Print Spooler Problems
The print spooler is a software program that is responsible for managing all printing jobs. The print spooler sends the printing request to be sent to the computer printer or print server. The print spooler program allows deleting the print job being processed. Otherwise it manages the print jobs currently waiting to be printed in the printer. The print spooler is the scheduler for a printing job to be carried out in the system. The print spooler transfers messages from the system to the printer in order to take the print outs. There are chances in which the print spooler faces certain problems which results in the entire failure of the printing process. The main errors caused in the print spooler software program are: incompatibility of the operating system, printer is not added to the system, errors in the print spooler etc.
- Incompatibility with the Operating System
- Printer could not be added to the system
- Print spooler errors
Incompatibility with the Operating System
The print spooler problems arise when the printer is not compatible with the Operating System. It would result in the failure of the printing process in the system. You could fix the issue by checking whether the printer is supporting the Operating System. If so you need to install the correct printer driver CD in the system for resolving the issue.
Printer could not be added to the system
A very irritating problem is the printer could not be added to the system for which the print spooler cannot recognize the printer for carrying out the printing tasks. This is caused due to some printers being installed before the current printer installed in the system. You could fix the issue by starting the computer in the 'Safe' mode. You need to move to the 'Windows Advanced Option' by pressing the 'F8' key while the computer starts and then selecting the 'Safe' mode option from there. By doing this you could delete the pre installed printer files and thus fix the issue.
There are chances in which the print spooler in the system shows errors due to the high CPU use, documents in the queue which do not print or delete, lock ups, slow system performance, disk space errors etc. This causes the printing process to be failed.
