    what system are you using? Win98, Vista, Win 7 ? Is this a new unit that replaced an older one? Is there any way you can try it via USB port? Also, what brand/model of scanner?

    Beth, I have the all-in-one printer but it isnt wireless...and with yours being wireless I really cant say how/what would be the problem, less you have to install the hardware that came with the all-in-one printer to your PC???

    so, you've very recently upgraded?

    You may need to update your drivers, you need uninstall scanners and then reinstall.

    I posted the HP link in above post, but forgot to add this... :rolleyes:

    It will affect the printer also, I don't have much exp w/ Vista though. You will probably be best served to completely uninstall the device and then re-install with the software provided. What HP model is it?

    Hopefully it will. If it doesn't, then check the HP site and update the drivers, that should do it.

    I don't know the answer to her problem but I don't think you should help her any more till she shows us a picture of the Marlin 60 and scope. :D
