The answer to PC / scanner problems is (in my humble opinion) a programme called VueScan. Download a trial version for free and the paid-for version is under $40.
It is a nice program for scanners that are not provided with drivers any more but if the problem lies elsewhere in hard ware the VueScan will not help.
