The desktop is going into the shop early tomorrow afternoon..the adjustments and changes didn;t really fix the main problem….so am not sure how long the laptop will be in use! The problem with the laptop(besides that it uses Vista) is that is uses…but besides that most of my programs and particularly the ones associated with the scanner don’t work with the Vista OS….there is a patch on the HP website, but llike so many other things it doesn;t want to work! Contacting HP tech suppot told me that they could talk to me for $25.00 with of course no guaruntee that the problem would be solved.Oh well….I will keep trying various things but the odds are that the scanner won’t be able to be used for as long as i am no the laptop.

In the meantime, here are so alphabet letters that were scanned in the small window between desktop problems.
