USB Infrared Dongle

  seymour1983 12:25 19 Jun 2005

Hi, i have just formatted my computer which is running Windows 98 and now i cannot get my USB Infrared Dongle to install. Windows is picking up the dongle but is saying it is a serial bus controller.

Also in the infrared settings in control panel i am getting an error message 45.

When i installed it previously Windows picked it up as an infrared port and i just selected the windows infared driver but it doesn't seem to want to work now?

Any help much appreciated.

go to system and see if the dongle is listed and has a yellow mark by it. If so click on update driver. If not find the equipment with the error message and delete/uninstall it. Reboot pc with dongle disconnected and check that no reference to it exists. Then reboot and when running normally insert dongle and it should be found and installed. If none of this is possible look in system and see if the usb root hub has any yellow marks - you may have to run the mobo installation cd to install the drivers.
