Question about Palm IIIxe

Open Question

Software prevents computer Stand By

The dock for my Palm IIIxe is plugged into the COM1 port. Whenever the system tries to go into a standby mode, this message pops up: "The device driver for the 'Communications Port (COM1)'device is preventing the machine from entering standby. Please close all applications and try again. If the problem persists, you may need to update this driver." I've tried removing the dock and the software (using the "Remove programs" tool), reinstalling the software usingine the most recent available, and every possible combination of these things, with complete system shutdowns in between each. It doesn't help. Is there something left hanging in a registry or somewhere that needs deletion? I realize that I may lose the use of the dock, but that's preferable to all the shut down/turn ons that I'm doing. I'm running XP on a custom system.

Communication port is not working properly


COM1 and COM2 refer to a computer's communications, or serial, ports. COM1 ports are often used on older PCs to connect network devices, digital cameras and mice. Faulty drivers software that enables the hardware to communicate with the operating system or incorrect hardware configuration can influence COM1 behavior. In rare cases, the expansion card that adds the serial ports to the PC can fail, rendering both COM1 and COM2 ports useless. To repair a COM1 port, you must determine what is preventing the port from working before attempting a solution.

Click "Start." Go to "Control Panel" and then click "Hardware & Sound." Select "Device Manager" from the submenu. Expand "Ports (COM & LPT)." Double-click "COM1." Review Device Status on the General tab to check for problems with the software driver. If the message "The Device Is Working Properly" appears, click "OK" to close the window; otherwise, look up the error message on Microsoft Support. Follow the directions in the Knowledge Base to correct the issue. Press "Alt" and "V" to open View. Scroll to "Resources by Type." Press "Enter." Double-click "Interrupt Request (IRQ)" to see a list of devices. Double-click "Communications Port (COM1)." Check the term to the left of COM1 to see if the card uses an ISA or PCI interface. If the card uses a PCI interface, it can use the same IRQ as another PCI device without producing a hardware conflict. If the device is ISA, it needs its own IRQ. Go to the "Resources" tab. If "No Conflicts" appears in the Conflicting Device List, close the window; otherwise, uncheck "Use Automatic Settings." Click the drop-down menu and select each configuration until the port no longer interferes with another device. If conflicts occur with each configuration, double-click "IRQ"; you may need to try different configurations before Windows gives you permission to edit the interrupt request. Click the up or down arrow to change the IRQ until the message "No Devices Are Conflicting" appears in the Conflict Information field. Click "OK" to close each window. Click "Yes" when prompted. Connect a device to the COM1 port to test the port. If the device doesn't respond, shut down the computer and then unplug the power cable. Disconnect all devices from the back of the PC. Remove the case cover and touch the computer's chassis. Set the computer on its side so that the PCI and ISA cards sit at a 90-degree angle to the floor. Find the serial ports on the back of the PC. Look on the opposite side of the case to find the associated card. Shine a flashlight onto the card and make sure that the copper contacts are not visible. If you can see the contacts, reseat the card in its slot so that it's fully installed to the motherboard. Reassemble the case and boot into Windows to test the COM1 port. If the port still fails to work, you may need to replace the serial port card.

Tried to start up Palm IIIxe after a couple years and it seems to not work at all. Is there a trick or something special that needs to be done to it? I tried the reset button, but that didn't work either.


A very basic question would be if you've fully charged the battery pack. It is very likely to have gone dead in the interim, which means you'll have to reload everything (other than the ROM-based software that came with it) once the unit returns to life.

That "in-op" COM port is in fact, probably defective. Had many cases where 1 works/1 doesn't. Buy a cheap, PCI COM port board, install the software, and plug away!
