If the above links, do not solve the problem, try a Google search, which may help in your quest.

Your scanner is a Primax scanner and the driver can be found here click here

Normally there's a link or a hotspot which asks if you want to download the files, wave the rodent around until a little hand appears - probably worth creating a Temp (or some such) folder to store them in and then saving them to a CD if you can; scanners can be a real pain in the backside, especially older ones so you can save some time if you already have the drivers.
Don't forget to run Windows Update every so often; this sometimes helps or use BigFix at click here.
Hope this helps
