Do you have dial up? I'm pretty sure com port2 is your modem. You would hit "logo & pause" at the same time to pull up system properties/ hardware/ device manager. There you'll find your modem/ network adapter. Right click on yours/ update driver. If it doesn't find the right driver go to driver.com. This is a easy way to get them. Try not to do the searches for drivers in your system as they are full of 3rd. party garbage, if not viruses. You will have to enter the name you should find on your card/modem and it will give you the right driver.
If this doesn't work it is possible that your modem/ethernet card is bad and needs to be replaced.

Just bought the singer psw 2.0 used. The converter box lights flash when I plug it in then they don't turn on anymore. And so the program won't install without recognizing the converter box. Thank you


Are you using a USB to Serial cable to communicate with the box? You need to find out what COM port the cable is on, and reset it to either COM1 or COM2. In Windows, go to Device Manager, and click on the listing for "Ports." Double-click on the device, select the Ports tab (should be set on a 9600 Baud Rate) and the Advanced Button. At the bottom of the Box, you'll see a drop-down box with the current COM port assignment. Drop down the box and select the lowest number not in use. If both COM1 and COM2 ARE already in use, click on it anyway. It will ask for a confirmation, click Yes.

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.

I have the same printer, and xp on my pc, but how do i connect them? my laptop does not have a serial conection. i tried to use a usb/serial converter and i installed the xp driver from minolta website,...


You need to make sure you have selected the correct COM port whin you try to print. Depending on the type of USB to serial converter, the COM port it assigns can change just by moving it to another USB port. Right-click on My Computer and select MANAGE. Select Device Manager from the list. Click on the (+) next to PORTS and double-click on your USB-SERIAL device COM port. Somewhere in the Properties window you should be able to see the assigned COM port (COM1, COM2, etc.). If possible, set the COM port to COM1 or COM2 for greatest compatibility with older software. Then when you print, make sure your printer driver is also set to the same COM port.

I get error messages in device manager on standard floppy disk controller, communications port (com2), communications port (com3), and ecp printer port(lpt1). winxp


You can try fixing the problem by first dismantling all the connecting cables specially the cable that connects your hard drives and other removable disks to the mother board. Clean the terminal pins to both connectors, make sure that its free from dusts and dirt. Reassemble everything and see to it that they are properly connected before running your PC.

I keep getting a message about usb port missing


Hi hbailey10,

It sounds to me as though the USB port simply got reset and so it isn't communicating both ways (this can sometimes happen if you plug in or unplug a difference device in a nearby USB port). Here is my advice:

1) Try disconnecting the USB cable from your computer, wait 10 seconds, and then plug it back in.
2) If you still get the same error messagem then the problem is software-related, not hardware-related. You might try uninstalling and re-installing the driver for the printer. In the event that you don't have the disk from your printer handy, you can download the driver from the following web address:

http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi

If you still receive an error message, try to get the exact wording that we can figure out what's causing it.

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind regards,
H2H

I am getting communication errors. Error Message appears in the display "Your camera or PC is not ready." (Fuji DS, DX and MX digital cameras only)


Most of the time the problem is due to the serial port setting of your PC. Please follow instructions below. Cause Camera is not communicating to your PC. Remedy Please check the following. 1. Cable connection. 2. Camera is ON and in PC mode. 3. Camera's batteries are not exhausted. 4. Go to Communication setting from "Camera" and make sure proper COM port is selected. 5. If your PC has external input device, disable its driver such as "Hot Sync" or similar drivers. 6. If your PC supports PS2 mouse, please use it instead of serial mouse. Then one serial port is available for the Digital camera. 7. Check in the BIOS Setup Screen to make sure the serial port of the PC is not disabled. Also, if your personal computer is equipped with an internal modem or infrared port, it may cause conflicts with port assignments internally that will not allow communication with your camera and PC. In such case, it is necessary to change the COM port setting for serial port. For details, see the User's Manual for your personal computer, or ask at the store where you purchased your personal computer
