    I recently had cable internet installed on my Dell computer. Before that I had dial up service and everything was o.k Now I have no printer. I tried to install and nothing happened because it came u with an error message that said somthing about the "window spooler" needing to be installed. What can I do

    Hi Ronald, and welcome to the Lounge!

    Try going through this guide for troubleshooting the spooler service. Go to the section "Microsoft's solution from KB article 324757", as well as the rest of the page below it. It may be helpful if the Spooler Service does not reliably start automatically when your computer boots up.

    You can find the Spooler Service in Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services.
