Go to 'start' -> 'Run' and type "services.msc" in the box.
This opens the services console.
Look for the entry "Print Spooler".
In the left pane is an option to restart this service. If not, double-click the name "Print Spooler" and start the service from there.

Windows could not start the spooler service on local computer when trying to connect hp c309a printer


If you the print spooler isn't working, you can either manually turn it off and on by going into your control panel - Administrative Tools - Services - Print Spooler - Then click the restart button.

The other easy option which usually works is just restarting your computer. This will restart your print spooler as well.

Hope this helps! :)

go back to your services where you start the print spooler. open the dependency tab. there it will tell you what other services the print spooler needs to have running. check them and if any are disabled change them to auto and restart them. reboot and you should be OK.
