COM1 is not working with an ndis2.vxd er

By snubber ·
bootlog.txt indicates an irq confilict on COM1 with the ndis2.vxd not loading correctly. COM1 is used for a.) cellular modem b.) Cassiopeia docking station c.) Palm Pilot docking station. I guess the question is, "what component is associated with the ndis2.vxd that may have been altered", so I can reinstall that particuliar component.

What indications do you get in Windows? The ndis2.vxd not loading correctly problem is more than likely a symptom.
Your best indicators are going to be in Windows itself. Go to Control Panel/System/Device Manager and verify that there are no conflicts with and that the COM port is working properly. If not remove it and let it reinstall itself. If that's not the problem, assuming you using Windows 9x, go to Control Panel/Modems/Diagnostics and select more info. This should generate an error. Doany of the devices you are using work on COM1. If so, that device is hogging the COM port. An example is the Palm Pilot. When the Palm Pilot is set to use a specific COM port it will not allow it to be used by any other device. Most devices are thatway. Even if they are not currently connected their associated software will reserve control of the port. Check to see if any of the devices are working and look in it's settings to see if you can turn it off. If these suggestion don't fix the problem, see if you can ga

You probably either use a Novell Netware network or an NT network with Netware connectivity since NDIS is employed by netware.

The symptoms imply that a network card is conflicting with your com port. Most network cards are Plug and Play thesedays, so you can go into SYSTEM PROPERTIES (control panel - system) and modify the resources for the network card so that it is not using com1 or 3. Alternatively, you can change com1 to a com2/4 port by going into the bios and changing comA to IRQ 3.

Hope this helps.

This is refering to the Network Driver Interface Specification,that specifies the networking components on your system,the VxD,Virtual x Device the is conflicting with another device at the com ports,go to control panel and click on the system icon,then click on device manager and you will see a yellow exclamation as to what devices that are in conflict.You can check resources to see what IRQ are not being used and manually set it up to clear conflict.
