Serial driver dead?


Recommended Posts

Just made myself a pretty darn zippy version of nlite.

Everything works amazing so far, minus a few exceptions, like Advanced WindowsCare 2 Professional...takes like 5-10 minutes to start (i'd love to guess its the IE removal). Also, I don't remember seeing that netbios over tcp was a required system driver for network printer support, so my networked printer didn't work for a few days. Neither are my main concern at the moment.

I like to see my Device Manager with no errors in it, but apparently the Serial driver under "non-plug and play drivers" isn't working at all.

Any ideas on what I shouldn't be removing from XP to keep it working? I like my serial ports :thumbup

I see this often on computers with serial port not present or otherwise disabled. Just set this to cure the question mark in device manager:

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Serial]
"Start"=dword:3
