Printer Spooler Was Not Started


I recently installed windows 7 ultimate as an upgrade to vista ultimate. After following instructions everything looked fine. However, when i tried to install an hp printer message came that print spooler was not started . Well, i started it but it keeps falling out of start mode. I'm listed as administrator. I have a dell studio xps computer and am running 64 bit. I've about exhausted self help info. Can someone assist since this is getting very frustrating.

Printer Spooler

I have a lexmark all in one printer/fax, scanner that did work well with xp. I now have windows 7. The all in one is installed by disk but when i try to print the computer tells me i need to install a printer. I have contacted lexmark, a driver was installed. I still get the error. Lexmark tells me i need to contact microsoft to fix the print spooler. There are no error codes. What is this? Is it legitimate or am i getting a run around from lexmark? Why did my all in one work with xp and not win 7?

Printer Spooler Error

I have installed windows 7 rc, and while i have had no problems with anything, the printer spooler service does not seem to work. I have gone into the services menu and i started the print spooler application, but it seem to go back to stop after a restart or shut down. Even when the print spooler is on and i try to print something, the system just says that the printer is offline.

Hp Printer Spooler Dependency Error

I've just installed an hp officejet 8500 on my home network. I run windows 7 32 bit, and have downloaded the latest drivers.

When i try to print from an application like word 2007, i get "windows could not start the print spooler on local computer. Error 1068: the dependency service or group failed to start. "  Going to services and setting both the print spooler and lex bce to automatic has not effect.

For what it's worth, i previously had lexmark software installed on the computer.

Printer Problem - Print Spooler Is Not Running

Every time i go and print something in windows 7, it doesn't print and then when i try to open the printer it says "print spooler is not running". So pretty much cant print at all. However i can print in windows xp vitural mod. I've tried restarting the print spooler but everytime i go and print it shuts the print spooler down and then the print spooler restarts.

I was trying to us the microsoft fix it for the print spooler but unfortunately its only for vista and xp. Need help because i don't feel like going in windows xp mode all the time to print.

Printer Spooler Is Stopped And Cannot Install Drivers

All printers are gone, when i try to install the drivers for local or network printers it says the printer spooler is stopped and cannot install drivers. I went to the services page and started the printer spool and rebooted (tried several times) and it still has the same error.

Every few times i reboot all of the printers (local and network) will be shown in the devices and printers area but it will not permit any printing. When i reboot all of the printers will be gone again except the two local usb printers (all are vista compatible) and i am still unable to print no matter what printer or solution i have tried.

Not able to print
Printer spool not working (started but windows 7 thinks it is stopped)
Hp laserjet 3300 printer not recognized
I have rebooted several times with no lick

Printers are gone every few times computer starts then appear again but do not work either way
Downloaded all of the latest drivers and tried to install but windows 7 printer spool is not working
Called windows 7 support and was told i had to pay $299 to speak with anyone. I went out tonight and bought a $2900 macbook pro and plan on buying mac's for the entire company after another failure by microsoft.

Error - Local Printer Spooler Service Is Not Running

"local printer spooler service is not running" error; any attempt to add a local printer (usb or bluetooth) fails. I cannot add a printer (usb or bluetooth), as it always returns a printer spooler error. I've tried restarting the print spooler, and making sure that "local system account" and "allow service to interact with desktop" is selected. I've also removed all old printer drivers, restarted, checked the rpc locater is active, and tried everything else i can think of.

This worked fine in vista x64 on the same machine just yesterday, but the upgrade to windows 7 x64 seems to have broken something. The printer, an hp c5500 series, works fine on a virtual machine running the same os. (I'd rather not have to run a vm just to print, of course. ) Running rtm x64 on a dell xps m1530 that printed fine from vista just before the upgrade to win7. Suggestions?

Error Code - 1813 - Printer Spooler Problems

I have a new dell laptop and have upgraded from win 7 home prem to win 7 professional.networked (not homegroup) (wireless) successfully with my old desktop running xp and i am now trying to add the hp printer attached to the desktop to network too.

I can "see" the printer on the network map but when i double click to add get the error code 1813 message and then 1053. I've been into services. Msc and the start up is set at automatic. In the field description is "failed to read description error code 1813. Status field is "stopped" when you try to start it you get "windows could not start this service on local computer. Error code 1053 - service did not respond to start in controlled or timely manner.

