I have a dell A920 that hasn't been able to print for a while because it keeps saying that the printer spoolers are not running. I have checked out the net and check a few things like going to "services" and making sure that the print spoolers are on "automatic" and what not. Then wehn i try to start the print spooler servive i get this message "could not start the print spooler service on local computer. Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start". I have gotten nowhere on the net looking for a solution. Any ideas? The printer will scan but it won't print, i tried reinstalling the drivers, from the printer disk, but nothing is working. thanks

They are very helpful, and answer your question by email within 12 hours (they have always answred mine wihtin an hour).

I had the same problem. The reason the 'print spooler service' will not start or stay started is because your registry is corrupted. Here's the link that fixed it for me:
