Windows XP problem
- Hello All,
Well I just upgraded my laptop , (IBM Thinkpad) from Windows 98 to
Windows XP and now have encountered the problem of a com port being stuck
in xmit upon computer booting up! I guess the RTS and DTR lines are
starting in high state when computer starts up. So I have tried several
things to correct this.....First I uninstalled the com ports then
rebooted the computer hoping that when the drivers were reinstalled, ect
things might work, but no luck there. Then I downloaded windows XP
updates and tried that but no luck with that either. Does anyone know of
a fix for this problem, I know there is Fixcom but that is for Windows ME
and 2000 I think and don't know what else might work.
Any help or ideas would be appreciated.
- Thanks to all that sent me suggestions about my com port problem in
Windows XP! It's so nice to have a group that is so knowledgeable and
willing to help others. The problem was fixed by updating the BIOS in my
laptop. The BIOS update from IBM was specifically to fix the com port
problem so I am glad there was a solution to the problem!
