I dumped my HP MFD and bought an Epson. Not as good (or expensive) but it works wth Win 7.
My HP laserjet MFD never did. It installed the Win 7 drivers when they fianlly came out, but then it would lose them periodicallyand tell me they had to be reinstalled.

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit

I have Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit installed. For about a month I have been searching for a way to make my hp scanjet 5470c work. Several days ago I read a response to this problem in another forum. The solution was to download a shareware program called FreeKapture, install it and the scanner should work. Having tried everything else that sounded resonable, I gave this a shot. Immediately Precision Scan Pro 3.1 and my scanner began to perform as it had for years in XP. When you start FreeKapture and click Scan a window comes up in which you need to select precisionscan pro. After that use precision scan as you have done in the past.

This worked for me and is a lot better than discarding a great scanner.

Windows 7 Professional x64

Sounds good and reasonable. Thanks will give it a try.
And yeah it's a great scanner, nowadays scanners are much badder especially for non flat objects so it would be insane to just throw it away.
