I don't know this particular scanner but since it is an USB device.....
Are you sure you're powersupply can handle the load ?
If the scanner doesn't have a seperate power-supply it derives it's power
from the USB cable, in other words the PC power-supply.
Add a power-hungry video-card like a Geforce (32MB ram probably)
and a problem is born.
It only happens at bootup time because at that moment all devices are
and the HD is spinning up simultaneously and thus causing maximum drain
on the power-supply.
You probably get the same problem when you add addional HD's as well.
Most ATX power-supplies are 135 Watts. This is very minimalistic for todays
fast CPU/big video-card and ATA66/100 systems. Get a 180 or even better a
230 Watts supply and you should be fine. At least if I'm right about the
