I am on windows 7 and have been having problems with my ports starting about a month ago. My ports are grayed out and when I go to device manager I can not see any ports. I tried downloading the driver software using hdwwiz.exe and downloaded the basic communication port to use. When it was done downloading I have an exclamation mark next tot he port in the device manager and get both of these messages when I go to properties "Windows cannot determine the settings for this device. Consult the documentation that came with this device and use the Resource tab to set the configuration. (Code 34)"
and this under resources in the properties
"Input/Output Range 03F8 - 03FF used by: PCI bus Interrupt Request 0x00000004 (04) used by: ACPI x64-based PC".
I have no idea what is going on and if anyone can help I would appreciate it. I am uisng an arduinio fio and 2 xbees.
