It may sound silly but is your scanner definately turned on?
If it is, then have you tried reinstallig the drivers that came with the scanner?
I assume by the title that you run XP. Has this always been the case or is XP a new addition?

ive had scanner running for the last 6mths,got hit by virus,have reinstalled the drivers and even downloaded driver for xp,its all set up,but when i try to open scanner it says switch scanner on.

Try unplugging scanner & remove it's software, reboot
Reinstall software & then plug in scanner
Assume AGFA is USB, may need to first remove it from within 'Device Manager' is its down as 'unknown device'
Good Luck

i have followed all the advice,but its still not working,and the scanner is definatly on,only now the computer says it doesnt detect it.what now?

You've probably already done this but from Control Panel/Scanners and Cameras/add imageing hardware - on left hand side - gone through the wizard.?
Also, mine once said it couldn't be found and it was just that the plug wasn't pushed in firmly.

all done,computer does not detect it,when i plug it in it does work it makes a tune,should i be running this with anything else,did have photo express but lost that to,not clever enough to make backup copies.
