Download the HP Print Diagnostic tool HPPDU.exe

http://download.cnet.com/HP-Print-Installation-Diagnostic-Utility/3000-2086_4-75567361.html


Run this tool, it will start the print spooler, and worked through whatever problems kept making it crash.

1. Open   printmangement.msc
2. In the printmanagement.ms --  Remove all printer drivers
3 Start installing them again ( the newest working drivers)
