RPC Server // Print Spooler

Hi,
I recently bought a new HP PSC 1300 ALL-IN-ONE, and it worked great for the first few months.. But now i get an error, The hardware is now re detected, and after installing, It says Rpc Server Unavaible. I have located the problem of this being the Print Spooler.. It is set on automatic on the Services.msc, yet it is not started.. So i click start this service, and i get the following error :

Could Not start the Print Spooler service on local computer.
Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start.

So thats why im getting the error with my printer, The spooler wont start. Have you got any ideas how i can fix this? I have tryed Reinstalling the all-in-one but once again it just says Rpc Server is unavaliable... I have also checked drivers ect.. Please any help?

~ Thanks

What is your OS? Reinstall your current service pack. It should replace the corrupted spooler.
