Print spooler when installing HP OfficeJet 4215 All-In-One

I am attempting to install the printer on my PC with Windows XP. All of the software is installed, but it won't allow me to proceed because it says the print spooler is stopped. How do I fix this? Thanks!

    Thanks for your time. When I do that it says, "Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start." Any advice?

    1. Click Start, and then click Help and Support. 2. Under Pick a Task, click Use Tools to view your computer information and diagnose problems. 3. In the Tools area, click System Configuration Utility. 4. In the right pane, click Open System Configuration Utility. This opens the System Configuration Utility. 5. Click the Services tab. 6. Make sure all the following services are turned on. To turn on a service, click to select the check box.

    � Application Layer Gateway Service
    � Network Connections
    � Network Location Awareness (NLA)
    � Plug and Play
    � Remote Access Auto Connection Manager
    � Remote Access Connection Manager
    � Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
    � Telephony
    � LexBce Server (if you have it)
    7. Click OK, and then click Restart.

    If the above doesn't fix the problem, try the following:

    • Open the Start menu
    • Go to Accessories
    • Right Click on Command Prompt and choose "Run as administrator"
    • After the Command Prompt window opens type the following
    • sfc /scannow
    • This will scan your system files for problems, report on what it finds, and will instruct you to reboot if repairs need to be made

    This solution worked for me when a friend told me that all her network adapters were showing up under Device Manager but not under Network Connections.

My computer keeps showing blue screens, and my software is corrupted. How can I restore my files without the WINDOWS XP CD?

The Windows XP installation CD includes an option to repair an existing Windows XP installation. Using this option allows you to reinstall Windows without losing the files, personal data and programs you already have on the system. To take advantage of it, just place the CD into your CD or DVD drive on your PC and reboot the computer. During the installation you will be prompted if you wish to use the recovery console to repair a Windows installation. The recovery console is rather limited in its use, so just press the Enter key to proceed with the installation as you would normally.

blank.gif Press F8 to continue past the Licensing Agreement.

blank.gif The next screen should display a prompt asking you if you wish to repair an existing installation. Select your Windows installation (most likely it is the only one) and press R.

blank.gif This will begin the repair and reinstallation of Windows. The installation will copy files to the hard drive, reboot the system, and then proceed just like a normal installation. Follow the prompts just as you normally would any normal Windows installation.
When the installation completes, you should still be able to access all of your documents and installed programs.

How do i install hp f428o 0 all in one printer without a disc

You can still download and install the software/driver from here [click here], you'll need to select the operating system, eg. windows xp or windows 7 etc.. Once the page is opened, click the "select..." just below the "Select your operating system, then click 'Next':" and select the operating system, then click "Next" button. All the available softwares/drivers for the selected operating system will be shown on the next page, check the description of the available applications and click the link to download. Follow the onscreen instructions to proceed with the download steps.

If you need further help, let me know with the operating system installed on your computer.

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Can I install windows XP in Acer aspire 5270z to instead vista

Just to make sure I understand the question, you want to install Windows XP on to your computer instead of Windows Vista? Yes you can install windows xp. If your computer came with windows vista you will need to buy windows xp with a COA or Certificate Of Authenticity. This is the code that comes with any Windows software that allows you to prove you have a real copy of windows.

Before connecting the printer to USB port, install software which is came along with the printer. Inbetween it will ask you to connect the printer for detection and install the respective drivers for that printer.
