I have many years repairing Canon Scanners so maybe I can help you.

I assume you are running Windows 7 because of how you worded your question. I went to Canon's website to see what drivers were available for you there. The closest thing they have is Vista drivers which may or may not work for you. But its worth a try to install them they are close to Window 7 drivers. Try and install them this way.

First unplug the cable from you scanner to your computer.

Second go here http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/scanners/canoscan_series/canoscan_n1240u#DriversAndSoftware

(copy this whole line into your web browser or click on it to see if it will take you there) Then download the drivers from Canons website and install them. On install it will tell you that the drivers are not digitally signed for your operating system do you still want to install them just say YES and complete the install.

Third once the drivers install it may ask you to plug in your scanner (make sure your scanner is powered on and ready to use) then plug it in. If at the end of the driver install it doesn't ask you to plug in your scanner then just plug it in but make sure it is powered on and ready to use.

Fourth A window may pop up after you plug in your scanner to your computer and it should say a new device or drivers are being installed. Once this completes its install I want you to reboot (restart) your computer. Once your computer comes back up after the reboot you should be able to scan.

If this does not work as I described it to you then contact canon either by phone or email and ask for drivers for Windows 7 or even beta drivers if they even have those available yet.

I hope this helps you out and if it does please give me a YES that you were helped. Thank you.

Is adobe photoshop elements 3 compatible with windows 7


Hi,

I want to mention that Photoshop Elements 3 is not tested with the Windows 7.

If you have a windows 7 64 bit operating System then it may not even install in it. If you have a 32 bit Operating System then you can try to install it. However it may still not work even on a Windows 7 32 bit Operation System as it was not made and tested for this Operating System.


There is a probability that if you install the Windows XP mode on you Windows 7 operating system then it may work.
Check more about installing Windows XP mode here:

Not sure what you have done so far. You need to divide your hard drive into two sections. Install XP first on to one section. Then use a program to manage your computer start up, the one I use is called Easy BCD this is a free program and works great. Once you cut your hard drive and install XP make a copy of your start up partition. Install the Easy BCD program and make a back up again. Then Install Win 7. Then on the Win7 side install the Easy BDC program and set up the menu choices. I run a 3 way boot with XP and Ubuntu. Hope this helps Fix Ya up.

Can i install windows-xp on my laptop which is currently working on windows-7 and use both of them.


Hi,
Yes you can install windows xp in windows 7.
Windows XP Mode is a virtual PC image of Windows XP Service Pack 3 that could be run on Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise or Ultimate versions. Applications installed into Windows XP Mode could be run in Desktop Mode or Seamless Mode. In Seamless Mode, applications appear to run natively within Windows 7, but they are actually running inside the Windows XP virtual machine. Windows XP Mode might also provide additional integration that traditional Virtual PC images might not be giving. Applications installed on the Windows XP image could be exposed to the Windows 7 Start menu. Applications run in seamless mode is having automatic access to the Windows 7 known folders like Documents, Pictures, Desktop, Music, etc. Also the Cut-and-paste is enabled between native Windows 7 applications and those running in Windows XP Mode. Applications running in Windows XP Mode might also access your Windows 7 network connection and USB devices.

Trying to install windows 7. said I needed


Are you installing within Windows? If so reboot your system with the Windows 7 system disc inside your cd rom, you should see message that says Press Any Key To Boot From CD at this point press any key. The system will load the installation files the it will ask you if you want to install or perform recovery you will select install, then it will ask you if you want to format your hard drive. Formatting your hard drive will erase the entire drive so back up any desired files. This will successfully install windows 7.

Can i install windows 7 on hp 530 core duo


Yes, you can install Windows 7 on Hp 530 series Notebook.But HP doesn't release any drivers for your notebook for Windows 7.

You install Windows 7 and try to install drivers which are meant for Windows Vista.

If you are trying to install Windows 7 Ultimate or bussiness edition then try to install Windows vista bussiness driver (32-bit).

you can download the driver from the link below

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=3375995&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=3375953&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=2096

If you are trying to install Windows 7 Home edition then try to install Windows vista Home driver (32-bit).

you can download the driver from the link below

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=3375995&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=3375953&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=2094

Remember to check whether the Windows 7 is 32 bit not 64 bit version.

Most probably all the drivers will work fine as 90% of the drivers which are meant for windows Vista works fine with windows 7.

Even if you have miss out some drivers or not able to install,you can download "Driver Genius Pro" using the link below

http://hotfile.com/dl/9305335/2e7a110/29Genius.rar.html

It's full version and you will be able to update or download the lastest drivers from the manufacturer sites directly using that software.

Hope you enjoy Windows 7.
