I was having the same problem- dpi didn't have any effect. Changing the SHARPEN to "High" and Descreen worked for me. My research showed the alternative fix was a new scanner, or at the very least a new bulb/power supply (which would probably cost more than a new scanner)
Hi there from Germany - English isn't the best but got the same problem solved so give it a try:
- first connect scanner to computer without having the drivers already installed - next computer claims driver cd put in yours from XP or select downloaded XP-driver - reboot - try if scanner works - sometimes they do already - if not head over to System management or system control what it's called in english - choose add device and choose scanner - now Windows tries to install a xerox-driver - allow this - reboot - and now it should work - if not sue hp! (But buttons for direct printing etc. might not be working anymore - except via the software itself - no more via the buttons
