    It's a long shot but see if you can get the ScanGear software for XP to install before connecting the driver
    Vista will complain and won't install the driver correctly but Windows should correctly identify the scanner when it's connected then Vista can see if can find a compatible driver on the Web.
    This won't work for W7 and Microsoft don't list this model in their comptibility lists for Vista or W7 so replacement does look likely :(

    An alternative to buying a new scanner is to have :
    1.) Separate PC running compatible OS (linked to network)
    2.) Dual boot system

    First option is better in my opinion ....(not just for scanners but also for
    problematic software-hardware).If you have a scanner that has no drivers
    yet (I also have a scanner Benq Scan2Web for which there are no drivers),
    then use one of the 2 options.
