Dear Kuester I have been going thru the same thing for months.Neither Dell-MSN nor AOL could help.I spent the night on the PC and I got it.
1press start 2 press run 3 write msconfig and press OK
system configuration will appear.4.Press services 5 SCAN down the list until you see PRINT SPOOLER make sure it is checked and running 6 click enable all click OK YOU GOT IT!! Let me know how it worked out.
I have the same problem as you only I have an inspiron 600m. MY spooler claims to have stopped! Did you ever find a soulution? If you do please let me know!
I followed your directions, and found the spooler, but how to you get the Print spooler running if it says stopped? Need more detail. THank you so much!
I have A940 all in one printer. It is no longer there. I tried to reinstall and it tells me the spool server can not be located and if I want to re-start it. I answer yes and it still does not let me re-install. Please let me know how to reinstall my spool server.
