Print spooler not running is not the printer error, it happens when the print spooler service starts working in windows,
For making it enable you dont have to reinstall the drivers for the printer, as print spooler service is for every printer, even if you put another printer the result will be the same
To Enable Print Spooler
Open Control Panel
Go to administrative Tools>Services (For Windows XP Users)
Control Panel\System and Security\Administrative Tools( for windows 7 users)

Right click the service and make it stop, if its already stop set it to Start and then again give prints
Double click on the service and set "Startup type to AUTOMATIC".
You should now be able to get prints from your printer
Now restart your desktop/laptop and check if the service is still working by giving any test print.

If your print spooler service is not running, then follow the below steps to get it working :
Step 1 : * Start > run > services.msc > ok * Select the service name called print spooler from the list. * Check the status on the print spooler service, if it is stopped, then right click and select start or restart. * Then the spooler service will start working....
Step 2 : ( NOTE :USE THIS STEP ONLY WHEN YOUR STEP 1 DOESN'T WORK ) In this case, we assume that the print spooler service is gone bad and we would have to recreate the spooler service.
* Start > run > cmd > ok * Type: sc delete spoolsv (this will delete the corrupted spooler for us to create a new print spooler) * Reboot the system and after rebooting the computer back.
* Start > run > cmd > ok
* Type: sc create spoolsv (this will create a new print spooler service) * Reboot the system and this time the print spooler service is a new and fresh spooler and it should work normal and perfectly.
First uninstal old drivers then install again. Then go to start menu then type in run "services.msc" then press enter then you can seee right pane check there you find Print Spooler just double click on it then set stratup type as automatic then click on depndancy tab then set restart the service . then apply and ok.
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.
I appreciate the opportunity to help you. Try the following:
Check dependency services on Print Spooler ================================ 1.Click "Start", input "services.msc" (without quotation marks) to Start Search bar and press "Enter". 2.Double click the “Print Spooler” service. 3.Choose “Dependencies” Tab and remember the services name. 4.In the service list window, find the dependency services and try to start them. 5.Please try to start the “Print Spooler” service again.
