HP C4480 will not scan a picture without locking up

My new HPC4480 won't scan a picture without locking up. All other features work properly. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the software 2x and uninstalled an old ScanSoft program that was on my computer. I have Vista Home Premium for an operating system.

    How do I know if I have the nvidia chip sets?



    I also have the problem with the HP C4480 where it will not scan a picture without locking up. Mine also will not photocopy. It does print, though.

If you happen to have the nvidia chip sets I can help you. First thing you want to do is un-install the printer. Use the un-install in the program itself an then go to add remove programs and make sure everything is gone. Then, check on your start menu and in your programs folder. Delete anything you find for hp. Reboot. Go and download the version 10 drivers. The version 11 drivers that come with the printer do not seem to work with nvidia chip sets. I had this same problem. As soon as I installed the older program my printer worked great. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=mp-57266-4&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&os=2093&product=3418705

My lexmark x7350 won't scan, it says failed to retrieve application, what should I do?


Try launching the scan from the computer. You may not have the monitor program running properly or you may need to reinstall the full feature software from http://support.lexmark.com/index?page=recommendedDownloads&locale=EN&productCode=LEXMARK_X7350&segment=DOWNLOAD&userlocale=EN_US#1 (select your OS). Uninstall and then reinstall; this will cure problems with the driver/software missing dlls.

Try a new data cable and a different port. Try a direct connection if you use a USB hub or print server. (Two-way communication is needed for the scanner to work.)

I hope this helps.

Scanner won't stay installed


When you install the printer software is it installed properly? if the printer is installed properly then you will do need to do the same step. First, uninstall the printer software by going to control panel > add/remove programs and then uninstall all the printer software. then go to control panel > printer and faxes if printer is present in the printer and faxes delete the printer. Restart the computer. Before reinstalling the printer software turn off your firewall, anti-virus, spyware if you have any. Then reinstall the printer. Try to scan again. if it works then try to restart your computer and scan again. it should work
