Printer stop printing


It could be the Print Spooler service on your computer that's not properly working. Try these steps to fix the problem:
  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)

Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Printer Spooler service!


Click on "Start, Run", type "services.msc"

On the right side of the services window, scroll down to "Print Spooler". Double-click it.

If startup type is "disabled", click the drop-down and set to "Automatic" and then click "Start". If already on automatic, click "Stop" to stop the service. Once stopped, click "Start" to restart the service.

Reboot and try again :)

Hope this helps - remember to rate!
