Go to Microtek's web site and re-download the drivers for your particular scanner for your version of Vista.

Motherboard Driver


"Many BIOSTAR motherboards may have passed certain Windows 7 tests but that does not mean that Windows 7 drivers are available from BIOSTAR."

Do this after the windows 7 installation is completed, go to start, programs, windows update and complete all the updates, If this doesn`t helf keep updating as they are available.
Windows 7 is fairly new and some drivers are not yet available. In time, just hang in there.
Hope this helps.

The same scan error too.


Hello,

You have to make sure that the scanner/printer driver is installed on the Vista system. Otherwise, it will not be detected. You can obtain the driver from Canon's download page and choose the one for Windows Vista.

HP C3180 printer doesn't work after Microsoft updates (vista)


Check the Windows Update history and see which updates were just installed. You can manually remove individual updates - note they will appear again. You can also use the Windows System Restore to go back in time, but the updates will still be applied again so try to determine the update that caused the issues and you can select to ignore the update using custom Windows Update settings (set it to check for updates but not automatically install.

Need new software to download scanner information from cd as cd is for windows98/2000/millennium only and my new computor is windows vista.


Downloading the software from the cd wont help you. But you can just try running it and seeing if it will install. Windows Vista needs specific drivers for scanners, if it doesnt detect the scanner and install it then you need to go to the scanner manufacturer website and see if they have an update. or you can use a progra like VueScan, it doesnt need the drivers installed it will install the scanner and allow you to scan whatever u need

Hope that helps

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).
