Thank you for using FixYa

If Win7 did not recognize the scanner, you will need to go the manufacturer? of the scanner and see if you can download a new driver. It is possible, that there has not been a new driver written for it, and in that case it may not work al all.
Try this link for campatable drivers.

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

It's an external drive, you should be able to just plug it in and go.

If you are using windows 7, a lot of older scanners are not recognised, the solution to this is a program called VueScan available from loads of places, just use google to find it. It will work with most scanners and will have a driver that saves you buying a new scanner, I have used it with 10 year old scanners and not had a problem with win 7 32 or 64bit os

I recently purchased a dell studio 1737 laptop, it only has a 60gb hdd, so i purchased a 120gb hdd, but i cannot load windows 7, anyone help? thanks in advance


Check the AHCI setting in the Bios or System Setup and make sure it says SATA or Large Drive Support.

If it is on SATA change it and see what happens.

Toshiba Satelite A150-S4184,Hasent been used much,It was verry fast, now have internet again and loads very slow and takes long time to load pages,I think auto downloads instales windows 7,What can I


How much memory do you have in your Toshiba Satelite laptop?
Windows XP with Service Pack 3 needs a minimum of 1GB but ideally would run better with 2GB.

Windows 7 would need the same but there is no auto-update process to go from XP to 7 as this is not allowed - you would have to do a Custom install of Windows 7 which requires a clean install (i.e. format the hard drive and start from scratch).

If you are running XP with less than 1GB memory, then you need to check what the maximum memory that the laptop can be upgraded to?

The easiest method is to use the Crucial Memory web site System Scanner utility which will detect how much memory is installed and advise how much you can upgrade to according to the options available for the specific make & model of laptop.

If the laptop hasn't been turned on or on-line for a long time then you may be using a lot of resources downloading Microsoft critical updates plus updates for other installed programs like iTunes, QuickTime, Java etc.

Try downloading and installing a copy of the free Advanced System Care 5 utility then running the Deep Care tools which include System Optimisation and clean-up utilities to improve system performance.

You can run software that says it is designed for WindowsCE. This is not the same as full Windows (xp, vista, 7) so normal windows programs will not work.

I have an old windows xp laptop. I use xerox documate 510 as a scanner with it. I just bought a new laptop with windows 7 and tried installing the cd so I can use the scanner. I am getting error messages...


I would say that the software will not run on Windows 7. You'll have to go to the Xerox site to look for Win7 compatible software.
There are several good 3rd party scanning programs that will probably work.

Snapscan 1212u and windows 7


I have found out the hard way that Windows 7 is exactly like Vista - i.e. incompatible with perfectly working equipment - for several PCI add-on cards and my trusted 1212u scanner. My solution: I'm ditching Windows 7 and going for Ubuntu. It supports the 1212u fine with the SANE package. It's ridiculously wasteful to toss working peripherals just because Microsoft can't be bothered to offer decent support for its paid software.

Microtk Scanmaker 3840 driver for windows 7


The scanner is not supported by Microtek for Win7. Since Windows 7 didn't find a generic driver (TWAIN) in its driver code, one option exists in Windows 7 Pro and Ultimate. Download and install the virtual XP mode (two programs are needed), then use the XP drivers and install the scanner to the "XP computer". You may need to store files on external media to transfer them between the "two" computers.

The XP drivers are here:

I hope this helps.
