    I deleted my usb print spooler (don't ask) and now I can't reinstall
    my printer. Naturally, I have none of the CD's.

    Any help MOST appreciated!!!

    The wizard says:
    The system is a Dell Dimension E510. And, naturally, having moved
    twice, I have no idea where any of the installation disks are or my
    WinXP CD.

    I went to Intel's site and downloaded a new set of drivers for the 945
    chipset. But this didn't do it, which isn't unexpected, since the
    problem I think was not absence of the drivers but absence of the
    spooler for the USB ports.

    [wizard: the specified port is unknown ]

    Where can I see what port it was trying for.

    Maybe the problem isn't the usb print spooler. Please forgive, but
    here's the content of my spooler log file:

    Thanks. I had already tried this, i.e., new drivers for the HP LJ
    1018, which you correctly identified. Get the same error msg from the
    wizard immediately. In fact, plug-and-play recognizes the device to be
    installed correctly.

    I don't think the problem is not specific to any given printer, but
    rather the "generic" usb spooler was deleted so that ports are not
    seen properly.

    Have you checked (in Services) to see if deleted or disabled?

    There is a "print spooler" service. It has been "Started". It is
    automatically started. I think this is the name of the generic service
    and that it's not the relevant one, Some how the print spooler for the
    usb ports has never made it back after I deleted it. At least, that's
    my hypothesis.

    Try reinstalling your chipset drivers for S&G.

    Try reinstalling your chipset drivers for S&G.

    What is "S&G"?

    I did reinstall, per my first post, all the drivers for the Intel 945
    chipset, the one in my E510. I first downloaded Intel's chipset
    identification utility to determine this. The USB controller (per the
    Device Manager) is the 82801G which is part of the 945 chipset.

    Then I ran the intel's driver install program for the 945 and could
    see it install the drivers.

    However, I don't believe this is a driver problem per se. I think it's
    a problem with the spooler (or the existence of whatever port it
    claims isn't there.

    System Restore had been turned off! (Beats me.) So, obviously I can't
    restore to a previous point, but good idea. I don't have backups.

    The problem started yesterday when every time I tried to print I got a
    "Spooler subsystem app has encountered a problem and needs to close."
    Nothing I did seemed to be able to fix this, so I decided to clean out
    the print spoolers, but I think I should have left the general usb one
    (not the one for specific usb devices like my HP LJ 1018) alone.

    Looking some more on the MS site I see:
    (1) how can I see what the USB port actually is (or if it's there)?
    (Device manager shows a lot of USB stuff.)

    (2) the msg I get when the p&p install wizard sees the HP LJ is: "the
    specified port is unknown".

    Where are these error msgs for the printer install wizard logged???
    Hopefully with more detail.

    (3) Reinstalling the USB print spooler: any idea how this is done?

    Thanks. This certainly hasn't been an easy problem for me.

    Yep, sorry I missed the chipset entry in your first post.


    1) system restore

    2) repair install of XP

    3) complete do-over of XP
