Fax And Scan Full Setup


Windows 7 fax and scan. I am still having trouble with windows fax and scan. When i had windows xp i used windows fax console as the fax software. I simply scanned the fax message into a word document and used the fax wizard to send off the fax. I wish to do a similar thing in windows 7 fax and scan but i always end up with attachments which i do not understand.

Is this attachment sequence the new thing - i am certainly not used to it? I am also unable to send any fax though the fax settings are correct. When i try to send a fax reference is made to a fax server. I have set up the program to be used with an external fax modem - a fax server should not be involved. The fax printer present in the printers folder in windows xp is missing in windows 7.
Do i need this ?

Saving Scan File As Date And Time Using Win 7 Fax And Scan

A friend has a brother 8840d all-in-one printer. He used to be able to use the scan function on the printer and send the scan in .jpg to the computer running xp with a unique name that had the date and time embedded in the name ie: 111709214200001.jpg.
 
He doesn't have the windows 7 driver to use the scan function as above but the windows 7 fax and scan viewer will let him scan. Question: is there a way to default win7 fax and scan to save a scan with a name similar to above that would have the date incorporated? I now saves it as img01, img02. I am still running xp so i don't have the ability to check.

I have a new hp with windows 7. I'm trying to scan in legal size docs. With my printer/scan/fax machine. The scan fax application in windows 7 doesn't show a paper size option for legal size paper. I could perform this operation on my old xp computer. Did microsoft forget to add legal size parameters in this application?

Fax Sending Problem

I have been trying to send a fax for a long time now and it constantly says that the call had not been answered. I have looked over everything i could find on the internet and it does not seem that i am doing anything wrong. I have uninstalled / reinstalled windows fax and scan a couple of times but it seems to do no good. I still get the same message. One thing i noticed when reading the forums is that if i were to uninstall windows fax and scan and i were to reinstall it again , trying to send a fax for the first time, the fax wizard would pop up and lead me through the setup of the fax.

This wizard never comes up after the very first time that i set it up. I dont think i did anything wrong during the fax setup. The only thing that i entered was my area code. When i try to send a fax i hear the dialing tone and the fax tone for quite some time but in the end i get the same problem that i have described.

Automatically Answer Certain Fax Numbers

I setup my laptop to send/receive faxes just for those times where i might need to send a fax and i don't have time to run anywhere. However at the moment my fax number along with my home phone number are exactly the same, what i would like to do is to have contacts with fax numbers and be able to select which ones to automatically answer if they call. This way i don't have to worry about certain faxes from people and also not have issues if someone calls to talk to me and for it to go to the answering machine.

I know this isn't the ideal situation but i don't want to get a separate line just for 1 or 2 faxes every month.

Fax From Scanner Yields Black Image

Set up: epson 500 perfection photo scanner, win 7 ultimate 64, 8 g ram  intel i860/intel dp 55kg motherboard. I just transferred the scanner from my vista ultimate setup where it worked in all modes.
Under win 7 all modes work except when i use the file-new-fax from scanner mode. The scanner tif image is just a black page. If i use the new scan menu, the tif image is perfect. Under the new scan mode jpg's are fine. I can send a fax by using the new scan menu, and then the forward as fax menu.
I reviewed all settings from my vista setup but cannot find a key to what setup is different.

Fax Stopped Working For Sending And Receiving

This is a new higher end windows 7 intel based i5 computer with 8gb of memory. I have been using the windows fax and scan successfully before. When i went to receive a fax that area was grayed out. I lost all of my history of previous faxes. The name with fax number directory was still there. I manually copied the few listings. I also found i could not send faxes. It seems that in the print directory the print to fax name looks different. But i can't be sure. It now says " fax, microsoft shared fax driver" .

I confirmed that the fax is operational and the wires are connected properly by going online via a dial up network. So, i would think it's in the fax program software.

I tried to remove and reinstall the program, but in the control panel under remove programs i couldn't find it. Also, i'm not sure where to get the program to reinstall. I do have the windows 7 ultimate disk available. I tried going to "tools", then "fax settings". The blue circle circled and the window said, "not responding". Then it stopped. In other words, i cannot access the settings.

Dell Photo 966 Aio Can't Fax

I have a dell studio 15 notebook, with windows 7 home premium, 64x. Printer is a dell photo 966aio. The fax option for printer should show up as a 2nd device but it doesn't show up so i can't fax. Dell told me there was something wrong with this printer (although it works with the other 2 dells we have) and i ordered a different model aio. Same thing happened with that- no option for a fax printer - sent printer back after spending 7 hours on the phone with a dell tech. Any suggestions? I've removed and reinstalled the printer several times but no fax option shows up.

