Is this a new install of XP (from 98 perhaps) or did you just re-install, YAMA? If it's a new install, you'll need updated drivers to run the scanner. The Keyboard's language can be changed at Control Panel > Regional and Language OPtions > Languages tab > Details button.

Oh and turn off the CAPS LOCK.

Your scanner might be a rebadged Mustek 1200. Have you tried the PBell website click here for an XP driver.?

if its a 1200 or 1200+ scanner or 2400 or 2450 and you have xp or an sis650 chipset then get the patch click here or click here click here click here

That you give your post a relevant name like

"Problems with XP install scanner not reconised"

That way other people can see if it is something that they can help without having to go into the thread.

Please bare in mind thet if you are using a dial up connection reading lots of posts can be very time consuming.

I hope this helps you for next time.

Go to your scanner's website and see if they've got an XP driver. If your drive is working OK for everything else then I doubt it that you'll need a new drive.
