I am trying to figure out why a Lexmark X1185 suddenly stopped working. This printer, at one time, did work just fine but for some reason windows XP no longer sees the drivers. I attempted to re-install them and receive the message that "Spooler Service Stopped". When I attempt to restart service I get the "No Valid Ports for the driver". I have Googled this problem and see that it apparently is common and there are a hundred different solutions and, so far, I have not found one that works for me. I searched this forum for a similar problem but found nothing. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks
One other odd thing. In "Control Panel" there are no printers listed under printers and the printer drivers do not show up in the "Add/Remove" programs list. Yet, the software is on the computer and listed in programs.
I should note, I have tried to restart the spooler service but still no luck and then I get a reference to the RPC.
