...following the instructions that HP provides for that issue? See the link below. (It would be nice to know the operating system though.. I'm guessing the old computer was Win98/ME and the new one is XP but it's not clear.) If XP, have you installed all Service Packs and updates?:
HP Scanjet - Resolving Slow or Halting Scanning, 'Not Enough Disk Space', or 'Not Enough Memory' Error Messages
Suggestions include changing the Virtual Memory settings, deleting ALL files from the "Temporary Internet Files" and "Temp" folders, using a USB connection instead of Parallel if that's what's being used, and reduce the image resolution..
By the way, I have NEVER needed to scan and item at such a high resolution.. A excellent quality picture can be scanned at 600 DPI which will print out great on an 8" X 10" or 11" X 14" photo paper. Why such a high resolution?.
Hope this helps.
Here is my Problem.
I Have to give a little bit of history because this has happened with my old computer as well.
In the Past i had a AMD Chip that was only 1.3GHZ it was not a 64 or a X2 chip it was just an amd Chip, with 512 MB Ram, 40 Gig Hard Drive, With more than 50% Free Space on it, and An External CD-RW/DVD Player. I had a PSC 1610 HP Printer, and I went to go scan a Photo at 2400 DPI, and at that resolution it came back with the Message "Not Enough System Resources to Complete this Operation" Which i accepted that Answer because i only had 68% of System Resources Available.
Now i have an ACER ASPIRE E360 with a 2.0GHZ X2 Dual Core Processor, 3GB Ram, 250 GB Hard Drive with over 85% Free space, DUAL LAYER DVD/R/RW-/+ Drive, + DVD Player, and I went to go do the Same Function SCAN at 2400 DPI and it came up with the Exact Same Results, Even though the Scanner's Max Resolution is well over 4800 DPI. Help me out here, My Computer Knowledge is Probably in the Intermediate to Low Advanced Knowledge. I appreciate any help that anyone can provide me. Protonic has not helped at all, one other place has completley ignored my question. So lets see what can happen here. Thanks in advance Everyone.
