Print spooler error "Windows cannot connect to the printer"

I hook up the printer and I let the pc authomatically upload the drivers and the printer's name is recognized and then when I try to print I got this message " Window cannot connect to the printer. The local printer spooler service is not running. Restart the spooler service or restart the machine.
