View Full Version : Scanner uses 100% of CPU



14-06-2000, 10:47 AM
I have a HP5100c Scanner. I have used it on both of my computers; Ones Win95 and the other Win982nd. I have not had any problems before like this one.

The problem is when I try using it, the software called HP Precision scan becomes unstable.
Meaning the cursor cannot move and I have to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete keys to close so windows will respond.

I also have Norton Utilities monitoring my computer, but strangely when I try accesing the scanner, the program is unstable, and my CPU reading jumps to a massive 100% which didn't do before.

I have tried lots of things, reinstalling the software, windows, drivers,etc..

What can I do from here onwards? Can this be a memory problem?
