    What model Cannon scanner? Mine is N1220U, and builtin Ubuntu scanner works very well. VueScan was the only one that worked for Windows.

    Booted "ultimate boot disc" and ran memtest. No errors (2 passes) Seems the memory is OK. My son (know more about computers than me) suggested removing hard drive and re-inserting (maybe bad connections) Also, I will confirm what brand the hard drive is and get proper utility to diagnose drive.

    Scanner is canon 9950f and I am aware of vuescan. Great software... not free, but affordable (will try it when I can) Also like turboprint for printing.

    Got ubuntu 16.04 to install, but had issues during install. Did restart and got message about graphics. Looked it up and I don't meet system requirements (RAM and graphics) Going back to ubuntu 12 0r 14. Don't really need windows because I'm using free version of viewscan.
