So i did the usual check all the chords were in and reset all the systems and when i went to try and print it still wouldnt. I went into printers and saw that my printer was not there anymore so i went add printers. It then came up with a message about the printer spooler. So i went to the help centre and i couldnt find anything on it.

For some now when i go to print it comes up with "print spooler subsystem app has stopped working and has to close".

I went and searched all of these forums on the internet and tried all of their different options like going and restarting the print spooler which i did and turn it on but then as soon as i wanted to print it stopped working again.

I then found another place that said;
1. Go to Programs and Features in Control panel > click Turn Windows features on or off

2. click + sign of Print services

3. Select LPD and LPR.


I did that and the same error still appears....

i really need my printer working so any suggestions would be great!

And my printer is called HP Officejet Pro L7580 if that makes a difference... And i have Windows vista
