

If you have no printer symbol, the printer has not been recognized by the computer. The spooler service is a Windows service that must be running before a printer can operate. But it is unlikely that you have to manually start that service! It is more likely that printer has not been recognized because the drivers have not yet been installed properly. This is why you get your error message about a spooler not running. The spooler process will run only after the printer has been recognized and that requires proper installation of the drivers.

You might go to the manufacturer's website and download the drivers for your particular printer and operating system from there.

Sometimes, the difference between success and failure is merely just when you attached the USB cord between the printer and the computer during installation! In some instances, you may have to wait to attach the cord until you have run all the installation software or when the computer prompts you. I suspect you will not presently find the printer listed in devices in device manager.

Good luck!

Hi, I can suggest you to add your device manually.... Please you try this make sure that your computer is able to detect other bluetooth devices and also that your printer is turned on.

How do I hook my computer to a Toshiba e-studio 3100c so I can print from compact discs?


That printer originally sold for $27 THOUSAND dollars.
At that price, it should be a "networked" printer.
So, connect your computer to the same network,
and use "Add Printers" to add this networked-printer to your list of printers.
Then, when you "print" (from Adobe Reader, or from MS Word, or from Microsoft Picture Viewer) you can select this printer as your "target" printer.

Hello, HP's printer technicians screwed up my new


That's pretty crazy! I would have told you to turn the printer off, and unplug it from power. Same thing with the computer. Then follow a few basic procedures.

Better grab a cup of coffee, this is going to be a long one.

I have no idea what changes, the 'tech' implemented on your computer. Would have to undo what the 'tech' did step by step.

I do know one thing, however. Using the Restoration Disk/s, is not going to fix Adobe CS4.

We'll have to go step by step. I can only guide you if you have Windows Vista. (The HP Pavilion Elite e9180t is also offered with Windows 7)

Ready?

Printer:

Printer off, unplugged from power. USB cable unplugged from computer side.

You need to go to Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs.
(Left-click on the Windows start button, then click on Control Panel. In Control Panel click on Add/Remove Programs)

When Add/Remove Programs loads, find the HP OfficeJet software listed. Go to the right, and left-click on Remove.

If it asks, 'Do you wish to restart your computer?', the answer is NO.
Close Add/Remove Programs. Close Control Panel. Go back to your desktop screen.
Shut your computer down normally.

Unplug the computer from power. Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of at least Five seconds. Let go of the Power On button.
Do this procedure two more times.

What you are doing is clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS back to the factory default settings. (No, do not take the CMOS battery out)

Now plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute. Turn the computer on. Let Windows load all the way.

Install the installation CD for the OfficeJet printer, into your DVD drive. Install the software. If it asks you to restart your computer, go ahead, and do so.

After Windows has fully loaded again, plug the USB cable of the printer into the computer. Turn the printer on. You should get a message out of your system tray.
'Found New Hardware', and perhaps another one,
'Found Officejet printer'.

You should now have your printer back online.

Quicktime:
Go to Add/Remove Programs, Click on Change.
In the options given, click on Repair.
If this doesn't do it, go back to Add/Remove Programs, and - Remove, Quicktime. Now go to Apple - Quicktime - Download, and download the newest version for Windows Vista.

(If you need help with this, let me know)

Will add more in additional comments section.

Printer wont connect to the computer


Go to add a printer and tell it you want to add a local printer. It will probably fail. You will then have to select the manufacture and the model or browse to where the drivers are installed.

No hp files on computer and computer doesnt recognize printer the printer is a hp psc 2355 all in one printer


Hello Ke7mmm,

First, try a different USB port, and make sure all connections between computer and printer are secure.
Next, try to download the latest software/driver from your manufacturer's website. Here is a LINK.
Once you have reinstalled the latest software/driver, restart the system and see..

If that doesnt work, you may have to manually add a printer through the printers and faxes >add a printer section in Control Printer. Hope this helps..

Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here. Please do not assign a rating until you feel your problem is resolved. I will try my best to help you further if need be.

If you are satisfied with my solution or have no other questions, please close the problem by assigning a FIXYA rating for my solution. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Cheers!
