I always seem to just come to you with problems, sorry about that. My Dell A920 All-in-one printer was working like a charm until about 2 weeks ago. My printer was in storage over the summer while I was working to have money for college, and when I unpacked it and set everything back up back at the beginning of September there was no problems with it.
About two weeks ago, as stated above, whenever I wanted to print off a document the computer tells me it either can't find a printer, the spooler service isn't running, or I need to reinstall the drivers. I did a lot of research to try and alleviate this dillema (I'm a student and need the printer for homework and project purposes), everything from going into services.msc and making sure the RPC server is running (when I reinstalled the drivers and completely uninstalled and reinstalled the printer itself, everything went fine installing, there appeared to be no problem until 99% when it told me the RPC server is unavailabe), when I tried to get the spooler service to run, it gave me the error - Error 1068; the dependency service or group failed to start, totally uninstalled my printer, turned off the computer, disconnected it, rebooted, eliminated all traces of printer software, rebooted again, turned off computer, reconnected printer, rebooted, reinstalled software, still can't print.
I've exhausted all my thought processes and options that I could possibly think of to try and fix this problem on my own, now I'm turning to anybody out there that can help me. I thank you in advance for any help anyone can offer.
