    The obvious question I'll start with is are you an administrator on your computer? Check this by right clicking the Start button. If you see the last 2 lines are Open All Users and Explore All Users the answer is yes. If not, you don't have sufficient privileges as a user . Let me know what you find out.

Your computer infected by virus. many virus did it and you should scan your computer with an uptodate antivirus software. You can also replace task manager function with process explorer here but it will only work in one time execution if the virus still there.
Or if you sure that your computer is clean and have admin ask him to enabled it.

I am unable to scan a document to save and them pull it up to a word processing program in order to edit it. I am using hp, 1200 series, version 2.10. Is there a version that would allow me to do...


If you want to edit a scan in a word processor, you'll need another program called OCR: optical character recognition. This program reads the scanned bitmap, tiff or jpeg, and converts it to text.

Whether or not an OCR program was bundled with your scanner or not is another story, and typically expects that you will use your existing scanner software to save an image to disk somewhere, in a format that OCR will understand.

You may wish to clarify whether the problem is the scanner (unable to scan), the driver that came with it (unable to save), or the OCR software (unable to export to word for editing).

How to Install Drivers to your computer ?


A device driver refers to a program (software) normally developed by the hardware manufacturer to allow it to interact with the computer system. This driver program is used by the different components and applications in the machine to execute a specific task like printing, DVD reading and writing, or connecting to the Internet among others. Device drivers are generally specific to the underlying Operating System and hardware, which means that the correct version must be installed to ensure proper operation of the supported device. You can do this by either re-installing the original driver for your device or to upgrade to new drivers.
Here are the steps on how to reinstall a device driver:
  1. Log on to your computer as an administrator
  2. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and click Manage
  3. Under System Tools, click Device Manager
  4. In the right pane, expand any of the categories to find the hardware you need to reinstall. Right-click the device, and then click Uninstall
  5. In the Confirm Device Removal dialog box, click the OK button
  6. If you see a message asking if you want to restart your computer, click Yes. You can also manually restart your computer
  7. After the restart, Windows should automatically detect and reinstall the hardware.
Upgrading drivers for pre-existing devices
  1. Open Windows Device Manager. In the Device Manager locate the device you wish to update the drivers for.
  2. Right-click the device and click Properties.
  3. In the Properties window click the Driver tab.
  4. Click the Update Driver button.
  5. In the Hardware Update Wizard point Windows to the location of the updated drivers on your hard disk drive.
  6. Once drivers have been installed, reboot.
After you computer has restarted, Windows will use the previous version of your driver. If you're still having difficulties getting the device to work properly, it's possible you're encountering a hardware issue and not an issue with the drivers. Refer to the troubleshooting steps for your hardware device for additional help and information.

    Microtek Scan Master 5900 hrdware error -3


    Code 3 The driver for this device might be corrupted, or your system may be running low on memory or other resources. (Code 3)

    Here are some things that you can try to resolve this problem.

    Close some open applications

    If the computer has insufficient memory to run the device, you can close some applications to make memory available. You can also check memory and system resources, and the virtual memory settings.
    • To check memory and system resources, open Task Manager. To open Task Manager, press CTRL+ALT+DELETE, and then click Task Manager.
    • To check virtual memory settings, right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings in the Performance area.
    Uninstall and reinstall the driver

    The device driver may have become corrupted. If the driver is corrupted, uninstall the driver from Device Manager and scan for new hardware to install the driver again.

    You may be prompted to provide the path of the driver. Windows may have the driver built-in, or may still have the driver files installed from the last time that you set up the device. However, sometimes, it will open the New Hardware Wizard which may ask for the driver. If you are asked for the driver and you do not have it, you can try to download the latest driver from the hardware vendor’s Web site.
    1. On the device Properties dialog box, click the Driver tab, and then click Uninstall. Follow the instructions.
    2. Restart your computer.
    3. Open Device Manager, click Action, and then click Scan for hardware changes. Follow the instructions.
    Install additional RAM

    You may have to install additional random access memory (RAM).

    Won't scan or copy


    Solution
    These errors are usually caused by a failed scan, a bad installation, communication problems or software conflicts. Follow the steps below until the problem is corrected.
    Step one: Restart the computer
    Close all programs and restart the computer. A required task might have stopped running or the system resources might have decreased due to tasks left running. Restarting the computer will refresh all Windows tasks as well as increase the available system resources.
    Step two: Check for the correct entries in the Device Manager
    Verify that the unit was installed on a DOT4 virtual port in the Device Manager.
    1. Right-click My Computer , and then click Properties .
    2. Click the Device Manager tab. (In Windows 2000 and XP, click the Hardware tab , and then click Device Manager .)
    Check the list of installed devices for references to DOT4. If there are no DOT4 references, the software has not installed correctly.
    If any of these entries are missing, the software did not install properly. Review the information in the HP document Troubleshooting Installation Issues for USB-Connected HP All-in-One Products in Microsoft(R) Windows (bpu01858) for installation assistance.
    Step three: Check for communication problems between the all-in-one and the computer
    Communication might have failed between the all-in-one and the computer. Review the information in the HP document USB Connected HP All-in-One's Software Reports a Disconnected or an Error Status (bpu01859) to check for communications problems between the HP all-in-one and the computer.
    Step four: Check the computer to see if it is infected with a computer virus
    If the all-in-one prints but will not scan correctly and does not show any symptoms of communications problems, the computer might be infected with a virus. Some viruses try to disable virus scanning software and in doing so disable scanning from the all-in-one. The following are symptoms a virus problem:
    • The scanning software works after installing the all-in-one software until the first time the computer is restarted.
    • In the Device Manager, opening the Properties of the Imaging Device entry will reveal a status of "code 19" or "code 28".
    • A Scanner Cannot be initialized error occurs. While this error may other reasons, a virus will cause this error.
    When the all-in-one is turned on and connected, follow the steps below to see if this is the problem:
    1. Right-click My Computer (click Start first in Windows XP) and then click Properties .
    2. Open the Device Manager:
      • Windows 98 and Me: Select the Device Manager tab.
      • Windows 2000 and XP: Select the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager .
    3. Locate the Imaging Device entry and click the plus (+) beside it. It may have an exclamation mark beside it.
    4. Right-click the all-in-one entry under Imaging Devices, and then click Properties .
    5. A Properties screen will open. Look at the Device status section.
    Hope it may helps;.

    My computer will not go to stand by or sleep mode


    Were you able to make the computer go to sleep mode before? Well what you can try doing is go to start, run and type msconfig, click ok. You will get the system configuration window, then go to the startup tab in the system configuration window and at the bottom of the window there is a button as disable all, click that and on the same window there are startup items, select the antivirus program and items that you would need to have at the task bar. Then click apply and ok. You will get a message to restart the computer. Click restart. As it restarts you will get a message saying that you have used the system configuration window, click do not show me the message again in the message. Also you can go to start, right click on My computer and go to properties, click the hardware tab, and select the device manager button. That would show you the device manager window. From the list of hardwares listed in the window, right click on network adaptors, properties and under the power management tab uncheck all the power options checkboxes. Now you can close all the windows and try to go to sleep mode again. You can also try disconnecting the USB devices as you try going to sleep mode and see if that works, if yes, try connecting the USB devices one at a time and check again.
