Coolscan 3 will work on my new pc with amd64 x2 processor
This did work on my old p4 machine but not on the new pc with athlon amd64 x2 processor. XP operating system with sp2. Have unistalled /reinstalled everything several times. Scanner is detected and device manager says it is working properly but no joy stand alone or though photoshop
If you check the Nikon website, I believe you will find that they do not supply a driver for XP SP2. I have the same scanner and it worked well with SP1 but will not under SP2 - all the same symptoms you describe. I believe it is something to do with the aspi layer in Windows that chaanged in SP2. %$@^%$##*&^%&^%(*%(. I've an old m/c running 98 that I have it connected to for the odd occasions I need it now.
I know some devices may not work properly or will not work period if your running a 64 Bit processor. I would recommend to contact the manufacture of your scanner & verify this. Possibly they may have 64bit drivers. Hope this was any help to you.

You need to goto the manufacturers website, find
their support section and there should be a list of drivers for your specific
machine. Installing these should resolve your problem. I have a list of links
to most manufacturers drivers on my website. Hope this helps, www.PuterCare.com
A small heatsink fan might very well be enough to dispel the heat on the northbridge. If you can find a small heatsink/fan would be a better solution, but doubtful that you'll be able to mount it on the chip if it's not setup for one to begin with. Try the heatsink, and go grab a $5-$10 case fan to help with some airflow. If the Athlon itself is heating up, getting a better cooling fan/heatsink combo. Alternately there are some liquid coolers out there that would definitely keep you cool, but they can be a little cumbersome.
In a word;no. You'd have to go with a whole new motherboard,etc,and considering the age of this system,you'd be much better off buying even a modest new computer,which will have modern,faster,and more upgradable components.Right now,about any AMD64 is quite affordable.
