Error 1068 on vista print spooler stopped

While trying to install a windows xp version of a lexmark x4270 on to a vista and download the drivers for vista my printer spooler stopped and will not restart. I've done a reboot, deleted printer drivers and reinstalled them. Went to services and pressed start spooler, nothing. Help!

    I have a X2250 Lexmark, also when trying to install it stops saying the spooler service has stopped and everything goes bad from there. It is Vista 32 with latest updates. Tried the whole clean drivers and registry things from all the other forums, but still can't print to the printer.

    I have same problem as Warren124. I think it is safe to say that the printer WAS NOT compatible for me in this instance. I have downloaded regfix and this has not helped. I cannot start the spooler and get a 1068 error when I do. I am running vista. Any guidance would be great as I am totally stuck to do my homebased work. Cheers

Please follow the below given steps to remove the dependencies.

To remove this dependency all you have to do is open the command prompt and type in the following command:

Please type Sc*config*spooler*depend=*rpcss (put spaces where the (*)’s are.

When you hit enter you will get this message:

Well..for beginners, did you check for the Vista compatibility with this printer? Also, you MAY need SP1 for Vista, which had a ton of driver updates.

Printer Spooler error 1068


Hi jbaratta,

This sounds like a software problem (in other words, your printer is not the issue). Here's what I suggest:

1) Save whatever you were attempting to print, and restart the computer. Try printing it again.
2) If it doesn't work, try uninstalling the software for your printer, and then re-install it. In the event you don't have the software handy, you can download the driver from this website:

http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi

If it still doesn't work, please let me know, and I'll be happy to offer some more ideas. Hope this helps!

Kind regards,

Spooler not running after Lexmark x83 installation on windows XP laptop


From what you're saying the windows print spooler service is not starting following the installation of your printer (and thereby you cannot print i'm assuming)

try the following to start the print spooler service if it is not already running.
Click Start
Right Click My Computer
Click Manage
Click "Services and Applications"
Click Services
Scroll down to "Print Spooler" and double click on it to open up the properties page
where it says "startup type" select automatic from the combo box list
Apply
If the service is NOT running, start it by clicking "start"
click OK

The print spooler service is started now, and **should** work properly. If the spooler is still not starting properly, then you may have a driver issue and i reccommend uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers for your printer.

HP print spooler problem and error 1068. Want my printer back!!!


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.
