No data sending to printer

By mckay_w ·
Running Win95, lately when trying to print a document a message appears saying "Attempting to send data to the printer and the printer is not responding".
The printer is plugged in, turned on and connected to computer, and nothing has been altered since it had been working.
After a bit of trouble shooting, another message appeared mentioning Spool 32.
Does this have anything to do with the problem of not printing.

It seems like your data isn't spooling properly.
try uninstalling your printer driver, then re-installing it. Then unplug your printer and plug it back in. Make sure your printer is checked as the default printer.
Good Luck!

I had the same problem once with my computer. I unplugged the printer, uninstall the drivers, clean the computer with norton cleansweep, did a Norton Windoctor check, rebooted, connected up the printer again, and reinstalled the drivers.
The printer worked fine after that.

Also try to check the printer cable. Borrow one you know is good from a friend. Long shot, but worth trying.

Good Luck.

Try removing all the printer drivers that are currently installed. Reinstall Windows by running the setup file while Windows is running or while in DOS mode. This will replace all the corrupted files of Windows including the Spool32.* files. You need not Thereafter, install the driver of your printer and send some test pages on it.
