Need to download windows vista to install my hp psc 1410 all-in-one printer-scanner-copier to my new computer.


why??? If your computer is New it should have VISTA on it, or Windows XP, which is compatible with all printer scanner types. All you need to do is use the installation disk you got from the all- in -one-printer-scanner-copier and insert it into the disk drive and let it load up and follow instructions. if you do NOT have the disk--go to the website of the maker of the all-in-one and download the thing from there.

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

Iwant to install software for a Canoscan LiDE 35, scanner, to load the toolbox the software says I need Windows 2000 or better, I have Vista, it will not load


this program is not compatable wiht vista is sound like you have a older model of scanner. when they say 2000 or better they mean up to xp. you might try going to vista and see if they have a update driver for that kind of scanner.

hope that works

I need a driver for an acer 6678-owe flatbed scanner for windows vista


I searched pretty hard and couldn't find any Vista drivers. I assume that scanner is relatively old. You can try this, but I don't know if your scanner has software:

Go to Start, then Control Panel, Programs, and under Program Features you'll see something that says "Use an older program with this version of Windows." Try messing with that and see if you can figure anything out. But I'm pretty sure there are no Vista drivers for that scanner.

Scanjet 5400c won't scan in Vista Home Premium


Unfortunately, your scanner is not compatible with Windows Vista and there are no drivers available to make it compatible. I found the following message on the HP website when I searched for Vista drivers for your product:

We are sorry to inform you that there will be no Windows Vista support available for your HP product. Therefore your product will not work with Windows Vista. If you are using the Windows Vista operating system on your computer, please consider upgrading to a newer HP product that is supported on Windows Vista. HP has numerous products on the market that support Windows Vista. If you are in the US, see http://www.hp.com/united-states/tradein/home_flash.html . If you are outside the US, click the How to buy link at the top of the page.

Camera and scanner no longer recognised


On Windows 2000, XP, and Vista, you can get to Device Manager by right clicking on your desktop's "My Computer" (or "Computer" for Vista) and select "Properties". Then click the "Hardware" tab. Then click the "Device Manager" button (Vista may be slightly different).

As for why they are recognized on your friend's laptop but not yours, it's going to depend on what operating systems both are running and what the brand/models of the camera and scanner are. If there are drivers required to run the camera and scanner, try uninstalling and reinstalling them.

There are some compatiblity problems between Vista and your printer. Check this web page to download a driver that may provide limited printing capability for your printer...you'll need to use Windows Scanners and Cameras or Photo Gallery for scanning.
