    HP LaserJet 3050 Scanner Not Recognized (Printing works)

    I just upgraded from 7 to 10 and now I cannot scan on my HP LaserJet 3050. The 3050 is recognized as a printer and I can print fine, but it is not recognized as a scanner. I have tried Windows Fax and Scan to no avail. I have the original install disk, but it will not install as I get a "Run as" error. I have tried running as administrator and even activated the default administrator account to no avail. I still get the "Run as" error on the default administrator account. I tried downloading various drivers from HP, but nothing worked. Any suggestions?

    Hey, did you find a solution anywhere else. I've updated the driver to my moms hp officejet pro 8500 and it's still not printing even when hp said welcome back. I went to hp's website to find the driver. You got any ideas? It didn't say it was compatible or not for mine, so I have no clue what the issue is.
