Are you by chance trying to print in "Fast Normal" mode? The pre-installed Vista driver for the HP PSC series is definitely buggy, but I've had success in many programs that wouldn't print at first by sticking to Fast, Normal, and Best print modes in the "Print Properties" window. Also, don't attempt to install the software from the disc that came with the printer if you're using Vista. The software isn't compatible with Vista and will wreak havoc on your system.
You can also go to your device manager and uninstall the driver, then go to Windows Update to try and get the most recent version through the Windows website. Good Luck.

I see that you are having issue booting into windows on your machine and that you are getting black screen and a blinking cursor.
The issue you are experiencing can be a Hard Drive issue not being detected on the machine or possible something else is wrong with the system to be able findo ut we try doind some steps to check the machine.
>First turn the Machine OFF.
>Turn the Machine ON again then Keep on tapping F12 on your system to boot into the Boot Menu, or if it shows on the screen Press F11 Boot Menu then you should press F11 if your system uses F11 but in regular machine F12 is the Boot Menu.
>Once you have the Boot Menu Screen it should give you options from your Hard Drive to the DVD drive on your machine.
> Select you Hard Drive it should be the first on the list highlighted in Blue then press Enter on it to boot into your Hard Drive.
>Check if this will boot into your Hard Drive if it does not then, possible your Hard Drive is nto detected.
>If you can try to reseat your Hard Drvie from the machine just to see if it went loose, then try restarting the system again and see if it will boot into windows.
>If still the system will still not boot into windows then try setting the BIOS to defaults then restart the machine agian if still the issue is the same then most probably your Hard drive may need replacing.
Tom, your solution is incorrect. I have just got my Canoscan working fine with Vista, simply using Canon's official XP drivers and unpacking them in XP compatibility mode. Is working fine with just a bit of experimentation. (You need the Canon toolbox software too, all of which is available from canon.com)
