Have HP scanjet loaded software and driver but it just does not work checked electrical connection and usb ok thought it had gone wrong so bought new HP g2410 still cannot load checked hardware manager...

Having re-read your post it seems you have a visioneer scanner and installed HP scanjet drivers so this would definitely be an issue.

Ok, unplug usb lead between scanner and pc.
go into add/remove programs and remove any scanner software that may be showing.
load correct scanner driver (preferably the latest version from the manufacturers website).
plug in scanner usb lead when prompted and turn scanner power on.
It should then install correctly.

If usb stuff starts playing up it's usually easier to unplug it, uninstall it then re-install it using the latest drivers from the manufacturers' website. Don't just stick the disc in and re-install. Can save hours of messing about.

Installed on XP, ran once or twice but scanner lamp did not light up. Now it won't even load when you double click and I keep getting "scanner not ready" errors. 2 problems. Installed software will not...

You might have to uninstall it along with the software from the control panel, the software from programs area, restart computer and then install it over. Also check the company website for any other downloads from the support area.
Just an idea.

Bascially its not on my computer because I had it wiped and now when i come to print the scanner wont reponse

All scanners require you to install new driver and the software to make them usefull. The better the software the more things you can do with the scanner.Check with your install disk that came with your scanner or
go to web site that has your scanner and down load the driver and software it provides.
I have not found many software solution outside the scanner makers
and the one that came with your scanner will be the best.

Do I need to load software before using scanner?

Yes there is supposed to be software, but depending on how the scanner hooks up to the computer determines how you load the software. If it hooks up through usb cable , you load the software first and while it is installing, it will tell you to turn on the scanner at some point during installation. The older scanners you turn on first then load the software. Good luck and Hope this helps

I can print from the scanner, but it wont scan on to pc

Well, more details are needed here. But to start, uninstall any scaning software you got. Then install the Software package from the HP website. Then try again using this software and be sure to follow the step by step installation on the screen. If you have photoshop installed or some smiliar software, you could try to use the Acquire/Import from TWAIN option... should be in the file menu somewhere. This will try to import your scan in photoshop or your software directly. If it's still not working, give us more information about what happens, what you did to solve your problem so far.
