Cannot get scanner to work

The scanner was working fine, then I had my system rebuilt - new motherboard, CPU and RaM - so had to reinstall all drivers. Since then, my i900 will not work. I've installed and reinstalled the Scanwizard Pro software (which includes drivers) many times. Have even called Microtek and they gave me instructions for a totally clean install where I had to go into the registry and delete the Microtek entry and still no go. After the most recent clean installed, it looked like it would work. I opened Scanwizard Pro, it asked me to calibrate and for the time being, I skipped it. I then clicked the Overview button and got the message: "Fail to read image. System error 31, a device attached to the system is not functioning." When I clicked out of that, I got a second message: "Code -1007, not enough memory for driver to work." I have 2 gig of RAM installed. I know the scanner is working because I was able to successfully install it on my laptop. I have also checked in Device Manager and it says the scanner if working properly. I'm wondering if there is some kind of device conflict - or would this show in the Device Manager? I did have a new HP DVD burner with LightScribe installed with my other hardware upgrades. Also, in some web searches on the first error message, did see the bios mentioned, but nothing that clearly related to my specific problem. I'm just wondering if the guys who rebuilt my system didn't do something in the bios that is causing this problem. I must admit I've always found the Scanmaker touchy in terms of installing drivers and getting it to work - I previously had the 8700. Can anyone offer help? I'm desperate! Thanks, Cynthia

    Ok, it's working. I hope my travails might help someone else. I had my scanner plugged into a 4 port USB 2 PCI card along with my mouse and printer.

    When I plugged the scanner directly into motherboard USB port, it worked!

Check for latest drivers Maybe your Mac O/S does not like it or a recent up date conflicts

This is a funny problem. Try & locate SCanwizard 5 files and delete them. Complete the registry deletion as suggested. Run scandisk. Install and uninstall Scanwizard 5.

Try placing your paper at different places on the scan bed. Also if you have fluorescent lights on nearby turn them off.
Also is your driver compatiible with your OS?
Did you recnently upgrade anythin?

SOURCE: can I install microtek scanmaker 8700 on imac

Microtek's last version was for 10.4 and is worth trying on 10.6. drv_sw5_v7_565_ad.dmg
Otherwise the popular VueScan supports virtually every scanner on the market. There is a free trial version to test your scanner here. http://www.hamrick.com http://www.hamrick.com/vuescan/vuescan.htm#microtek
I've used VueScan for over 5 years and it's much easier to use than than Silverfast. The only downside is you can't scan from inside PhotoShop etc. as it's a standalone application and not a plugin

Software Utilities are not only the solution for a PC to run proper, you also need to clean the hardware manually and periodically, have you ever cleaned your motherboard or other components during the nine months? if not there might be lots of dust clogged on the chips of the motherboard.. Remove everything which is connected on the motherboard, clean them on by one and don't forget to clean the CPU fan as well. and reconnect everything, and see the result. You also need to clean the bios battery to make sure everything is cleaned. Good luck...

System freezes up

Check whether you motherboard heat sink is working properly or not. If u find more dust on the heat sink and the processor unit remove it with a brush and then check the RAM slot, If you have the RAM working properly then the problem is solved. If the RAM is making the trouble to hang try to replace it with another RAM with the same frequency. This will work out.

No display on monitor

this lead to cpu overheating problem
clean your cpu fan and put some thermal grease between the fan and cpu

System won'n boot if i installed two RAMs


Is the old ram working if installed alone? If yes then maybe got error or grounded if both ram inserted. Try to blow air the ram slot in the board to eliminate dirt and then try to interchange the position of the ram and then try it again.

Hope this will work.


New Motherboard Problem

I believe you have a driver conflict
Check your BIOS is set for CPU etc.
And Uninstall all drivers And see if computer start with only the windows drivers present.
As if you have just installed windows and no M/board drivers.
And reinstall M/board drivers one at a time Should fix your problem

My computer is freezing up and cpu gets pegged at 100%

sounds like a virus. Run your virusscanner, spybot, adaware, in safe mode.
