Click Start-> Run-> type services.msc and press enter -> scroll down to the print spooler service and click Start.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

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 !!

My print spooler is not running


If you are getting a message that your print spooler service is not running, possibly you have the print spooler service turned off.

To start the print spooler service in XP:

Click on Start
Click on Run
Type "services.msc" and hit Enter or press OK
In the services window look for "print spooler service"

Click on the Print spooler and on the top left corner Click on "Start"

Reboot the computer. You should be able to print now.

Please get back for any further assistance.
