Question about Compaq Evo D310v PC Desktop

1 Answer

I have a Dell Inspiron 530 using Vista Home Premium and have just tried to reintroduce a Palm M130 which I used on my last computer with Windows XP. It worked ok then. Now I cannot find the COM1 port. In fact it doesn't seem to list a serial or parallel port. The Palm program keeps saying the COM1 port is in use by another application but there are no other applications running. Very frustrating. Any help would be welcome. Thank you. rambleruk

    Sorry for delay in replying - been away for five days.

    The printer is connected to USB port. I understand there is no COM1 port fitted to the computer.

    There is no hardware that I can see that is configured to a COM1 port.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    I've been away for a week and thought I'd replied to this but apparently not...apologies.

    The printer is a USB connection.

    There is no printer associated with the COM1 port.

    There is no COM1 port on my computer...cost saving no doubt.

    Thanks again.

Swapping hard drives from one computer do not work because of hardware differences even between same brands and models.
You can install Windows XP on his computer but you need the Windows XP installation CD and you will need to use the product installation code from your computer. It is printed on the Windows label that is attached to the bottom of your laptop.
