Print Spooler Service cannot be started


G

Help! I cannot install my Lexmark printer because the
print spooler service will not start. When trying to
install my printer I get a message asking if I want to
have the spooler service started but it cannot be started
automatically which is the default. I went to
the "Services" window and saw that the Print Spooler
service was blank where other services had the
word "started" so I attempted to start the service but I
got an error message 1068 saying that my dependency group
failed. How can I fix this and get my printer working.
I had also got an error message on a previous attempt
that Windows could not locate the "lxamunst.exe" file in
the following path: c:\windows\system32
\spool\drivers\w32x861\3\lxamunst.exe. I've since
located the file and placed it into the path. How could
this have happened?

Try this solution:

Click Start > Run
Type CMD /K SC CONFIG SPOOLER DEPEND= RPCSS
Close the window and restart the computer. That should fix the problem.

Hope this helps! got this from Which computing helpdesk and it worked for me.
