SOURCE: Intel Play QX3+ Microscope

Try a different computer and install the QX3Plus application (for Win 2K-XP). If it works okay, then completely remove (uninstall) it from your Dell 4600 and clean up the registry of unusable strings (try Advanced Registry Optimizer, its a free download). Then do a clean QX3Plus install BEFORE you plug in the USB cable. If the QX3 did not work on a different computer, the QX3 is faulty and maybe you should look at the QX5 as a replacement. The QX3 was discontinued at around the turn of the Century. However, if you are only missing the SPLAT; try locating the green button at the lower left corner of the image screen, it produces drop-down dialog boxes to splat screens. Good Luck!

SOURCE: need qx3 drivers for windows 7 64 bit

The Intel QX3 is not compatible with 64 bit operating systems. It will not work. Sorry.

You can either reinstall Windows 7 as a 32-bit version or purchase a QX5 model which is compatible with Windows 7 64-bit.

I bought this microscope at a yard sale and need the software or disc to make it operational


Intel keeps the drivers available here. I installed a few years ago on 64 bit Windows 7 and it works fine. I cannot remember for sure but think you may need to run in compatibility mode - cross that bridge when (if) you get to it.
