  1. Locate Fast IR under Onboard Devices.


NOTE: Ensure that the COM port that you select is different from the COM port assigned to the serial connector.
  1. Press <Enter>.

  2. Use the arrow keys to select the infrared COM port setting.

After you enable the infrared sensor, you can use it to establish a link to an infrared device. To set up and use an infrared device, see the infrared device documentation and the Windows XP Help and Support Center

How do I activate my infrared port ?


Most often, this can be done in the BIOS. Restart the computer and press the key as shown on the enter to enter Setup. This can be F2, DEL or some other key. Once in the BIOS, browse to the categories, mostly under wireless or integrated devices, and look for an entry for Infrared (IR). From there, enable it, save your changes and exit the BIOS.

Infrared or bluetooth on latitude d600 not working


first of all, did the first solution provider acutally believe that a good dell latitude d600 would be made by such a horrible company as compaq? thats insulting. Secondly, Dell doesn't seem to provide drivers, and i have yet to remember wher i got them in the past. In the mean time, next time you reboot the computer, press F2 to enter the BIOS setup. Press F2 untill you see a page mentioning something about either Infrared, IR, or IrDA. Make sure it is set to enabled. If you are lucky, windows will see it and attempt to download the drivers. Being i am running the Windows 7 Beta, i have yet to convince windows to do that. Good Luck

Laptop s infrared device, serial cable using IrDA Protocol problem


Sound has nothing to do with infrared devices.
The yellow exclamation mark that you see under the device manager is due to drivers of the infrared device not found or is not installed properly.
There might also be a possibility that the device is not getting recognized by the computer due to corrupted drivers so the drivers of the particular needs to be installed again with the CD.

Infrared does not work


You should probably try downloading the drivers and what not. Try finding them on the manufacturers website under the support/downloads and looking up your model of computer.

Infrared


Usually its been noticed that if ur trying to move data between cellphones of different brands it does not take place , seems to be some unspecified problem, but at the same time if you have a laptop computer the infrared connects just fine and data transfer is smooth. Also it is important to note that while xferribg data between cell phones or any infrared device it is mandatory that the infrared points are in constantantly touching each other or data xfer will not take place.it is not tlike the bluetooth.
