Printer spooler service not running


The spooler is not on your printer it is in the Windows folder on your computer and is used to hold documents whilst preparing to print.
Normally this service is set to start automatically and there are a number of reasons why it may of stopped but try this:
Right click on "Computer" in your Menu and then left click on "Manage".
In the page that appears click "Services and applications" and Click "Services"
Navigate down to "Print Spooler" and double click on that line.
A box should appear showing properties of the Spooler.
It should show
"Startup Type = Automatic"
"Service Status = Running"
If neither of these are true then change the Startup type to Automatic
and click on the "Start Button"
The service will then either start or tell you why it cannot start.

I cannot print from my computer. There seems to be printing locked in my printer .this is blocking me from printing any documents from on line


Until you are part of domain network or nothing new installed related to firewall printing might not be blocked. You can check for 2 things to make sure software side is not of problem
1. Printer driver is installed ( to check go to start->settings->printer and faxes and see if the printer driver is listing there or not, if it is there make sure that one is your default printer)
2. Print spooler service is running or not. ( If you are not able to find any drivers in printer and faxes, then for sure you print spooler service is not running, to start print spooler click on start->go to run-> type "services.msc" and hit enter, on the right side of service window search for print spooler service, double click and click on start to start the spooler service.

If above doesnt solve the problem, check followings

1.Make sure all cables are connected proper and there are no loose ends on both side, printer and computer side.
2. Make sure there are no errors on printer ( led's indicating error message)
3. If in network, make sure proper IP address and proper driver is installed and you are able to reach the ip address by pinging. ( goto run->type cmd>hit enter> type ping followed by ip address, it should generate reply )

Print spooler is missing


The Windows print spooler service is dependent on other services that need to be also running.
Dependant on your Windows version the solution is different.

Please read these Microsoft bulletins, to resolve your spooler not running ( or as you say "found")

Hi i have aprob my computer say the printer spooler cannot running error 1068


Check for other Service Dependencies A 1068 is a service dependency error. Print Spooler can't start because it thinks a service it depends on is not running.

shortcut: start-run-"services.msc"

Go into services and check its dependencies, it should just be the RPC service, which you shouldn't be able to stop, check that RPC is running

Double click print spooler and click the dependencies tab. See if there are any other dependencies set besides rpc. If so you will want to find them in services and make sure they are set to automatic and are running (will probably need to start them).

Then try to start "Print Spooler" service, should work. May need to reinstall printer drivers then.

PRINT SPOOLER WILL NOT START AUTOMATICALLY OR MANUALLY. I GET MESSAGE ERROR 1068.


I had the same issue a while back, I used the following procedure to fix it.


Click the Start button, and then click Run.
The Run window appears.
Type services.msc, and then click OK.
Locate Print Spooler in the list of services, right-click the service, and then left-click start.
Locate Lexbce Server in the list of services, right-click the service, and then left-click start
Locate RPC services in the list of services, right-click the service, and then left-click start
If you get any error like 1608, follow these steps:
Right-click "Print Spooler" and select "Properties".
Click on the "Recovery" tab and change all 3 drop-down boxes to "Restart The Service".
Make sure the 2 text boxes underneath say "1" in them.
Click Ok until you are back at the Services window, close it , perform the same for Lexbce Server and RPC services as well. Then restart RPC services, then Lexbce Server and last step is to restart the Print Spooler service. Print a test page and check for it.

Can't reinstall printer- ''print spooler is not working''


If you have the windows disk for it , Save everything important to disks.  Put WIndows  disk into machine and tell it to install. It will find you version and ask if you wish to repair it, Say yes.   If you have Xp pro just "Restore" computer to the date before the problem started. If you have neither one. Save you work and then reinstall everything using your backup disks.

Print spooler


To prevent the spooler from stopping, which is usually caused by invalid printer drivers left on a computer.

Go into "Printers and Faxes" delete all printers which no longer exist by right click --> delete

To restart the spooler :-

click start --> run
type net spooler start click ok
or
click start --> run --> services.msc --> click ok
scroll down to print spooler --> right click on it and select start

Stuck print on HP Deskjet F380


Did you restart the computer? I know, a little obvious. But restarting should clear out the print queue.

I think what you're thinking of is typing services.msc at run. There you can stop the print spooler.

You can also get to 'services' by going to control panel > administrative options > services.
