Printer spooler and windows XP

  Truronian 21:29 23 Mar 14

I am running XP on an 8 year old computer. My printer is an HP Deskjet 5150 of similar age. Today i got a message that my printer spooler is not working. What is a printer spooler and how do i solve the problem. I am unable to print at the moment. is this a fault with the printer, or is it a computer system fault. Is it worth a repair cost>

Uninstall and reinstall the printer drivers.

As Fruit Bat /\0/\ above HP never did provide any good printer drivers. you need to remove all the HP printer Software and Driver before reloading it
