its possible that the driver for your older scanner is not compatible with vista this is often the case. the disc that came with your scanner will tell you this ie: for use with win 98, me, xp. if it doesnt say vista you will have to search internet for a vista driver or go to scanner make(ie: epson.logitek) internet site and see if there is a drver there. hope this helps

My hp 3300c scanner is not working with vista home

There are no specific drivers for your scanner for the Vista operating system. You might be able to get some use out of it if Vista tries to communicate with the scanner using some type of generic driver. Unfortunately if this doesn't work, your only recourse is to purchase a newer scanner.

Epson 3490 Scanner not communicating properly with PC

The new PC was Vista and the CD that came with the scanner completed loading a driver without complaint. However, a new driver was needed for Vista. After downloading the new driver from Epson, uninstalling the old driver and installing the new driver, it worked.

New driver

I searched through BenQ site as they were previousily Acer Communications or something which made this and other scanners and it only has drivers that are supported up to Windows XP.


That link will take you to the US driver download page for your scanner, change the country to whatever country you reside in. It may work with Vista if you run the driver update as a XP program with the compatibility wizard or when you install the scanner. If that doesn't work, I'm afraid you may just have to go buy a scanner that will run with Vista or an all in one printer that is supported in Vista.
