XP and Serial Port inquiry

07-10-2005, 12:53 AM

I have XP Pro and a UPS power unit connected to a serial port.

It has been fine even if I moved the computer and the UPS to another
location. Boot up and the Checkups 11 software for the unit would find
the port and it would start monitoring.

This time it is different!

I moved them to another room and now Checkups 11 shows a panel every now
and then that it cannot communicate. The software company tell me it is
the serial port it cannot find.

The CPU is running at 100% as the program continues to retry the port.

How can I check that the serial port is fine or any other way to have it
open to communicate.
