The scanner works with two different files running in the background HPQTRA08.exe and HPQSTE08.exe .
If one of the file is not running you will not be able to scan from solution centre. So follow the documents i am sending you. I am sure you will be able to scan soon.

Won't scan, light doesn't come on

Make sure the printer can copy (without computer). If you can make copies, the problem may be the computer or the USB cable. If the printer does not copy also. The problem is in the scanner or in the flat cable.

My Keyboard does not type very well on online sites. it works well in word

If the hardware works fine in some places, but not good in others, it is not a hardware problem. If you can type in word, and wordpad and notepad without any issues, but certain websites or gaming sites or even video games give you trouble, there is nothing wrong with the hardware. If it is failing on websites, that could be a website issue, or a web browser issue. In a nutshell, it sounds like you have a software bug, or possibly even some sort of key-logger happening, making your typing erratic on websites. In my opinion, it sounds like you might need to scan your pc for spyware and virus issues, possibly even prepare for a reformat. Sorry for the trouble, good luck.