Use Other Application To Scan

I'm using the dutch version of windows 7 home premium. When i click on "scan properties" in the context menu of a scanner, under the tab "events" there are no applications listed to handle scan data. When i press the scan button on my scanner (canon pixma mp250) windows asks which program i want to use but the list is empty. I have several applications that are capable of this, how can i tell windows to use them?

Please note that i don't want to use the manufacturer application, drivers are correctly installed though.

Dvd Drive Not Recognized Unless Scan For Hardware Changes

I have 2 ide optical drives in my desktop, a sony ddu1612 dvd-rom (cable select in the slave position), and a pioneer dvr-116d dvd-rw (cable select in the master position).

These worked great until i installed windows 7, and actually still work great. The only problem is that each time the computer is booted, the pioneer will not show up until i go into device manager, under dvd/cd-rom drives and "scan for hardware changes" (the sony is always recognized as it should be) - then everything works fine, until i reboot the system.

Is there a permanent way to fix this so that both devices are automatically recognized each boot?

Bitlocker Message - Do You Want To Scan And Fix Drive

I'm using windows 7 ultimate 32 bit on a 3 drive desktop pc, using bitlocker to encrypt drives d and e. After several weeks without any issues i'm now finding that every time i unlock drive d after booting up i get a message saying there are disk errors and asking me whether i want to scan and fix drive d. Or continue without doing so. If i confirm a scan and fix, the pc will take about 90 minutes to complete the task but then report that no errors are to be found, yet the next time i reboot the machine, exactly the same message appears.

If i continue but ignore the 'error' there's no problem until a scheduled backup to drive e is due, which then fails, telling me it can't backup drive d because there are errors on it:( i've run registry mechanic to fix any registry errors but this hasn't eliminated the problem, and i'm now at a loss to know what to do. Does anyone have any suggestions what steps to take to resolve this?

Import Scan Error Access Denied

Hp scanjet 4600 scans and imports ok in admin user account but not in my personal one that is also admin account. Scan proceeds ok until import is attempted. Subdirectory and file name is created (visible in windows explorer) in the target location but the wizard aborts before completing the save and indicates that the import could not be completed: access denied. The only way to get out of this loop is to cancel and answer yes to delete the file. Any ideas what is causing this or interfering with the import function?

Sleep Interferes With Backups And Virus Scan

I'm running windows 7 on a dell desktop (optiplex gx620) i'm having a problem with some scheduled tasks that are scheduled to run during the night.

My system is using the "balanced" power option with the "put the computer to sleep" setting = 2 hours. I assume that this means that the computer goes into sleep 2 hours after i have stopped using it. I usually reboot the computer when i finish using it in the evening.

I have a seagate black armor ws100 external usb drive. It comes with its own backup software (apparently written by acronis). I have scheduled backups to occur at 3 am every night. I have checked the "validate after backup" box on the backup description. When i look at the backup log file, it appears that the backups do begin properly at 3am, but the validate job doesn't begin until i wake the computer in the morning.

I thought this must be a bug in the backup software, but i noticed something strange about my symantec antivirus software. That is scheduled to do a full system scan at 11pm every friday night. I noticed that it had begun its scan before i went to bed friday night. However, when i checked sat morning around 8am, the backup job was not finished. My impression was that it stopped sometime during the night, and restarted when i woke the computer in the morning.

Is there something wrong with the way i have power settings configured?

I am at a lose of what to do and school is just starting. I hope he don't need it soon. Can anyone help? Thank you for you time and any help you may be able to give.

Taskbar Getting Full

I think, at least for me, i have found one thing about windows 7 that i am unhappy about; the quick launch task bar. With xp i could put as many programs on my bar as i wanted. When the 'visual' space got full then you could click on a little arrow and the rest would pop up in a little window. Unfortunately 7 doesn't seem to have that. So far the only way i have found to increase space was to increase the size of the the task bar from one line to multiples.

I don't loke a fat task bar. I like the thin one. Takes up less space on the monitor and i like to be able to view as much as i can without scrolling to much. Ergo. Thin task bar. So my question is. Is there any way to get the task bar to pop up the little window with the rest of my icons?

Upgrade Or Full Version?

Last fall, i bought a brand new hp laptop. It runs on vista (oem version). I would like to install windows 7 on the laptop since i'm not fully satisfied. Knowing that i have the oem version and i will reformat the hard disk. Should i buy the upgrade or the full version? If i buy the upgrade version, how can windows 7 recognize that i already have a vista license if the disk is reformatted? I don't know the vista license number and where to find it.
