Windows® 7 Printer Spooler Problems
Printer spooler is one of the software programs, which is responsible for managing all printing jobs in your system and taking print outs in an efficient way. Printer spooler sends the printing request to the computer printer or to the print server. The printer spooler program also helps in deleting the print jobs being processed besides also managing print jobs currently waiting to be printed in the printer. In addition, the printer spooler also allows user to schedule a printing job to be carried out in the system. It then transfers messages from the system to the printer for taking the print outs. Several times, the printer spooler may face certain problems and result in the complete failure of the printing process. One of the main issues caused in the Windows 7 spooler software program is due to incompatibility of the Operating System.

- Printer could not be added to the system
- Printer spooler errors
Incompatibility with the Operating System
Printer spooler issues arise when the printer is not compatible with the Operating System. It would then 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 or not. If it is not supporting then you have to install the correct printer drivers from website. This would resolve all compatibility issues.
Printer could not be added to the system
Unless a printer is added to a system and the printer spooler correctly recognizes the printer, it will not be able to carry out the printing jobs. This happens when other printers, before the actual printer, is installed in the system. You could fix the issue by starting the computer in the safe mode. When you power on the system, you need to move to the ‘Windows advanced option’ by pressing the ‘F8’ key and then selecting the safe mode option from there. By doing that you would be able to delete previously installed printer files.
Printer spooler errors
There are chances that printer spooler in the system would show errors. This is due to very high CPU use. The documents in the queue would not print or delete.
