    Error: 'Print Spooler Service has stopped Working.' on Windows 8.

    I have connected a HP LaserJet 3050 All-in-One Printer to my windows 8 computer, also installed the printer drivers on my system, but am unable to give a print to the printer. When I give any print from system, it returns an error message saying that Error: 'Print Spooler Service has stopped Working.' What does this mean, is this the error in printer or in windows 8? The printer worked fine on windows 7 computer.
