Have two Epson ink jets and were working fine until yesterday.

When I tried to print today this came up, "Printer spooler not running", what does it mean?

Printers and faxes in control panel is empty, so no printing possible.

Can't find the installation discs, so how do I get it back?

Please help..Ron..

Sounds like the printer spooler service is playing up or it has stopped. Go to run type services.msc. Dbl click on printer spooler. Whats it on?? What version of windows is it?

It was on manual, so I changed it to automatic. Am using Firefox7.01 and windows 6. Is that right?

Might be vista. So does it work now?? You may have to reinstall the printer drivers. Install the drivers before plugging the printer/s in
