Hi! After format and install a version of Windows 2000 Pro in my computer, I tried to install my scanner (HP ScanJet 5p) with SCSI card Symbios Logic 53C416 but unfortelly I couldn't.
First time , when I install the card, connect the scanner and start the windows, it's detect the card and the model scanner correctly, and I can work with ir without problems. The problem exist when I simply restart, or shutdown, the system. When the windows boots the scanner no longer exist, only the scsi card.
I tried reinstall all drivers and scanner software but the problem still continue. If I format the disk and install the windows again, the scanner works ok on the first time, but in the first reboot, I lost it again. Can you help me?
It may also be a notion of the drivers not being supported by Windows 2000, due to the age of the scanner. I have a printer like that. It has unsupported W2K drivers, and it works fine. But I cannot boot up the machine with the printer on, or it will not work. I boot up, and then I turn the printer on and everything is fine. You might try that trick with your scanner and see if it helps.
