I believe is pointless to try to install the HP Scanner CD Software!
If I'm right the HP scanner you're dealing is one of the type series 4150 models.
Apparently, Microsoft has acknowledged that "Precision Image Software" LT provided within the HP installation CD can not be recognised by Windows Me in particular.
The installation could be carried out under a different Win OS.
A Solution to the problem is to utilise WIA (Windows Image Acquisition" Software provided by the WinMe itself.
Please trace WIA in Microsoft support centre and in particular in the one dealing specifically with WinMe.
There you'll be able to trace the article related to your problem.
Sorry for not having the Microsoft link at hand to include it in this post!
I wish you luck! I'm certain the solution is there.
