Umax Astra 2200 scanner needing to run in Vista

My old computer crash and had to buy a new one that came preloaded with vista. Is there a patch or updated driver so that I can make it work? Please help? Should I somehow go back to XP (I have the disk)?

    My new ASUS laptop also came with Vista OS. I recycled the old laptop and I may have the old laptop's xp discs -- not sure but I'll be looking. Any other way to add xp to the Vista laptop so I can run the Umax Astra 2200? (I am very dense on these things, so please speak slowly.) Thanks! Alonzo.,

    I have found that if you reboot before you use the scanner, it will work as normal - try this next time - it works for me - [email protected]

    My Umax 2200 USB scanner does not work in Vista Home Premium, fully updated to Sept 08. The TWAIN driver does not load from the original disk. Computer does not want to restart. Cannot uninstall the program Presto Page manager that has the TWAIN driver in. To restart choice is press the restart switch, get the screen up to revert to previous working condition. So far have not found a cure.

Hi, The Umax Support/Download (http://www.umax.com/download/index.jsp) do not have any patch/updated drivers for your scanner compatible with Vista. If the only issue that you would downgrade your operating system back to XP is because of the canner, it may not be necessary. It is possible to dual both allowing you a choice of Vista or XP. This is better explained at (http://apcmag.com/5485/dualbooting_vista_and_xp). This way you will retain the use of the new features of Vista in your new computer and yet when necessary make use of your previous devices that will only run in XP. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn out or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

Have you check the drivers and compatibly?

For your question, I suggest updating the graphic card driver and BIOS from the manufacture's site, also please right click the install file and choose run as administrator. If the issue persists, try to turn off UAC.

Lost the orginal version of vista


You can contact HP/Compaq and see if you can request a new copy from them, based on the serial number of your computer. Otherwise, you will have to buy a new copy of Vista, and download the drivers from the HP/Compaq site.

Updated to Windows Vista and now the Dell 922 AIO scanner won't work


For windows Vista; it is imperative to run the Vista patch which can be found on the Dell website (Downloads and drivers).
Make sure that you run the patch, after removing the printer USB cable from the computer. Restart the computer as the patch suggests and then install the Vista specific drivers, which also need to be downloaded from Dell Website.
Again, do not connect the printer unless the installation software asks you to.
For scanner issues, those who are unable to get anything scanned to their computer, and are able to print, it is essentialy a Firewall/Anti-virus issue. You can check that out by trying to scan using an application such as MSPaint (Start> type 'mspaint' > hit enter).
