    All of a sudden my printer stopped working.
    Start > Settings > Printers - nothing is there except Add Printer. Before my Printer was there - SAMSUNG ML 1210.

    Now If I try adding a Printer it shows a Msg titled "Out Of Resources" - Printer operation cannot continue due to lack of resources. The printer subsystem is unavailable.

    I downloaded the SAMSUNG ML-1210 Printer Driver (Ver. 2.10).exe from SAMSUNG site and gave Repair (there were 2 options - Repair and Remove - Install was not there). Gave Repair - it gave a msg titled : sspnt2kxp - The RPC Server is unavailable

    I ran Dr. Printer (ML-1210 Printer Diagnosis Program) and it showed Failed to check Printer Status.

    I can print the SAMSUNG's test print - but I guess thats in the printer's buffer - so the printer is working - its the driver issue ?

    Thanks

    Every time I've seen this problem, the Windows print spooler has crashed. Have you tried rebooting?

    I had this problem with my printer, I can't remember what I did to fix it, but I think I had ro replace a file.

    As Anti has suggested its the windows print spooler thats causing the problem, try doing a windows repair.

    Thanks. It got alright when Windows restarted. I dont understand how it can be out of resources on Windows 2000 with a 256MB DDR RAM.
