Question about HP Scanjet 5400c Flatbed Scanner

2 Answers

Precision Pro 3.1

I just bought a new Dell laptop with Vista Home premium.

When I plgged in the USB from the HP 5400C scanner, it said that the driver loaded. But it doesn't even see the disc when I try to load the Precision Pro 3.1 software. The drive in my laptop sees other disks and the disk works fine from my desktop PC. Is there somewhere else I can get the required software? Any ideas? Thanks!!

Old Lexmark 1200 printer not working with new Dell Studio laptop


you need to go to the "lexmark.com website" and download the new "vista" driver, it was looking for XP, and they are two different programs, also you can go to "control panel", and Open scanners and Printers, and see if the vista "hardware wizard" picks it up, and installs it too, let me know if this helps, god bless......

I have a Memorex U48 Flat Bed Scanner and have bought a new compouter with Vista. I need a driver download to work with Windows Vista. Thanks jreowens@aol.com


get the winXP driver MEMu1.50 (still available), there are no Vista drivers. Run the installation using WinXP emulation in Vista. You must run the installation as if you are in XP, not necessary when using the scanner subsequently. Now the Memorex 48u works on a Dell Dimension, running Windows Vista Home Premium. Hope this helps. I got the scannner for $14 after rebates at Staples years ago, it won't die.

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.
