HP scanjet 3970 (Q3190A)

[ Edited ]

Can anyone help? My new computer has Vista (business). I want to install my trusty scanjet 3970 on it. I can't seem to be able to figure it out. I installed the driver from the hp website. It apprears to be there (?)
a.) How can I be sure? b.) Does anyone have a link for all the other necessary components to complete install??

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time and effort!!!
Rich

Hi Rich,

I think you installed the only driver available for Vista:
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15...

Only driver, no software is included:
<< This is the minimum driver required for basic WIA functionality. This driver enables scanning with the Windows Photo Gallery or Paint on Windows Vista. Scanning can also be done with a variety of 3rd party scanner enabled applications >>

Rememember to connect the scanner to the PC after installing the driver. In Programs&Features in the control panel the software should be listed after the installation.
