Disappearing Com3 port RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running an XP Professional DELL Precision 380 and am having problems installing an ICOM short wave receiver. This is connected by a USB port and some times the system recognizes it, other times the "add new Hardware" Wizard doesn't work or clicks in some 30 minutes after boot-up. To add to this the COM3 port which is loaded with Silicon lab drivers just disappears. There is no clear pattern to any of these problems. Grateful for any suggestions.

    In frustration,
