Windows XP Home Edition. Turned on PC, and now I have these problems. For some strange reason, PC just will no longer acknowledge this printer. Lexmark Z82. I've been using it on this PC for 3 years.

Still got a couple other problems.

1st is the PCI Input Device. In Device Manager, I have a yellow exclamation marker on this device. I have uninstalled, attempted to update drivers etc...still no luck.

2nd,...is the printer. I keep getting this message. "Operation could not be completed. The print spooler service is not running." I have unplugged, tryed to download off the CD that came with printer, tryed to add printer for control panel. I keep getting this same message.

Any Ideas? Thanks

Do you have any idea of what the PCI Input Device is? Have you tried to "Disable" it, and if so, does this let your printer work? Have you tried removing and reinstalling the printer drivers?

Also, please go to Start...Run...and type in "services.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Scroll down the list that appears and look for "Print Spooler"

When you find it, see if it's listed as being "Started" and if it's status is "Automatic". If these settings are displayed, then the Print Spooler is working (and the problem is elsewhere).

If it's not, please right click on Print Spooler and select "Properties". Once in the dialog, under Startup Type - select "Automatic". Then click on the "Start" button. Once that's done, click OK to exit.

See if this enables your printer to function.

I have no idea what the PCI Input Device is. I've neither added or removed anything. I have disabled, un-installed etc.... At start up after I reboot the PC acknowledges that I have new Hardware... (PCI Input Device). I have no idea what it is, nor does it tell me. When I go through Device Mngr. I get no information concerning this PCI Input Device. It just informs me that it's not working properly.

I did what you recommended concerning the printer and those settings were in there. I'm just gonna disconnect the cables and let it sit overnight just to see if it'll pick it up tomorrow when I re-connect everything.

Thanks for your help. I'll try anything else you may suggest. Appreciate!
