When i try to uninstall my lexmark x1190 it comes up printing not finished


Try to clear the Lexmark print queue from pending/stuck print jobs so you can successfully uninstall the Lexmark software/ printer driver. Here's how:
  1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET STOP SPOOLER (this will stop the print spooler service)
  2. Browse to your windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\ folder. You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the time you tried to print - delete these files.
  3. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET START SPOOLER (this will restart the print spooler service)
After successfully clearing the print queue, uninstall the printer software by going to Start menu > Programs > Lexmark 1100 Series folder > Tools > Uninstall. Reboot your pc when prompted.
Hope this helps.

Spooler not running after Lexmark x83 installation on windows XP laptop


From what you're saying the windows print spooler service is not starting following the installation of your printer (and thereby you cannot print i'm assuming)

try the following to start the print spooler service if it is not already running.
Click Start
Right Click My Computer
Click Manage
Click "Services and Applications"
Click Services
Scroll down to "Print Spooler" and double click on it to open up the properties page
where it says "startup type" select automatic from the combo box list
Apply
If the service is NOT running, start it by clicking "start"
click OK

The print spooler service is started now, and **should** work properly. If the spooler is still not starting properly, then you may have a driver issue and i reccommend uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers for your printer.
