My printer has problems printing since I started using Window xp. The problem is worst when printing colour as everything appears blurred, I have been imformed that the driver that comes with the windows cd is correct, I use a duel boot system on my computer and when I boot with windows me there are no problems. xp is the primery boot and I prefer to use this.

I would look at HP's website and download the newest drivers regardless.  Many times the driver that comes with the OS "works" but is not the best one.  Besides that, since the OS was released, there may have been fixes published that the OS version wouldn't have.  If it works in Me, but not XP, it is definitely a driver issue.

There isn't a driver at HP's website they only explain how to install the driver from the windows disk.

If you want some help in that regard, provide details on the make and model of the scanner, check the manual for connection recommendations, etc.  The scanner is likely shown as an unknown device in Device Manager, but unclear, given we know too little about your environment, still.
