Open Port Error

When I plug my receiver in to my computer it tells me I have an '' Open Port Error''. This is what the troubleshoot tells me .......

Problem caused by PL-2303 USB-to-Serial Port Adapter This problem was caused by a compatibility issue between this version of Windows and PL-2303 USB-to-Serial Port Adapter.
This product is usually distributed by the company that manufactured your device or computer.
Note
If you bought PL-2303 USB-to-Serial Port Adapter from a retailer and installed it yourself, you will need to contact its manufacturer.

Any Help would be great !!

I suspect that the "Portable Media Serial Number Service" local service is not running.

You can check this by opening the Control Panel<AdministrativeTools<Services. Look for the above service and make sure it is running. If not set it for "Automatic" and click the "Apply" button, then "Start" by right clicking the service and click "Properties".

Let me know if this works!

You will find many programs (and therefore hardware devices) that are NOT supported by Vista. Many drivers have not been written yet. You very well will not find any drivers that work with this device.

Spyder mouse won't work


I had a similar problem. I corrected by performing a manual connect as listed in the manual that came with the mouse.
Manual reconnect:
1. Plug in the receiver.
2. Turn on the mouse.
3. Press the button on the receiver.
4. Press the connect button on the mouse once within five seconds of pressing the button on the receiver.

This worked for me, and the mouse has worked fine since.

If this doesn't work. The manual suggested taking the batteries out of the mouse for 20 seconds and unplugging the receiver, then repeat the steps above.
If that doesn't work. reboot the computer and repeat the steps above.

Hope this helps.

Boot error shutting down


That only means that the USB port is not updated. It can detect USB devices so all you need to do is to update the drivers of the USB port on your computer or you may try different USB port on your computer.

If you want to update the USB port on your computer you may go to device manger, right click my computer and go to properties then hardware and then device manager. From there you look on the USB device right click and hit update, you may use internet to update the drivers on the device.

If problem still the same thing you may try other's computers USB port and check if it will happen again.

Hope this works!

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

No dial tone detected


It may be a bad modem on the copier. Plug your phone into the auxillary phone port on the copier and see if you get a dial tone. Also make sure that your cord from the wall is plugged into the line port and not the phone port.
