I was looking all around at one point for drivers for either XP, or Win2K, but each time the silly HP site kept telling me to look at the upgrade instructions which do not work on a Native XP, or Win2K install. I had to take an older machine, flatten it, then install Windows 98 SE first, and install the scanner into the fresh Windows 98 SE.

Fresh installs 500c not supported. I was looking all around at one point for drivers for either XP, or Win2K, but each time the silly HP site kept telling me to look at the upgrade instructions which do not work on a Native XP, or Win2K install.
All times are GMT Only thing that helped was xo use a C driver as it’s backwards compatible, and it was – It went through with the installation, so I looked in device manager, and it had a question mark by the scanner entry, and I tried to “update” it and it xxp to go through fine, did it’s file copying, etc.
Unplug the scanner from v power by pulling out the cord on the back of the scanner.
After that I had to upgrade the Win98 SE to Windows and the scanner has been working fine since then. I read all through the HP support including what you wrote. See the link below.
HP Scanjet 5100C with Windows XP
First the only thing on LPT1 is the scanner. At the moment, I have no need for a colour printer but when I do, I will certainly look at the model you have mentioned.
Are there drivers available for this HP product? Has anyone actually worked through this problem and can you give me some correct help?
I’m also surprised you couldn’t use the older scanner in Administrator mode and then using compatibility. I am really impressed with this unit.
Have you tried to connect the printer sp Windows 7 is running using a USB cable? Net is the opinions of its users.

Windows OS still has the most drivers and is much more user friendly. I can say though, the first computer I had was installed with win98 and my film scanner also on win98 works fine under my xp pro computer even now. The problem is that the instructions on the website are for upgrade versions only, in my case it would not work at all with XP Pro. Copyright -Tech Support Forum.
That would allow the scanner to work when needed. I am using a mono laser printer HP which I’ve had for years and it is still working so will keep persevering with it. That’s why I look at posts like this hoping that maybe someone has found a way to make it work on XP since HP definitely is not 5100d to address the issue.
In the meantime, I watch this post to see what comes of it. I am still using the scanner this way, but in the case when someone does not have the extra machine and really needs to be able to scan, this could force them to buy new hardware, which is just wrong, in my opinion. Hi Othehill Thank you for your reply and interest. I wish HP would get this particular scanner to work with a patch, but sadly 5100cc does not If you need your printer x use an switch box or get an LPT2 extra card to put in your computer.
I 510c got lucky though, in a manner of speaking. MS says that XP has a built-in driver for that that scanner. It is called VueScan.
Such opinions may not be accurate and they are to be used at your own risk. I have been searching to give you additional info about your scanner. This one tip will help you sleep better tonight A few seconds are all you need to get a better night’s rest. Haven’t tried your suggestions yet as Xl been playing around with Windows XP virtual – trying to retrieve my Quark Xpress v5 files but to no avail. If you have an extra WinXP license you are not using you could dual boot.
Try again from safe 5010c.
