Software loads but HP solution center won't open

Had computer reimaged, software reloaded. Stalls at 96% for @ 10 min then completes without any info. Printer works but no fax or scanner. Desktop shortcut and direct link to HP solution center will not open program. Error message states that no HP product has been detected and HP Solution center will shut down. All software appears to be installed but some interface seems to be missing which won't launch the program to access the fax and scan modes.

I would recommend un installing "any" HP software first, then download and install the latest driver from HPs site. You could could also try running the installer with all startup apps disabled incase there is some conflicting software. You can do this by typing in "msconfig" from start > run. Once open select "selective startup" then uncheck "load startup items". If you resort to this be sure you have unintstalled all HP software first as some HP software does run at startup. Also be sure to re-enable the startup items after troubleshooting.

When turning Buck Hunter Pro on i am getting an error message error 0x01 Loading Linux - 2.6.12-bs thei text keeps repeating on the screen.

You most probably have a hard drive problem, corrupt software or less likely a motherboard problem. First step is to reimage the hard drive. You need an install disk to do this. If one isn't present you can obtain one from a distributor such as Betson in the US or Brent Electronic in the UK. After turning the machine on open the coin door and press the DVD button on the computer to open the DVD drive's door. Insert the disk and close the door. Turn the power off then back on again. The software will now install, and follow any instructions. If the game doesn't run properly you will need specialist help. I would suggest sending the core computer to a distributor or specialist dealer for testing and repair.

HP C7180 photosmart Scan problem

first: the C7180 will only work in ONE mode: wireless or wired. End of story there.
second: I spent almost 4 hours, yesterday, fixing this problem - "would not scan to computer because printer did not recognize computer for scanning yet would print & copy ok". I did solve the problem! Here is what I did: 1) removed all software related to C7180 ( make sure it is all gone ). 2) turned off all firewalls & security measures to ensure a clean, uninterrupted reinstall ( be sure internet connection is off for this to be safe ). 3) reloaded software ( hopefully you have the cd for this ). 4) followed all prompts for reload of software & then rebooted computer & tested copy mode, fax and finally scan. 5) went to HP site & made sure I had all updates & everything was ok with drivers. It was. I now have a clean install & all works as it should. The whole process ( after I figured out that it was a software problem ) took about 1 hour. Don't forget to reset your computer security! Be sure your firewall knows all HP software is good & firewall will let it thru.
This should do it.
