This is done in your BIOS. You need to enter the BIOS at boot time by pressing DEL or F2 or whatever it says during POST but before the operating system starts. Your question reflects a certain level of technical competence so I'll continue, with the advice that you can really mess things up tinkering in the BIOS. On the other hand most BIOSs include a useful "return to defaults" pick for just such occasions.

You need to reserve IRQ 4 for the COM 1/3 pair and/or IRQ 3 for the COM 2/4 pair without knowing which BIOS you have, I can't be more specific how this is accomplished. Your goal is to prevent the PCI bus allocator from stealing those IRQs. Obviously (?) you will need to verify that COM ports are enabled. This all presumes that your special sewing machine application wants to attach the COM port hardware and go around the operating system. At that level you'll need to fool with XP's DOS Compatibility mode settings. Assuming you have XP.

You might try reposting the question naming the operating system and the error or reason why you feel the need to "free up" the COM ports.

HI, I have inherited a LENA, limited edition sewing machine made by Husqvarna. It sounds a bit louder than I'm used to machines sounding...suggestions/comments/


Probably needs a good cleaning and oiling. I'm not familiar with this machine, but it sounds like an older machine, right? In general, older, all metal, mecanical sewing machines are just wonderful to sew with.

Good luck and let me know if a good cleaning solves the problem.

Old kenmore runs at choppy when trying to sew


Lubricate the machine. All metal against metal places. This should allow the machine to run smoother. This is an older machine and may need to be run full speed for a while to let it break free.

There is no free download available for model 6000 but you ca get a free download for model 6500 from the below link.Atleast you ca get some idea if you view the manual for 6500 as it is the same 6000 series.

Connection problem with computer to sewing machine and reader/writer


Hello,
It is not true that the 180 is not compatible with new software.
I'm owning a artista 180 from 2002 and just installed the software designer V5+ on a laptop with windows vista.
The only problem was that there was no serial port on the laptop, now I have a new cable with USB ans serial output and the software works very well !!
When you contact Bernina you will get the same answer.

greetings Carla

call the people who made your computer (hp, dell) and ask for a down grade to XP and that will solve most all your problems that you will have with vista. vista has built in things that you will not be able to run alot of your programs on.
