Presario 1200 – No Comm Ports!Locked
Hi, have done a clean instal of win98 on a Compac Presario 1200 XL. Installed sound, video, network drivers etc and that all works but I cannot resolve the following which may or may not be related:
1. Two default monitors in device manager; tried deleting one but it still looks to reinstal on booting so I have disabled. (Display adapter Trident CyberBlade i1 AGP 77).
2. There is an unknown PCI communications device (yellow ? mark) listed under ‘Other Devices’. There is no modem in device manager so I installed one but thats not it.
And the last but most curious is that I have no Comm ports listed or available.
All other functions seem ok and there are no other problem devices or anything reporting conflicts in device manager…… I have been told that there was a prob with early compacs and I may need to get an i/o device driver but have had no luck on the Compaq site or elswhere getting any info so your help would be appreciated…. cheers
