Code 3 The driver for this device might be corrupted, or your system may be running low on memory or other resources. (Code 3)

Here are some things that you can try to resolve this problem.

Close some open applications

If the computer has insufficient memory to run the device, you can close some applications to make memory available. You can also check memory and system resources, and the virtual memory settings.

  • To check memory and system resources, open Task Manager. To open Task Manager, press CTRL+ALT+DELETE, and then click Task Manager.
  • To check virtual memory settings, right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings in the Performance area.
Uninstall and reinstall the driver

The device driver may have become corrupted. If the driver is corrupted, uninstall the driver from Device Manager and scan for new hardware to install the driver again.

You may be prompted to provide the path of the driver. Windows may have the driver built-in, or may still have the driver files installed from the last time that you set up the device. However, sometimes, it will open the New Hardware Wizard which may ask for the driver. If you are asked for the driver and you do not have it, you can try to download the latest driver from the hardware vendor’s Web site.
  1. On the device Properties dialog box, click the Driver tab, and then click Uninstall. Follow the instructions.
  2. Restart your computer.
  3. Open Device Manager, click Action, and then click Scan for hardware changes. Follow the instructions.
Install additional RAM

You may have to install additional random access memory (RAM).

Is there any way to install ScanMaster on Win7 64bit?


Hi Alex,

Your scanner seems to be an old one and the latest driver from Microtek is for Windows XP. Have you tried installing the WinXP driver in "Compatibility Mode"?

To do so right click the Installer > Properties > Compatibility > Check XP

OR

Try not to install by double clicking on the Install.exe or Setup.exe Instead try a manual setup by going to Control Panel and selecting Add New Hardware and going to the page/window where you get the option "Have Disk..." and there you could search for and point to the relevant .inf (info) file from the setup folder to enable the OS to pick it up and install it from there.

I feel that trying either of the two above options could solve your problem. Please let me know, what ever the result.

Good luck to you Alex.

Error 600


I bought the pro version of the 8700, used it about once a month--very light use. When it died, I found that Microtek won't even sell parts! I agree, NEVER buy another Microtek product! This thing cost me over a $1000 and after one year, NO support! Any company but Microtek.
