Communication port is not working properly


COM1 and COM2 refer to a computer's communications, or serial, ports. COM1 ports are often used on older PCs to connect network devices, digital cameras and mice. Faulty drivers software that enables the hardware to communicate with the operating system or incorrect hardware configuration can influence COM1 behavior. In rare cases, the expansion card that adds the serial ports to the PC can fail, rendering both COM1 and COM2 ports useless. To repair a COM1 port, you must determine what is preventing the port from working before attempting a solution.

Click "Start." Go to "Control Panel" and then click "Hardware & Sound." Select "Device Manager" from the submenu. Expand "Ports (COM & LPT)." Double-click "COM1." Review Device Status on the General tab to check for problems with the software driver. If the message "The Device Is Working Properly" appears, click "OK" to close the window; otherwise, look up the error message on Microsoft Support. Follow the directions in the Knowledge Base to correct the issue. Press "Alt" and "V" to open View. Scroll to "Resources by Type." Press "Enter." Double-click "Interrupt Request (IRQ)" to see a list of devices. Double-click "Communications Port (COM1)." Check the term to the left of COM1 to see if the card uses an ISA or PCI interface. If the card uses a PCI interface, it can use the same IRQ as another PCI device without producing a hardware conflict. If the device is ISA, it needs its own IRQ. Go to the "Resources" tab. If "No Conflicts" appears in the Conflicting Device List, close the window; otherwise, uncheck "Use Automatic Settings." Click the drop-down menu and select each configuration until the port no longer interferes with another device. If conflicts occur with each configuration, double-click "IRQ"; you may need to try different configurations before Windows gives you permission to edit the interrupt request. Click the up or down arrow to change the IRQ until the message "No Devices Are Conflicting" appears in the Conflict Information field. Click "OK" to close each window. Click "Yes" when prompted. Connect a device to the COM1 port to test the port. If the device doesn't respond, shut down the computer and then unplug the power cable. Disconnect all devices from the back of the PC. Remove the case cover and touch the computer's chassis. Set the computer on its side so that the PCI and ISA cards sit at a 90-degree angle to the floor. Find the serial ports on the back of the PC. Look on the opposite side of the case to find the associated card. Shine a flashlight onto the card and make sure that the copper contacts are not visible. If you can see the contacts, reseat the card in its slot so that it's fully installed to the motherboard. Reassemble the case and boot into Windows to test the COM1 port. If the port still fails to work, you may need to replace the serial port card.

IC VERIFY CREDIR CARD SOFTWARE WONT DIAL OUT AFTER SWAPING HD TO A NE PC. EXTERNAL MODEM WORKS FINE, SETTINGS ON ICVERIFY POINTS TO MODEM COM PORT. SOFTWARE WILL NOT DIAL OUT. aNY HELP?


Ok,

There's really only a few reasons this would fail beyond the COM settings. First, if the computer you're using has actual serial ports on the board and you're using a USB modem or if there are more than one serial ports it's possible you have either got the wrong COM assigned or that you have more than one trying to use COM 1. This will not cause conflicts with newer USB based devices but can when using actual UART chips on the motherboard or a mix of USB and UARTs.

Go into device manager and check for additional ports. Disable all COM ports except the actual modem and try again. If it still fails, check for DMA and IRQ conflicts. Do this by going into Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Information.

Once open navigate to System Summary>Hardware Resources>Conflicts and Sharing.

Check for any conflicts with COM 1 and it's related DMA settings or anything sharing an IRQ with the modem. If you find any devices conflicting or sharing IRQ or DMA with the modem either disable the device or go into device manager, double click the offending device, click onto the resources page and find an alternate configuration that uses different IRQ/DMA that won't conflict. This will require a reboot for most devices.

Sorry my answer would be faster but I'm shaking almost a decade worth of dust and cobwebs out of my brain that have built up since the last time I even used a modem for ICVerify.

Hope this helps, lemme know how you make out,

chris

I have Toshiba 14" Satellite L645 i5450 notebook


the Satellite L645 line has optional built in analog modem

this line does not seem to have a serial port nor pc card slot
therefore can not support a analog model unless you can find a manufacturer of a usb model

but if your want to connect to a dsl or cable modem that is done thru your rj45 port with a ethernet cable

Google "XP System Restore"
It can help you restore the computer to a previous state.
Hopefully you will have a restore point before the error started.
If you start having more "missing" devices or files your hard drive might be failing.

I hope this hellps.

Toshiba laptops a30 error 633 the modem or other connecting device is already in use or is not configured properly how do i solve this?


Since you don't list your operating system, its hard to take you through all the arcane steps that don't always solve this problem that has caused many people alot of grief. So, here's something you can try if your laptop is no longer under warranty. These were badly made modems that get loose in their plugin spot on the motherboard. You can remove the cover on the bottom of the laptop where the modem is located and fold a small peice of paper ubntil it's the right thickness so that when you set it on top of the modem and screw the cover back down, the cover pushes down on the paper and thus the moden causing a tight plug in fit.

If you don't understand what I'm asking you to do, don't try it yourself but find a friend who's familiar with opening up laptops to do it with you.

It may sound nuts but it works a fair bit of the time. If it doesn't work, you'll either have to do some fairly advanced software adjustments or buy a new modem. This error code number you're getting often means the modem is bad.

Irq dma err


IRQ's (Interrupt Request) LinesIRQ's are hotlines to the main computer (CPU) that allow devices connected to the computer to signal the CPU that they need immediate attention. If you're a Batman fan, think of IRQ's as the Batphone - getting his attention immediately. 
Not all devices require IRQ lines, which is good news because in modern (post IBM XT) computers, we only have 16 of them. Of those, 3 are already dedicated to the main system board itself - the system timer, keyboard, and memory parity error signal. That leaves only 13 for all the other devices connected to your computer. This is why IRQ conflicts are probably the #1 problem faced by computer users when they add hardware to their computer.  


 

Its a general rule for ISA-type systems (the standard computer architecture used in most IBM compatible systems) that IRQ lines CANNOT by shared with multiple devices except under special circumstances. For this reason, a good understanding of what IRQ's are assigned to what devices is essential in avoiding conflicts. The table below is a general outline for standard IRQ assignments.IRQ DEVICE USED in AT, 386, 486, and Pentium Computers
0 System Timer
1 Keyboard Controller
2 Tied to IRQs 8-15
3 COM 2
4 COM 1
5 LPT2 or Sound Card
6 Floppy Diskette Controller
7 LPT 1
8 Real Time Clock
9 Substitutes for IRQ 2
10 Not Assigned
11 Not Assigned
12 PS/2 Mouse Port
13 NPU (Numerical Processing Unit)
14 Primary Hard Disk Controller
15 Secondary Hard Disk Controller


Depending on the computer's configuration, add-in devices such as SCSI controllers, sound cards, modems, cd-roms, etc. will want an IRQ line that is already used by another device, and thus we have what is commonly referred to as an IRQ Conflict. 

The most common IRQ conflicts seem to be between two COM ports, generally a mouse and modem conflict that ends up freezing the mouse whenever the modem is activated. The table below explains each IRQ and the most common devices each may use.

I thought I had Bluetooth in my computer...


Yes, you can use bluetooth mobile devices. COM 3 os the port that the bluetooth uses to connect to a device. You can think of it like a wireless modem. You can also configure other COM ports for communication with bluetooth devices using the connection wizard. I would suggest not to do this unless you know what you doing. From my experiences with bluetooth devices they can b a little touchy, and you have to careful you don't want to pick a port that another program is already using. ConfigFree is capable of configuring this bluetooth connection, but there are also other programs out there that you can use as well.
