It sounds like an IRQ-conflict,
which is triggered as Windows loads the Device Driver(s).
Disconnect the scanner, so that Windows will boot,
and use the Hardware Manager to see which IRQs are used,
i.e., IRQ #6 for Floppy Drive, IRQ #14 for IDE disk, etc.

Remove the device, if it is present in Control Panels.

Does the scanner have jumpers which set the IRQ it will use?
If so, change the jumpers, and re-insert the hardware,
and reboot.
