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

PS it makes it worse if you are using MS Word
