Question about HP Office Equipment & Supplies

4 Answers

I purchased a 5590 digital scanner a few months ago. I haven't experienced the expected usage, but have now had occasion to need to scan double-sided , letter-size documents. This occasioned the need to adjust the scanner settings and I have discovered I do not appear to have the HP Director software loaded. Either it didn't load off the disk , or I have accidentally deleted it. Can I simply reload the software over what I already have (everthing else seems to work fine!)or should I forst remove all of the existing scanner software?

    You really haven't answered my question yet. I have the software disk that came with the scanner when I purchased it. All of its content was loaded (I thought), but the HP Director referred to in the User Guide does not appear to be on my computer now. To get the HP Director onto my computer , should I simply reload the entire disk, or should I first try to remove the existing software?

    Yes, I think you have instructed me how to respond when I get messages from attempting to reload the software.

If it is a "flatbed" digital scanner here are 2 sites for you to download the software and drivers, remove the existing software first:

When you will directly load the drivers it will pop up on the screen that do you want to keep the existing drivers or load the drivers again.u have to select the ---drivers again option---
if you will select the ----existing driver option---nothing will be changed and it will work as how it is working now.your scanner drivers will not be loaded.

U have to remove the existing drivers first to load the new drivers then only it will work with the new drivers loaded.

  • smarttech Nov 19, 2008

    when you will load the printer  driver again after deleting the old existing driver. there will be a option comming up in between that ---do you want to load the full version or just the short cut version of the driver---and at that time u have to select the full version of the software in that only u will get all the functions of the printer work properly.
    if u select the short cut version it will only load the printer options and nothing will be loaded.

You don't necessarily need the Installation Disk because you can download all the drivers and software/utlities from HP Official support for Free. (and make a CD if you wish)
Click here and select Operating System and download the drivers and scan software.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Good Luck!
Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!

Document Retrieval


look in the manager program of the scanner..if no one deleted the stuff from the memory it may be there after all..or if the scanner has internal memory it might be there ..if not than it is gone for good..But most printers when you make a scan you can edit it and see it in the scanner's manager library ..an it may be there ..

HP Solution Center does not recognize the scanner anymore... We are operating on a Windows 7 system... the drivers had to be downloaded from the internet because the cd that came with the printer was for...


I had the same problem and solved it. I was using HP Solution Centre to run my HP Scanjet 5590 on Windows 7 Pro 64 bit without problems. Then I ran the scanner using Windows Fax and Scan, but didn't like it, so went back to HP Solution Centre - whereupon the scanner was not recognised.
After hours of reinstalling software etc etc, without success, I suddenly noticed four device icons on the left hand side of HP Solution Centre. These were labelled (when hovered over with the mouse) hp scanjet 5590, hp scanjet 5590 #2, hp scanjet 5590 #3, hp scanjet 5590 #4. Only the top icon was active, but when I clicked on any of the four it moved to the top.
Clicking on hp scanjet 5590 #2 gave me a working installation once more - problem solved. No doubt the multiple icons arose from my desperate attempts to try different USB ports.

Hi,

Unfortunately HP has not issued a separate Vista driver for your printer. They do, however, give some pointers for setting up and using your printer for printing and scanning.

Thanks fro using Fixya, just the same.

Lexmark, scanner asks for pin code and won't scan without it.


This drove me mad for about 2 hours (I've just experienced the same problem), but have finally found the solution!

Firstly, it depends on what Lexmark you have (as different printers use different software)...

For my Lexmark which is an S600, I went into the program 'Lexmark home' which was in the lexmark folder on the start menu and in my lexmark software folder, went to 'settings' and then 'Network computer name'. From here you can set the pin.

According to people experiencing this problem with other Lexmarks, you can do this via the equivalent 'productivity suite' program through 'network settings'.

Hope this helps.

Hello, I have an HP OfficeJet 7310 all-in-one print/scanner/fax etc. I purchased about two years ago but don't use very often. Yesterday while I was trying to send a fax I received a loud winding-up...


I have same problem! The copy/scan function would feed the orginal from the ADF halfway and instead of making a normal loud feeding noise it made a horriable alarming sound and displayed an error message. To fix it: I waited a day or two and bang the top of the feeder cover with normal force while the original is feeding. It appeared the problem is resolved. I have no idea what the problem is, however I think if this work for few months at a time is fine by me.