In all the forum etc i've been reading the only person who seems to have fixed this reinstalled the printer spooler thingy?. He recons it was corrupted in his upgrade from vista to win 7. I have no idea how to do this.

Print Spooler Service / Unable To Add Printer

Installed clean version of windows 7 professional last night (new disk, did not upgrade from previous version) along with some application programs (outlook 2007, etc. ). Was able to print, etc. This morning, however, i have not printers installed. When i try to reinstall i keep getting the following:

"Windows can't open add printer. The local print spooler service is not running. Please restart the spooler or restart the machine. " I've restarted the system (several times). I've gone into services and restarted the spooler (several times). I gone into the "troubleshoot common problems" application several times. I continue to get the message regardless of what i do. What do i try next?

Printer Doesn't Print, But Job Shows Up In Spooler

The printer doesn't print, but job shows up in spooler when printing by network (lpr) - unless i restart the spooler! Same problem here. My epson d120 does have a compatible win7 driver and prints nicely via the same router configured in winxp (or 7, resp. ) Identically. In win7, no go. That is, unless i restart the spooler service/daemon under computer-manage-services manually. But not every time. When it restarts & will print correctly, epson's status window will pop up und inform about the progress.

I'm getting tired of the spooler restarting - please fix this (it works in xp)!?

Further details: win 7 rc (build 7100), updated printer drivers by clicking windows update button (added loads more, took ages). This btw also added another option under printer ports : customized/user defined (i'm using the german version, don't know the equivalent name in english). This wasn't present before the windows update procedure. It also exists in xp, though. Finding the printer via discovery of the port doesn't work - probably a upnp issue.

Will definitely not buy (though i think it's a great system/os) until this is fixed for good. Or is it, that your company doesn't like fully functional rc versions out there that users will eventually hack to get a freeby?

Don't get upset about the latter suggestion - it was just inspired by what other software vendors have been doing in the past. Not a good sort of behavior, if it ever leaks to the media/community.

Can't Open Add Printer - The Local Print Spooler Service Is Not Running

"windows can't open add printer. The local print spooler service is not running. Please restart the spooler or restart the machine". I am running into the same problem on an emachines et1331g.initially, i wanted to print to an older dell - found the driver was not windows 7 compatible so installed my canon px100 successfully and used it for over a month with no problems.

Then i needed to move the computer to a different desk and install a driver for an epson nx415. Using "add printer", the message says "windows can't open add printer. The local print spooler service is not running. Please restart the spooler or restart the machine". Restarting the machine does not resolve the problem. In control panel/admin tools/services/print spooler, the spooler is set to start automatically and will sometimes show started, sometimes not.

If i start it and then go back to devices and printers, the epson will show that it is installed and ready. But if i then try to print something, it says "before you can perform printer, you must first install a printer". If i logout and return later, i will find the spooler no longer running.
I have tried the latest 64 bit drivers from epson with no success. I am running windows 7 home premium 64 bit. Any ideas?

Print Spooler Issue

Another print spooler issue.
Dell xps with win 7 free upgrade from vista
Hp laserjet 1018 and injet 920c

Everything worked fine since october purchase and november upgrade to win 7. Six days ago the print spooler would not stay started. Have checked print spooler and service is at automatic with retry at 0 seconds. Restart and restore did not solve. Uninstalling of printer drivers was not successful. Printer icons present on control panel with limited function. Not able to clear print que by double clicking on printer icons. Dependencies as specified in other posts.

Buw enumerator ? Both present in device manager.system file checker did not return problems. Searched and did not find tpvmmon.dll. Kb314876 not allowed because wrong operating system.microsoft support would not accept question and sent me to dell support.could not navigate that system. Nothing of help on dell or hp sites-just more of the same.

Print Spooler Hangs

I have 2 laptops, upgraded old one to win 7, new one came with it installed. Using several different printers, from time to time the spooler will freeze up. My only solution so far has been to open services, and stop the spooler, i then have to reboot to clear the problem. Then things work fine for a while then it hangs up again. Either laptop, any printer, direct or networked. Doesn't matter which combo i use so i can only conclude the problem lies with win 7.

Print Spooler Error

I recently upgraded from vista 64 bit to windows 7 home premium 64 bit. I am on a dell studio laptop and i have a dell 1235 network printer which is on my home network. My printer was previously installed and worked fine when i was using vista but the first time i tried to print in win 7 i got a message that no printer was installed. When i tried to add the printer i got a message that "windows can's add a printer.

