Hello mmcda50854,

This sounds like that the print spooler need to be started.

For Windows XP: click the "Start" button, choose and right click on "My Computer" and choose "Manage" (this will take you to the Computer Management window and look for the Services link on the left pane click on it and browse and double click for the Print Spooler on the right pane. The Print Spooler Properties window will open and change the "Startup Type" to automatic (if not choosen already). Browse down a bit and look what the "Service Status" is currently set to. If the "Service Status" is "Stopped" then, click on the "Start" button. If the "Serive Status" is "Started", then click on the "Stop" button, wait a bit, then click on the "Start" button. After, make sure you click on the "Apply" button first, then the "Ok" button. After, just x out the window and restart your computer. After, go ahead and install your HP printer again. This should fix your issue.

Good luck.

I have installed hp photosmart and get an error message '' restart print spooler error 1068'' I have tried everything but cannot restart my printer spooler.


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.

hi! Print Spooler is actually a service for your Operating system-
Try this

Click on start and click on run
in the open box type in services.msc and your services local window should open, scroll down and look for print spooler, highlight it and do a right click and on the dropdown menu left click on stop and it will go to a process of stopping the service and then right click back and click on start. if you get an error message about print spooling or spooler, then that means you have a problem with the operating system. call or go to microsoft help and support online in that case. and RPC server unavailable error has something to do with a network printer. but i believe you setup the printer locally.

There are several ways to resolve printer spooler error, probably because there are many variations of this error. The error caused by faulty software can be resolved by deleting all the information found in the directory. Thereafter, navigate to the Control Panel, click on Administrative Tools and then services icon. Find the service labeled Print Spooler, highlight it and restart the process. If that doesn’t work, the program might be corrupted. Click on start, then Run. Search for the document labeled services.msc, and this will trigger the opening of another window. On this window, scroll down and click “Print Spooler”. Check its setting and turn on automatic mode. Click Okay, and restart the machine. If you’re lucky, this might be all you have to do. Still doesn’t work? Navigate to the Add/Remove Programs screen of the Control Panel. Find the all the software responsible for making the printer run including the drivers, and uninstall them. Be sure to be thorough about it, or the problem may not be solved. Download the latest copy of your printer’s software from the manufacturer and reinstall it. get more information for printer spooler error .Hope this helps you.
