Scanning with hp psc 950 on Vista

I just bought a new computer that has Vista and I am unable to scan a document. Is there anything I can download to make it work? I have a new computor with Vista. For about the first two weeks I could print w/ my hp psc 950. Last week I tried to install the software in order to use the scanner. Since that time I can't even print. The software wouldn't install completely. When I try to print I get an error message in the printer window. I have uninstalled the software and the printer several times with the same results. Any suggestions would be apprecdiated. We like this all in one system and it has been problem free for us. We are now facing the purchase of a printer when we know that we have one we like that works! Thanks, K.B.

Seems you have problem in windows registry that's why getting error message again after new attempts.
I would suggest to use ccleaner software to clean windows registry and un-install unnecessary files related to printer software. ccleaner is free utility software and available at http://www.ccleaner.com/
After cleaning, reinstall desired software.
Try this and hope problem will resolve.

Here is what HP has to say
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00808543&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&os=2093&product=60259

It can be a printer in Vista, but the other software that is on that original install disk is not Vista compatable.
They also include a workaround for the scanning.

    I went diffing a little deeper in the HP product line.

    The all in one you have is considered a discontinued product by HP.

    One thing you might want to try (and you can do this with the 30 day trial period on some of these products) is to use a scanner software Like PagePro, or OmniPage, and any one of a number of products like that.

    Install the trial software, and install the all in one as just a scanner (tell it to find new hardware, and let it install basic TWAIN driver). If it works, great. If it doesn't, then your options are to get a new all in one, or Attach that all in one to an XP machine, or reload your new computer with a downgrade to XP.



    They are not great options, but it would bring back the functionality of the printer.

    There are many products out that are not Vista compatible. This just happens to be one of them.

If you are using a Win Xp computer than try to scan using scanners and cameras utility under control panel. Else you can download HP scan drivers and perform scanning. Also 3rd party scan softwares such as photo shop will allow you to  scan.

Scanning


You need to download a scanner driver compatible with your psc 2410. The only driver for your psc available on a Vista is the printer driver.

HP PSC 950 and Vista


Unfortunately, no. The whole Vista migration issue is a raging debate. The only work around that might work, is to set up something like an E Fax account, and send it to yourself, and then print it from the web interface. Ugly, but might be the only way now. Got Backup?
