How can I dissable Infra Red/IrDa on pc

  Giggle n' Bits 20:38 30 Nov 2005

aquired a old 5 year pc with win 98SE, its a Packard bell, with a MSI 6119 V2 BX2 motherboard and I have disconected the Infrared cable from the front inner of case from the header on motherboard, but the Infrared is still active.

I have looked in the BIOS but cannot find what to disable to turn of the infra red which I take is called IRDA in bios.

Anyone help me tell me how to disable the infra red/irda please.

BIOS Settings
look under advanced features or integral periferals depending on the BIOS used in your system.

in bios under IRDA to disable this, i also downloaded the Pdf manual which didn't mention and there are no jumpers on the board to short.

Thanks Fruit Bat /\0/\ for your call.

IRDA settings in BIOS are usually set under COMM port settings and usually found under integrated peripherals, if you look at what the COMM port (Serial ports) are currently set at one will probably have the UART mode set to IrDA, ASKIR or SCR etc, change it back to Normal and that should be Infra Red disabled.

Further to above, you may also have to look under Super IO device, or similar, when you enter Integrated Peripherals.
