I have a problem with my scanner. I don’t know if it is a hardware or software problem.
A little while ago I replaced my MB with a Soyo SY-K7VM333 and all went well, or so I thought.
I use my scanner, among other things, to make copies of documents.
I have a program called photocopier and it worked well in the past.
Now I get an error:
No TWAIN supported scanner found.
So I uninstalled the scanner and rebooted ( Twice ) and it still gives me the same error.
So I tried to use CompUPic, but get the error:
Unable to open default Data source
Source Manager Operation failed
On the scanner is a scan button and when I press it, it opens MS
Office Document Imaging and I can scan,
but it informs me that it can only scan it in Black & White, no color and it will only scan it as a .TIF file.
My Computer is an Emachines with 1 gig ram
and an AMD
2000+. The scanner is a HP scan jet 5p. Running XP Home
-SCSI adaptor is a Adaptec AHA-2940/2940W
Any help will be appreciated.
I downloaded a driver for my scanner from HP and installed it.
It also comes with a test program and the test failed. It tells me
The communication with the scanner failed.
Could it be the PCI
-SCSI card is bad?
I will try to re seat it later. Hopefully that will help.
