scanner doesnt have a driver for windows 7


This may help. Depending on your version of windows 7 you may be able to run Windows XP as a virtual machine and still user your scanner under XP Mode. You will have to install the XP driver for your scanner on the XP virtual machine running on your Windows 7 computer.

Windows 7 has several built-in tools to help with program compatibility and Windows XP programs should be installed directly on Windows 7. Windows XP Mode runs many older Windows XP productivity programs and that are not natively compatible with Windows 7, thus helping realize cost savings and reduce possible operational downtime by extending the life of existing software.

HERE is the direct link to instructions on downloading and using XP Mode on Windows 7

i have recently installed a window 7, but software cd which i have of hp f4288, that is the old version, that is not installing on this window what should i do now/


Its possible that your f4288 software CD only has drivers for Windows XP or older operating systems. Unfortunately they are not compatible with Windows 7. Try going to the HP website and look at the support area for the F4288, see if they have updated Windows 7 drivers or look for Vista drivers if Windows 7 are not available (as Vista drivers are supposed to be compatible with Windows 7). If Windows 7 (or Vista) drivers are not available on the HP website you are out of luck for now until HP releases new drivers.
