Looking for a driver for the Scanprisa 640u for Vista

I have purchased a laptop which only came with Vista. Not my favourite Operating System, but need to get my other periferals to work. Printers etc are OK but the scanner is proving to be a problem. Cant seem to find it any where on the net. Any support would be very greatful.

Drivers are available from BenQ for it. Up to XP that is.

If you need it to work under Vista then get VueScan I am using my 640U under vista 64bit. Tried other methods like trying to get the xp driver to work but never had any success. Had it up and running with in minutes with this, and it supports alot of older scanners.

Drivers for XP and under can be downloaded from BenQ's website.

For Vista you'll need an aftermark app called VueScan. I am using my 640U under vista 64bit. Tried other methods like trying to get the xp driver to work but never had any success. Had it up and running with in minutes with this, and it supports alot of older scanners.
