Windows Fax and Scan, available in the Business, Ultimate, and Enterprise editions of Windows Vista, makes it easy to send and receive faxes, scan documents and images, and share those items with others-right from your computer.
If you have Vista Home Basic/Premium and you want to fax from your
computer, you will need a third-party faxing program that is compatible
with Vista.
here is a site with fax software you can buy that will do what you need.

Also there are a few sites that offer fax over the internet:

Please rate if this solves your problem.

My HP J4680 can send faxes but won't receive the faxes?


If I understand correctly you have HP Officejet J4680 All-in-One Printer. You need to check the Version of operating system installed in your computer. In order to check that click on START->right click on COMPUTER->click on PROPERTIES. It will be one of the following :-
1. Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)
2. Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)
3. Microsoft Windows Vista (32-bit)
4. Microsoft Windows Vista (64-bit)
5. Microsoft Windows XP
Then from HP support site install the correct version of driver for that printer.
For further details you can also call HP Phone Support at 1-800-474-6836 if the printer is in warranty.

Do reply with the result....wish you Best Of Luck

How do i scan a document so that i can attach it or save it to a flash drive?


It will depend on if you have the full software installed and want to use that software or another program. Put the document face down on the glass or face up in an Auto-document Feeder.

Launch the HP Solution Center (Start > All Programs > HP > HP Solution Center). Click Scan Picture or Scan Document and adjust the settings if desired and click OK. Set the scan destination and file type. Then press Scan. If you want to use the buttons on the scanner to launch the scan software on the computer, you need to set up the scan to destinations and settings in the Solution Center first.

WinXP, Vista and Win7 can acquire scans with Paint (File > Import from Camera or Scanner), Vista (some versions) and Win7 have Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan) and Photo Gallery (download from Microsoft for Win7).

I hope this helps.

I have windows vista X64 and can't find software for canon mf toolbox


I called Canon support; this is a known issue, and the workaround that worked on Windows 7 x64 was to use Windows Fax

My Dell A810 won't scan. Prints ok, copies ok but won't scan. Have Vista home Premium and a new Dell Inspiron. have uninstalled and reinstalled the printer twice but still won't scan.


Can't remember, but I believe you should have a fault programme which can access to run a self check?

All in one means able to send a "Fax".

If I'm right you have two settings for faxing, either entering doc in to tray or placing on scanner to be copied then faxed.
If so and you are able to fax to anoth er fax number see if you can send fax via your scanner. I'm am trying to find out if your scanner then starts up, strode lights up and copies, least you know important bits are working.

If it does light up, chances are present prog is not vista compat. Go to www.hp.com enter your printer details search it will come up with latest updates and full progs, look for the vista prog. Good Luck.

I can't send a fax from my vista program with out printing out the fax first and sending it the old way, and that waste paper. in the xp or word 2003 I can go to the send in the file and the fax wizzard...


You need to go to printers and choose 'add a printer'. Under add printer, choose the printer called "MS FAX." That will install microsoft fax as a printer. Next, print your document by going to File, Print... (make sure it says "PRINT..." then you should see a selection screen, choose ms fax, and there you go. That should do it.

Drivers for the Sportster Flash x2 (3com) modem


Is the modem recognized by Vista? To check, click on Start, then right-click on computer and select Manage. Click on 'Continue' at the UAC prompt. Select Device Manager from the left-hand pane and scan the right pane to Modems and click on the '+' next to it to open it up. It should list the manufacturer and model number. If it doesn't appear here, we will need to find appropriate drivers for it. You should be able to find them at http://www.usr.com.

If you were able to find the modem in the device list, open Microsoft Fax and Scan, click 'Tools,' then 'Fax Settings..." The 'General' tab should have your fax/modem listed near the top of the property sheet next to 'Device name:.' Just configure the rest of the settings for how you want it to work and you are done.

Can my HP Photosmart C4380 support Microsoft Office Professional 2007 Fax and Scan? Or must the HP fax and scan only be used?


Sorry, Fax and Scan is part of Windows Vista not MS Office. I have been advised by PC World team that this printer (HP Photosmart C4380) does not have the necessary drivers to support Vista Fax and Scan wirelessly and can only operate with the HP Fax and Scan which is very basic and only seems to function via USB cable, not wirelessly. Update drivers may become available.
