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.

Printer spooler services not started when i connect to network printer cannon lbp 2900


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.

2. Spooler service was stop by accident or turn off to manual/disable mode.

3.Faulty installed printer driver that contains error or incompatible with previous printer drivers installed in your computer or system.

4. Print jobs and drawing jobs were corrupted by accident which caused print que lock and resulting print spooler service to crash.

5. Your printer had printing problem issue with pdf files.

Hi...i have a Brother MFC290-c all in one setup. My printer was working fine and then one day it stopped. I have tried to reinstall but says Printer spooler failure whatever that means. I went to look at...


Hi. Printer spooler is not running on your computer or there's a need to erstart the printer spooler services. Please refer to steps below.

1. Press Window key + R to open the Run dialog Start and type services.msc and click OK.

2. Double-click the Printer Spooler service, and then change the startup type to Automatic. This sets the Spooler service to start automatically when you restart the computer. Click OK.

3. Restart the computer and try to install the printer again.

If that doesn’t work, the problem could be related to corrupted printer drivers that are installed on the computer. Try uninstalling all printer software from the computer and start from scratch. This may include PDF writer or faxing software as well. Anything listed in the Control Panel under Printers & Faxes I would do away with. If there is any software installed for other printers in Add/Remove Programs I would uninstall it all. Clean out everything possible that might be hanging the Printer Spooler service. Obtain updated software from your printer manufacturers and reinstall only the items you need.

Have a good one!

Printers vanished and can't add printer


Your shell extensions have a software conflict. The offending piece of software will have to be determined and removed, or at least stopped, before re-booting the computer. You may be able to repair the problem using the System Restore option.
