Hp officejet g85 scanner/ installation and a key question
Posted on 2002-07-08
Hello, I have a NEW computer containing ASUS p4b266 -2Ghz, 512Mb Samsung ram, 80Gb 8Mb cache hdd, tdk 32 burner, pioneer 16x dvd, Matrox g550 video and Inwin q2000 case. My HP g85 all-in-one printer parallel connection seems to be unreliable and slow.
1.) Would installing USB solve the following and/or would parallel be best: It seems to take a long time to scan a picture and then while the picture comes over appearing to be the full picture it get chopped in half (vertically) Sometimes it doesn't find the scanner and I have downloaded the HP uninstaller and purchased the latest HP driver on cd. The best order of installation is to connect parallel cable, boot up, and follow PnP requests to the cdrom for driver info, etc.
2.) I am also disappointed that ADAMANT.com has failed to send a key to my new Inwin Q2000 case I ust bought from them. They say Inwin no longer includes the keys with the case. One reason for paying extra for the case was to lock it up away from my young children's fingers. Any suggestions there?
