A few days ago I installed a new HP DeskJet 1000 printer, installed the s/w on DVD/CD and it worked fine. Printed a few things over the next couple of days, max 10 pages with not much on. Now the printer doesn't work - I mean it does not appear as an installed printer as an option to print to from an application.
. The printer icon is in the Devices & Printers section ( of Windows 7 ) but has a "!"sign. Troubleshooter doesn't work because the printer isn't seen, even tho it is connected and all cable connections are firm.
If I reinstall the s/w CD it asks me if I want to continue even tho the printer is connected.
I've tested the cable ( which is new) with another printer and it worked.
If I try to add the printer with Add Printer I get the msg in the attached file.
Rebooting doesn't help.
How do I ensure the local print spooler starts? hperror.png
