Manually configure the device
The device requires manual configuration. See the hardware documentation or contact the hardware vendor for instructions on manually configuring the device. After you configure the device itself, you can use the
Resources tab in Device Manager to configure the resource settings in Windows.
I can't really help you there at this point because I dont even know the manufacturer, make, model, and serial number of your cmputer to even search for the documentation myself. I suggest you contact the manufaturer's technical support group and get their
assistance finding the right drivers and setting the correct manual cofiguration if required (but you might want to try the remaining options here before you pick up the phone). What do you have attached to Com3 and what type of connection is com3?
Was this working recently and then just stopped? Do you know when this problem began? Try a System Restore to a point in time
BEFORE the problem began. Here's the procedure: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/using-windows-vista-system-restore/.
Be sure to check the box to show more than 5 days of restore points. If the first attempt fails, then try an earlier point or two. NOTE: You will have to re-install any software and updates you installed between now and the restore point, but you can use
Windows Update for the updates.Use the recovery disk if the system prompt doesn’t work. The recovery disk works a bit different from the above procedures but if you follow the prompts from the System Restore menu option with the above information
you should be able to restore with no problems.
I hope this helps. Please post back in any case.
