    i added a pic of the problem when it arrises.. hope it helps up..


    im trying to run my external lcd screen on my com4 port. altho i get the same dang error whenever it tries to start up.


    there's the link to the pic, any other info needed just ask.

    i really need the helped with fast, im running a keyboard and mouse on port 1 and 2 and an external hdd on port 3 for school so i can take it from home and hook it up.. so port4 is the only one open and i could really use the lcd for safety of my system while running some very intensive programs.

    usb: ps/2?????

    yes i installed it exactly the way it tells me, and no im not using a ps"2 usb adapter because both my keyboard (Saitek Gaming Board) and mouse (Razor Diamndback) are both usb not ps2. and im uninstalling via the add/remove programs.

    and why the hell is my computer only showing com1 and com2 not com3 and com4

    your original pic had only 1, 2 & 4

    what shows up under universal bus controllers?

    I mentioned the usb/ ps/2 adapter in order to test the usb device via a ps/2 port.

    you may need to reinstall to uninstall (with device removed)

    you could also run back to a restore point if you have one.

    eh problem cant be fixed, mainly because the damn screen wont power on anymore, either the usb somehow got a power surge and fried it or somethin else happened.

    Do you mean the main monitor or the external lcd?

    If it's an USB problem you can either get a PCI USB card or adapters to run your USB devices off the PS/2 ports:

    USB to PS/2 adapter

    the external lcd wont power on when plugged into the usb, and i know its not the usb ports because the usb powers on anything else plugged into it, like my mouse, keyboards, external hdd..

    Have you tried the external lcd on another computer?
