    I have the HP Scanjet 4200C and I can't get it to work with Vista. The CD says it only works with 98. I tried to find software on Windows Update, or my computer did, I even tried to copy the files from the CD to my hard disk, creating a new folder. I rebooted in safe mode, because your CD isn't recognized in safe mode. I accessed the setup.exe from my hard disk, clicked on setup and it gave me the same error message. It stated it only works windows 98. That's funny because it worked fine when I had Windows ME. What about compatibility mode? Sheesh! Can anyone help me with some advice OTHER than buying a new scanner? I know there are some experts out there somewhere!!! Thanks in advance.

I used the HP latest driver download named sj655en.exe from their website and after 29months of not working, it DID and DOES work now!
The HP Precision Scan LT interface has a little problem of "save as" naming your file since it does not show the file name but you can just add the file name to the folder name and then it'll save your scan.
All of my apps work fine using the import function to the HP Precision Scan LT application.
Since I know HP did NOT update their driver, I'm guessing it's Microsoft having changed something with Vista Home Premium.
Good luck with your re-try of getting the old HP4200C Scanjet working again on your Vista operting system.

    Update to Vista Servicepack1 and HP's sj655en.exe last update of the drivers for the HP4200C Scanjet and it should work.

I want to know if my monitor is Vista compatable


Yes, the monitor is Vista compatible. A monitor is just a display device, simply showing you what's coming from the computer's video card. That video circuitry is what would need to be compatible with Vista.

If you are upgrading an older computer by installing Vista, you might need to be concerned about video hardware compatibility. If you are upgrading by simply replacing the computer with a new one, it will already be Vista ready. In either case, the monitor will be fine.

Please take a moment to rate this solution if you've found it what you need, and thanks for asking here!
