printer not working help. solution for print spooler service not workiing
if your vista print spooler will not start, this may help....

If you are on vista, and your spooler service does not work, you might have
attached a network printer that is shared through a server.

i have a toshiba e-studio65 printer (tcp printer), but also have it shared
off of the server. This caused the print spooler service in vista to lock
up, not to be recovered. I could not even delete the printer anymore.

Next, i un-shared that network printer of the server, because vista could
re-discover the printer, and i'm back to square one.

After restoring Vista to the ORIGINAL install point, i connected that
printer through a local TCP/IP port, and installed the drivers for the
manually (XP drivers by the way, because there were none for Vista).

From what i have read out there, this only happens to some printers. So, if
you have a networked printer (connected directly to a network plug), do not
go through another computer to get to it. Connect as a local port, and you
will be fine. I think this might be a bug in Windows2003 Server printer
sharing or the Vista print sub-system.
