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!

Have E Machine ET1161-05 trying to install Kodak ESP6150 computer does not find printer


While installing the printer just switch off the printer and try to install the printer driver completely, When the software will ask you to connect the printer then only switch on the printer. If this way still you are getting the same problem then connect the printer in other usb port or use different USB cable

How to install the printer


Install a printer.


There are several ways to connect a printer to your computer. Which option you choose depends on the device itself, and whether you're at home or at the office.

Always consult the information that came with your model for specific instructions.


Watch this video to learn how to install a printer (1:40) b9f5cdc8-106a-4599-bc11-9845533e5ef6.jpg


Local printers

The most common way to install a printer is to connect it directly to your computer. This is known as a local printer.

If your printer is a universal serial bus (USB) model, Windows should automatically detect it and begin installation when you plug it in.

If you're installing a wireless printer that connects to your computer over a wireless network (Wi???Fi), you can use the Add a device wizard to install the printer. For instructions, see Connect to Bluetooth and other wireless or network devices.

If it's an older model that connects using the serial or parallel port, you might have to install it manually.

HOW DO I RESTART MY ACER LAPTOP


  • 1

    Connect the host computer (the computer that will be connected via wire to the printer) to the printer using the provided USB cable. Insert the printer software CD into the disc drive and click the "Install" button when it appears on-screen. Click "Continue" at the bottom of the next window.

  • 2

    Click "Yes" when asked whether the host computer will be sharing the printer. Give both the host computer and the printer a network name that will be used to connect to the other computers when prompted to do so. Continue to follow the on-screen instructions until the installation process is complete.

  • 3

    Go to a different computer on the network and insert the printer software CD into the disc drive. Click the "Install" button when it appears on screen. Select the "Network" option on the screen marked "Connect Your Printer."

  • 4

    Enter in network names of both the host computer and the printer into the dialog boxes in the next window. Continue to follow the on-screen instructions that will prompt you to begin the installation process. The installation process should take less than five minutes to complete. Click "Finish" once the software downloaded from the CD is complete. The printer will now be available to both computers on the network. Repeat these steps to enable another computer to work through the same network.

    I need to connect a 34oo series lexmark printer to a dell comp. xp


    Not sure how much I can help you.

    *Turn computer off.
    *Plug printer into a port on the back of your computer. There are very few ports so you should be able to find one that makes your printer plug. Plug printer into power strip/outlet.
    *Turn computer back on.
    *Keep printer off for now. During installation it should tell you to turn the printer on.
    *Put the CD that came with the printer into the cd/dvd drive. A menu should appear. You want to "Install" or "Setup" your printer. Something along those lines. Follow the instruction from there.
    *After successful installation of the printer restart the computer.

    That is as basic as I can make it. I hope this helps.
    Thanks.

    Printer will not work with new computor


    Be sure that your printer is compatible with your new computer
    You have to install the printer on the new computer in order to get your printer working
    Run the installation CD or download the printer program from the internet.

    ***********************************************************************

    If you already have your printer installed and it is not working

    Try doing this
    disconnect printer from computer
    cancel documents in queue
    if using a straight USB connection, delete all instances of printer. else remove duplicate printer icons.
    reboot & reconnect printer (swap cables if not detected)

    I can not get my printer to work. I went from xp to vista and my printer and computer do not see each other. When trying to install the printer the message states that my spooler is not running as well....


    Vista has its problems with drivers. If you can get on the internet dowlad and install the Vista drivers for the model of printer you have. Also you can go to control panel and delete this printer out and shut your computer off. Plug printer in and turn the computer on. If it is a plug and play printer the computer should find it and install. You should get a copy of the install disc. Good luck

    The computer can not communicate to the printer after installing the software.


    Did you install the software first, and then plug in the printer? Or did you connect the printer and then install the software? For most newer USB printers, you need to install the software before you plug the printer into the computer, then at a certain point, their software (not Windows) tells you when to connect the printer.
