Operation could not br completed. The print spooler service is not running


Hi There,

If your print spooler service is not running, then follow the below steps to get it working :

Step 1 :
* Start > run > services.msc > ok
* Select the service name called print spooler from the list.
* Check the status on the print spooler service, if it is stopped, then right click and select start or restart.
* Then the spooler service will start working....

Step 2 : ( NOTE :USE THIS STEP ONLY WHEN YOUR STEP 1 DOESN'T WORK )
In this case, we assume that the print spooler service is gone bad and we would have to recreate the spooler service.

* Start > run > cmd > ok
* Type: sc delete spoolsv (this will delete the corrupted spooler for us to create a new print spooler)
* Reboot the system and after rebooting the computer back.

* Start > run > cmd > ok
* Type: sc create spoolsv (this will create a new print spooler service)
* Reboot the system and this time the print spooler service is a new and fresh spooler and it should work normal and perfectly.

Enjoy printing !!

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!

Microsoft said spooler subsystem app not working


1) Click the Star>Run, type in "Services.msc" in the Run dialog box.
2) A services window popup, find the service name "Print Spooler", double it and change the Service Status to "Start".

Now u can use your printer with your spooler services enable now.

Cannot get the printer install it saying the printer spooler is not woking have two more printer said something so brought aother printer i only use one


The spooler is a service running that handles all the printing.
Can you list the exact spooler error?

This page from Microsoft has helped me numerous time with spooler errors, but be sure about the problem as it references editing the registry and this should only be done if necessary

Stooler problem


I believe (and hope!) you're referring to a "spooler" error.

Here's what you need to do:
- click on "Start, Run"
- type "services.msc"
- when the services window pops up, on the right side, scroll down until you see "Print Spooler" then double-click on it
- if the service is not set to "automatic" via the drop-down menu, select that option
- if the services is not started, click "start". If the service has started, click "Stop", wait for a few seconds and then click "Start" to restart the print spooler service.

You might have to reboot after this (a good idea anyway) and you should have no more problems. If you run into continued print spooler problems, you either have spyware/virus damage, or corrupted Windows files (the latter requiring a Windows repair or reinstall)

Hope this helps - remember to rate :)

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 :)
