I have (2) 1.1 USB ports that says they do not reconise the divice when i plug a divice in , and (1) 2.0 USB port that does nothing but when i go into device managment and check the USB controllers it...


I would suggest two things:

1) Get a different USB device and make sure it works in the ports.

2) Make sure the USB device you want to use is recongnized on another computer. (If possible)

If you have the Vista OS that came on a USB then it is not designed to work on 1.1 USB ports but it should work on the 2.0 port.

Can not find or activate comport 1 on windows Vista


Com port referes to a serial port. It looks like a monitor port only smaller. Since yuo connect via USB, it may be that the locator software is set to use Serial port or Comm Prot. See if it can be changed to USB. Perhaps load the software before or after plugin in the unit, that may make a differernce.

Hi,
You can find the set-up manual of your printer here.....www.lexmark.com/publications/eng/8300/index.html
I need you to make sure that the driver you are using to install the LEXMARK 8300 is compatible with VISTA.
you can download them at, www.driversplanet.com/device.php?id=107349

Before installing the new driver you have to uninstall the old one. If the system is not permitting to uninstall the driver, then try installing the new driver by the following steps:
ensure your printer is connected to your computer and the power is on

 1.) click start / right click computer and select properties
2.) click device manager

3.) Click View then show hidden devices

4.) right click on the printer and click uninstall

5.) Unplug your printer usb from your computer

6.) RESTART

7.) INSTALL THE PRINTER WITH THE VISTA DRIVERS YOU DOWNLOADED..

 REMEMBER NOT TO PLUG IN YOUR PRINTER UNTIL THE SETUP SOFTWARE TELLS YOU TO DO SO.



Hope my info will solve your problem, Thanx for using fixya, Good luck.

XP to Vista


Hello Paulraven,
You can use an external USB DVD ROM drive, put the Vista disk in it and you will be able to install it via USB (once XP is fully Booted).
If you want to Boot to the Vista disk using a USB port, then you should check your Boot Order in your BIOS and make sure that you set it to check CD/DVD drives before the hard drive, then you'll be able to touch any key on reboot to Boot to CD for a few seconds when that option appears on your screen (at the top left of the screen) after a Boot/re Boot with the Vista disk in the USB DVD drive.
I hope this helps, and Good Luck.
