Driver specific to vista and a critical update for unexpected uninstalls... Click Here
I also found this info that you may find helpful if having issues with the scanning after you do get it up and running...
the scanner cannot send image files to computer. So Please follow the below steps to adjust the printer driver.

1. Unplug all cables from the scanner and the scanner cable from the computer
2. Click "Start", type "APPWIZ.CPL" (without quotation marks) and press the "Enter" key.
3. Highlight any software or program related to the scanner and click "Change/Remove" to remove the driver.
4. Click "Start", type "DEVMGMT.MSC" (without quotation marks) and press the Enter key.

The operation requires administrative privileges, please click "Continue" when the User Account Control dialog-box appears.

5. Click "View" and select "Show hidden devices".
6. Click the "+" next to “Imaging Devices”. This will show all Imaging Devices previously and currently connected to the computer.
7. Right-click on the Scanner Band scanner name and left-click on “Uninstall”. If the scanner is listed more than one time, uninstall all occurrences of the scanner.
8. If you see “Other Devices” in the device manager list, click on the “+” to view the list of Other Devices.
9. Right-click on the other device and left-click on “Uninstall” from the list. The scanner may be listed as any of the following:

- USB Scanner
- USB Device
- Unknown Device
- 1200 DPI Scanner
- (Your Scanner Model)

10. Reboot the computer.

After that plug the scanner cable to the computer and turn it on.

Im using compaq laptop, installed with Vista Basic. when i turn it on it loads, but after that it remains blank, I am certain that it is not LCD problem. What can I do?

If you just recently installed Windows Vista Basic and all you get is a black screen with a white cursor that is blinking, then the operating system did not install properly.
Go ahead and reinstall the operating system using a Windows Vista Basic CD and let the installation go through all the way.
If the problem persists, I would recommend finding a boot CD that has mini XP and run check disk.
If you have more than 4KB in bad sectors, then your hard drive is failing and isn't able to write the Files properly to the hard drive from the Windows Vista Basic CD.
Also, check the memory using a tool called Memtest. If you have bad memory, that would also be the reason why an installation can't be done properly.

Hope this was helpful.

I have a windows vista basic laptopwhat version

Depends on what computer you have. Different Manufacturers package different software. Look in your programs for Roxio or Cyberlink or Nero. It should already be installed if it's a name brand computer. Good Luck.

I formatted my laptop wit Windows vista, It doesnt

if you formatted it then your probably going to have to get online via another computer, or a wifi connection if you have the drivers for it, and download the drivers, then install them to your laptop. By (re)installing vista (unless of course your using a recovery cd for that exact model) you ended up with nothing more then the basic OS with the absolute basic drivers.

If you have a full version of Windows Vista Ultimate, you can just insert the DVD when you logged in your laptop and go to Computer(My Computer) and lauch the installer for Windows on DVD icon (Double Click DVD icon). It will give you the main window for installing Windows and along the way, you should find an Upgrade option. Click that one and it will install windows Ultimate on your system. It Will not format the laptop but installer will just add system files and features to the laptop to run Vista Ultimate.

**If you haven't purhcase a Windows Vista Ultimate Disc, check this link to to purchase just an upgrade Disc (only) of Vista Ultimate.

An upgrade disc will also not format the laptop instead it will just install additional features and add additional files on the system to run Windows Vista Ultimate
