DeskScanII and PB5300c beeping

I recently installed (with extentions off, from original disks) the HP DeskScanII v2.3(yes this is the latest version) that came with my HP ScanJet 4c scanner into my PowerBook 5300c/750/24M/Syst 7.5.5. When I try to use the software it keeps beeping. Short, quick, system beeps. The software still works okay but the beeping is annoying. If it is launched from another application such as photoshop through a twain acquire it does not beep. Only happens when this application is launched directly.
Prior to installing this on my PowerBook I was using it on my Performa 575/12M/System 7.1P6 without any problems. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!

Carla,

Check to see if HP realy wanted you to install after booting with extensions off. In many cases you should be booting up with "7.5.x only" (as set from the Extensions Manager rather) than extensios off.

I think you should do a clean install of the system software. I dont think you can do a quick "reinstall" o 7.5.5, you have to start from 7.5.1 and then install 7.5.3 and thend 7.5.5. Then reboot with "7.5.5 extensions only" and then try installing the HP software. over that.
