I tray to changing 3 new keyboards but still reads the problem. What's your problem?


OK what type of keyboard are you using Serial or USB? A serial type keyboard has a round end that plugs into the computer's PURPLE port (the Green Port is for the mouse).

A USB type keyboard has a flat end that plugs into one of the computer's usb ports.

If you are using a Serial (Round end) type keyboard, it is not Plug and Play (meaning you cannot unplug it or plug it in while the computer is running or it will not be recognized). You can only plug or unplug the serial keyboard when the computer is off. If you turn the computer off and plug it in good then reboot and you still have a problem then since you have tried 3 different keyboards, maybe the Purple Serial Port where the keyboard plugs into the computer is bad. Try a USB Type Keyboard.

A USB (Flat end) keyboard is Plug and Play. You can unplug and plug it while the computer is on. Also you have the luxury of plugging it into any one of the computer's usb ports.

Can i add a serial port to this acer L310


There's no place to install an internal card to add serial ports, but you can use a serial-to-USB adapter. These are available online and possibly at a retail computer store if there is one near you. It has a USB plug on the computer end and the DB-9 serial connector on the other end for your serial device.

The PCI serial port doesn't operate cash drawer


Check your windows firewall program. Make sure your firewall is not blocking the cash draw. Your cash draw program is like a internet connection and the firewall program would be blocking it.

How to map usb ports USB1, 2, etc.


You don't map the Universal Serial Buss. You just hook all the devices to the connection points (ports). The computer find them by device, MAC address, etc., not by port number. You can hook up to 127 devices to a computer, and the computer will talk to all of them regardless the physical point of connection. That's the reason, you can buy USB hubs with 4 or more connection points that plug into an USB port (how do you map that?).
USB1 - 6 is for you to know how many devices are connected to the computer via USB at a certain time.
So if your printer is configured for USB1, what ever port you plug that printer in, will be USB1.

Comm 1/ no serial ports not responding.


Ok, if the hard drive already had Windows XP on it, it has the configuration for the computer it came out of.  you need to reinstall windows xp with the hard drive in your computer so it can properly detect all the ports that your computer has.

The Mouse will plug into a serial ( com port ) if it's an older serial mouse.

( You'll want to put the mouse on serial port 2 )
/ in case you have an internal modem sitting on com 1 or 3 and taking up IRQ4 which would conflict with the mouse /
/ or in case of modem being on come 2 or 4 and using IRQ3 , just move the mouse over to com 1 /

Or the green colored PS/2 port if it's a PS/2 type mouse.

Might be your com port is creating problem.If u have checked your motherboard bios for com port to be enable and all serial devices are working fine on another machien then there is also a chance for attaching another com port in your pc.Find out the second com port and attach one serial cable.
