Drivers for 3970 HP scanner

HP 3970 scanner
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I recently had a new hard drive installed in my Gateway desk top.  I have a HP 3970 scanner which will not work now due to no drivers being available. I have run the tool on the HP website which says no drivers available.   I always thought the drivers for a device such as this scanner were on the install disc that came with it. I  I have run it with no success.  Yes I know this stuff is old but I want to be sure I have checked all my options before I buy a new one.

Hi,

the scanner is not supported on Windows 10.

 

Please find below support document as a reference:

While no drivers are provided by the manufacturer, you may try the 3rd party Vuescan application which should work with your scanner with its own drivers:
