Scanning a full page takes approximately 55 seconds on my older Compaq 300 Mhz.  Just bought an HP9694 750 Mhz and scan time is almost 4 minutes/page.  The light bar indexes forward about an inch an back about a half inch at a time instead of one continuous scan of the page.  Any ideas?

Reboot PC. on first blue screen hit "F1". This should get into the BIOS. Right arrow across to "advanced" then arrow down to "I/O device config" and hit enter. Arrow down to "Parallel Port Mode", we need to change this to EPP. to do that use the + or - keys on the keypad. Once it is "EPP" hit escape key once then F10 key. The computer will now reboot and your scanner should work a little faster. Also lower your dpi settings. Hope this helps a bit

Uninstall all of the scanner software then reboot the pc if you have norton anti virus go into and disable the auto protect then reboot once in windows hit ctrl,alt,delete and end task everything except for explorer and systray then reinstall

if this does not work then try the following

1. Reduce the resolution you are scanning at
2. If you norton anti virus go to start programs norton anti virus and turn auto protect mode off

3. If you have had any previous scanners or digital camera's completely uninstall them

4. Go into your bios and try turning off powersaver mode

5. Go into your bios and check your parallel port mode make sure it is set to ECP you can also try EPP
