Question about Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus Silver Edition Graphic Calculator
This should help you install the drivers so that your calculator can communicate with your computer (Windows-based). Please read the post to the end. If you have any problem, post a comment to this thread.
Install TI Connect 1.6 for Windows then try connecting the calculator to the computer using the TI SilverLink cable (if you have one). It goes into the Round IO port.
If you do not have a USB SilverLink cable, you can use the mini USB to USB Direct cable but you will have to install the correct driver for it.
I do not know what computer operating system you are running and I use Windows XP so I will describe the installation procedure for Window XP SP3.
Install TI connect 1.6 for Windows; if your system is Vista you must install a patch available on the TI website, at the same page where you find TI Connect.
After you install TI Connect, connect you calculator to the computer with the mini USB standard USB Direct cable. Windows will detect the calculator and will try to install the drivers. You will have something that is similar to what is on the three screen captures I am inserting in the post. On the last screen, choose the TI Educational Handheld device and click next.
When Windows asks to stop installation, click continue anywayi states than there is - be44bb9.jpg/>
After the installation, click finish.
Device manager will show you something like what is on next screen (TIi states than there is - 4e495b4.jpgl Handheld device)
Run TI Connect to verify that the calculator is recognized. Connect your computer to the Internet and click the Updates Button on the TI Connect tool bar.
Verify that the I/O port (the round one) does not contain any foreign material. Also, for transferring files batteries must be in excellent condition.
Suggestion: If you are able to establish communication with the calculator through TI Connect software, you should consider upgrading the OS to version 2.53 MP. It is a major upgrade for the OS of TI84Plus (not the TI83Plus).
