Communications port drivers

By thejet ·
My computer shows this window: Com port 1 is not allowing computer to go into standby. Try rebooting computer or install newest driver.

Where do I find the latest driver and how do I install it?

Thanks for your help.

First, I would run windows update. I had this happen and it mysteriously started working again. The only changes that had been made were an update from the windows update site. Sounds like you've got a resident program or service (mouse driver or PDA maybe?) listening to COM1. If you're not actually using the port just disable it in the device manager. Don't uninstall it because windows will just redetect it.
