Print spooler service not running
by Hollean - 8/8/11 2:44 PM
Can anyone help.
System is a Dell Latitude D630 running windows XP 2002 with SP3.
Printer is a laserjet 3055 printer/scanner connected as network printer on a netgear router.
I tried printing and got an error "Print spooler not running". I can scan from the 3055 without problem.
Looked in printers and faxes and there weren't any installed. Clicked add to reinstall, then got the same error message.
Looked in admin/services and it said print spooler wasn't running. Manually restarted. Still can't add printer.
Tried system restore but it tells me there mave been no changes
looked on the internet and someone had suggested deleting contents of -.my computer - c drive - Windows folder - system32 folder - spool folder - printers folder to remove any corrupt files. Looked there and it was already empty.
Any suggestions of what else I should try ? Thanks in advance.
