Print spooler stopped. Tried to correct it by going to Start>Run>services.msc>Print Spooler.. startup type set to Automatic>Service Status set to Stopped>pressed START and got error message as follows, Error 1068 The dependancy service or group failed to start.
Windows XP sp2, 512 ram. Trying to install Lexmark x3450 printer but can not change setting on print spooler to start. Any suggestions would be helpful, thank you.

Go into services and look for LexBce Server Service, set that to automatic, start it and then start print spooler.

Welcome to TSG....

I would try going to the Lexmark site and see if there are any newer drivers for this printer and then get the driver downloaded and installed. Also if this is a USB printer I would delete the current driver and disconnect the USB cable from the computer and then install the USB driver first then either when asked to or during reboot plug the USB cable back in.

The only dependencies for the Print Spooler as far as services goes is Remote Procedure Call (RPC). However, looking at that, if the RPC wasn't started, you pretty much wouldn't have a working computer.

Unless you have a Lexmark printer, then Print Spooler is also dependent on LexBce Server.
