See this - http://www.hp.com/cposupport/scanners/support_doc/bps01965.html.  As a side note, although the scanner is parallel it connected a very special unique parallel card that fit into the computer, not the standard parallel port for the printer.  If you don't have this card, your scanner is a paperweight.

Try and load m/soft generic twain drivers for the scanner. Else contact HP to purchase original s/ware, it is a lot cheaper than a new scanner.

TheRat has a good suggestion except nothing about this scanner is plug and play.  There needs to be scanner drivers for it and the Microsoft ones don't work for the board to fire it up.  

rusan, you have the correct version of Deskscan - see if you can follow the links for software distribution from this URL - http://www.hp.com/cposupport/mail_support.html to locate that version.  

That's some old board, isn't it?  Kinda reminds you of a cookie - Chips Ahoy!!!

Yes scanner is twain complient. But I have researched further and generic twains will not help. I have searched the net for you to find original software. Sorry I ran out of time. You will need HPdeskscan II v2.3.1a to get this scanner working. D/scan 2.8 does not have the drivers for the propriety card.
I had a good laugh at the Chips-Ahoy comment from johlari.
