Question about HP LaserJet 1022 Printer
My computer closed down and I took it to the computer guys. On getting it back my HP printer would not work I went into my computer and there is no icon for a printer. I cannot add a printer because it says print spooler not working. .I went back to ther "guys" and told them what was going on. they said that it should not have happened and downloaded a thingy that would allow me to use the printer. It downloads but will not work. I have gone into your site and found i can download from HP and have started to do this. I have also recieved an error 1068 while i was looking at ways to correct my computer. Regcure did nothing to help. why does the printer spooler stop working and how can I fix this rotten problem, last exam to do and print out - so frustrating!!! Also computer freezes at times as well.
I have a new HP Printer C4250 & I tried to install & run it on my Sony VAIO GRV 550 Laptop computer running Windows XP. I got the message from the HP Photosmart All-in-one series Printer installer saying the Installation cannot continue - The Spooler Service is stopped and must be running for the installation to continue. Click fix to have the Installer start the service (however that does not work). Then it says Service: Spooler Manufacturer: Microsoft Description: Loads files to memory for later printing Version: 0.0.0.0
Another message says Cannot install this hardware: HPPhotosmart C4200 series An error occurred during the installation of the device The RPC server is unavailable Click Finish to close the Found New Hardware Wizard.
I have no idea what the RPC server is or why the Print Spooler seems to be corrupt. I've been told I need to delete my print spooler and re-install it. Does this sound right? Why are so many people having problems with their print spoolers, even without the dreaded Vista? Was it a virus that made them stop working? You can email me at email@example.com.

I am having the same problems, but with a hp laserjet 1022 printer. The problem started on Friday and kept on saying that the printer spooler is not working. I tried restarting the printer spool and was able to print one document and then the spooler stopped again. Please help.
Unplug HP 1022n printer.
In command line >> net stop "print spooler"
In command line >> net start "print spooler"
(Reason for command line: Service normally times out while stopping in services list)
Open regedit and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER --> Software --> Microsoft --> Windows NT --> CurrentVersion --> PrinterPorts
Deleted HP 1022n printer there
Open regedit and went to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE--> Software --> Microsoft --> Windows NT --> CurrentVersion --> PrinterPorts
Deleted HP 1022n printer there
Went back to Printers and Faxes page. File --> Server Properties --> Drivers tab
Deleted HP 1022n print driver
Go to HP.com and downloaded the driver from website
Plugged printer back into docking station
In Printers and Faxes --> Add Printer --> Local Printer Attached to this computer --> Unchecked Automatically detect and install my Plug and Play printer
Name queue whatever you would like, share printer if you want. Loaded driver that you downloaded from HP. Finish install.

Just go to your Server or Desktop PC and enable the RPC service (Remote Procedure Call)
Right click in "My computer" icon, from the manu select "Manage" then go to "Services and Applications" and expand that, after that select "Services" you will find that services in the right pane, just click in "Start"
I hope this work for you, good luck!!!!

A friend had the same problem printing PDF's. It always seemed to happen when she was trying to print graphics heavy PDF's. Text PDF's and those with simple line drawings would print OK, but those with lots of color pictures embedded would stop the spooler service.
I checked Adobe's Support site and found this:
I guess if you REALLY want to completely solve the problem, then try everything listed. The first thing I tried was to "print as image" and it worked fine. Using that she hasn't had any problems printing PDF's since.
Hope it helps.

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.
