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
