The scanner in question is not supported under Windows 7 as it is quite aged. I've seen reports of people getting drivers for the same scanner under windows XP and running them in compatibility mode, but these are hackish at best and may or may not work.
As it stands, there is no supported driver for the Microtek 3840 under Windows 7.
If running XP SP2, then try clicking Start > right click My Computer > properties > Hardware tab > Device Manager button > expand Imaging devices > right click on your Microtek ScanMaker > uninstall > Re boot > and let XP pick up the device and let the found hardware wizard configure it.
I have seen plenty of hardware that when following the devices manufacturer's instructions for install, such problems as you're having occur and XP SP2 usually will cure it, though you may still need the device manufacturer's CD (for the driver) in your optical drive.
