5510 hp printer
I recently purchased a Dell Inspiron Vista computer. I can print from the computer but I cannot scan. Can you help me? my old computer was XP Home and it did work well.
HP multi function machine generally have poor driver support and are IMO hard wired junk. True to form, HP doesn't bother to provide a Vista driver for your unit. A VISTA driver 'should' make your machine 'scan' just fine. Har. Try following the instructions to load up the VISTA 'scan' driver. Har. (Hint: Canon).
