u can download software in
Installing a scanner
on newer PCs is pretty straight-forward. If the scanner
is a USB
device, you'll need
CD that came with the scanner
. These will normally be one or two disks and a few others that usually only prove to be trial software
or other programs you do not need
. Be wary of installing these third-party CDs
, as you likely will never use them and they tend to want to take over the way media is handled on your computer.
First, unpack the scanner
from the box. Make sure you have all of the attachments and especially the quick setup instructions if they were in the box. You can assemble the scanner
and set if off to the side. You can plug the power cable in, but do not plug the USB
cable into the computer.
Boot up the computer and load the scanner software
disk into the CD ROM drive. If it does not launch automatically, you can navigate to it through My Computer and click the setup.exe file. If there are additional disks for your scanner
to be loaded, you will be prompted for them.
Once the software
has been installed, you can then attach the USB
cable to the computer. Windows should find the new scanner
and load the drivers for it automatically.
Troubleshooting Scanner Problems:
If your scanner
had worked in the past but has stopped functioning, you can usually unplug the scanner
, then go to Add / Remove Programs in the Control Panel and remove the scanning software
. Then you can repeat the installation process above.
