1 Answer

First make sure that the scanner drivers and all the PSC drivers have been installed.
Or try to reinstall the printer drivers by removing all Hewlett Packard's applications from "add - remove programs" in the control panel. Then disconnect your printer and restart the computer.
When the PC finishes loading windows, insert the HP printer software CD while pressing SHIFT on the keyboard for 30 seconds. Connect the printer again and follow the "Found new hardware" wizard instructions. When a gray sandglass pops up, choose "Decline" or "Not agree" to the license terms and continue with the installation.
After that, try to scan again from Photoshop or another scanning program. Remember that in the reinstallation, you haven't installed the HP image zone software.

For a scanner driver it should not matter whether you have XP Home or XP Pro. Most probably there's a simple problem with the disc.
You can ask the vendor for a replacement disc, or go to manufacturer's website and find downloadable drivers & software there. However, on the website there may not be the full software set available, as usually scanners come with some bundled extra 3rd party software that cannot be made available online by the manufacturer for everyone to download.
The essential thing is to install the drivers properly, the other bells & whistles are not needed, you can use applications either built into the system, or available free online for image scanning and manipulation.
