I recently bought a new computor with windows 7 platform. Old computor used Windows XP. Could not get printer to work. Took back to where I bought it and they got printer working. Now I cannot get my laptop (windows XP) to be able to print. Whenever I look up the properties, message says print spooler service not running. How can I fix the problem??

This forum is only for Windows Vista problems.
Anyhow, click start > run and type services.msc, then press <Enter>

Scroll down to Print Spooler and double-click on it.

Set startup type to Automatic.

Click it's Start button and wait until the Start button becomes greyed-out.
Clikc the 'OK' button to save the changes.