The local spool service is not working. " I went to services and started the spool service but everytime i start the spool service i get continuous  interactive service detection messages with the title microsoft visual c+ runtime library at the location windowssystem32spoolsv.exe. This also freezes everything else from starting on my computer and when i go to add printer with the spool started i get the message: windows can't open add printer operation could not be completed error message 0x000006be.

I have been combing these forums for days and have tried the microsoft fix it. It does not resolved the problem. I have tried cleaning the print drivers and many other things. Nothing has worked. I have to keep the spooler disabled in order to run any of my programs.

Print Spooler Wont Start

When i try to connect a printer to my new laptop with windows 7, it wont install the driver. I've tried with several different printers in different usb-ports. I got two printers with scanners. The system allows me to install and use the scanners , but not the printers.

If i try to add a new printer a message tells me the print-spooler is not running and i need to restart the computer or the printspooler. (I use the danish version and don't know the exact message in english. ) A restart of the computer makes no difference and it is not possible to start the spooler (error 1053), no matter what way i try to do so.

Remote procedure call (rpc) is running without problems. My laptop is new and i've never had a printer connected to it. The shop where i bought the computer and windows 7 won't help me, since it is a software-problem they say. I hope someone here will!

Spooler Service Crashes Repeatedly

Just installed windows live essentials beta and now i cannot print anything. Part of the package was live messenger, photo gallery, movie maker, and sync. There was also a connector for ms outlook 2007 that connects to e.g. Linkedin.

I also installed an update for security essentials (kb2254596) as well as a hotfix for windows (kb981621) this morning. I do not know what may have caused this problem - i could print yesterday - but it should be one of the above.

What happens is this: the printer spooler service is started automatically upon starting windows but almost immediately crashes. I can go to printers under control panel and see the printers installed but unless i'm quick they have all disappeared when i open the window - since the spooler service crashes. I've tried restarting the service, but it just crashes again within a few seconds.

I've also tried repairing live essentials beta as well as restarting my computer (several times), but neither seems to make a difference. The event viewer's system log states only that "the print spooler service terminated unexpectedly" along with the number of times it has crashed. There is no error code.

The application log says:

"Faulting application name: spoolsv.exe, version: 6. 1. 7600. 16385, time stamp: 0x4a5bced7

Faulting module name: unknown, version: 0. 0. 0. 0, time stamp: 0x00000000

Exception code: 0xc0000005

Faulting process id: 0x1460

Faulting application start time: 0x01cb17a9e389d336

Faulting application path: c:windowssystem32spoolsv.exe

Faulting module path: unknown

Report id:25eed760-839d-11df-8b1a-f51b53ee2f4b"

I have run the microsoft automated troubleshooting service (http://support.microsoft.com/gp/printing_problems), but it finds no errors except that the spooler service is not running. So it suggests to restart it, but upon restart it just crashes again. Obviously, this is no solution.

I have also run the system file checker (sfc) tool, but it finds no problems (no "integrity violations, " as it puts it).

Furthermore, i've run ccleaner to check if there are any errors in the registry, but there is nothing.

I have two "out of the ordinary" printers installed: adobe acrobat 8. 0, i.e. The pdf converter, and printanywhere for printing from my laptop on university printers.

I run windows 7 pro (upgraded from vista business) 32-bit on a thinkpad machine. Please help - i've run out of ideas.

I ran sfc /scannow and the results were "windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations. "I cannot uninstall the print driver software because it tells me the rpc server is not available. When i go into services it shows as being automatic and currently started.

Upgrade Causes Print Spooler Stop

I recently updated my lenovo thinkpad t61 from windows vista to windows 7 ultimate. This upgrade caused my computer to stop being able to print. Previously, i was using an hp deskjet 5650 to print from my computer. Now, i can't even get a the print dialogue box to come up in word when i press ctl p. When i try to add a printer in the printers window, i get the error message "windows can't open add printer. The local print spooler service is not running.

Please restart the spooler or restart the machine. " My printer is supposed to be compatible with windows 7. I have tried downloading new drivers, i have started and restarted the print spooler many times (it always crashes the first time i try to print something, ) and i have gone through hp customer support. Hp told me that the problem was with the operating system, not the printer and that i should contact microsoft for support. What should i do?
