Unhappy Can't install printer

I recently bought a Lexmark Z1300 printer and installed without problems. This week I uninstalled the old printer drivers and files and now the Z1300 doesn't work. I've tried uninstalling/re-installation with no success. The printer isn't even showing up on the control panel. When I try to add a printer I get an error message saying the printer spooler isn't running. I tried starting that under adminstrative tools, but I got an error stating it is disabled or has no devices associated with it. I got an error with printer install referring to RPC, which is started already. I tried to use system restore and it wouldn't restore to any of my points. I see that restore is also dependent on RPC ---- related? Any ideas?
