Question about Javelin Systems Inc (81160083W98) PC Desktop
I have an embroidery machine that I want to connect to an older Dell omnilex i70 (I think that's the series). It has 2 serial ports in the rear. One is designated for the monitor and the other is not. The connection for the embroidery/sewing machine is with a double serial port cable that came with the Singer. One end is connected directly to the computer (the spare port in the back) and the other end connects to a convertor box. The embroidery/sewing machine connects directly from the serial port to a USB in the rear of the machine.
My problem is that when I connect the serial cable into the open port in the rear of the machine, it gives me a yellow exclamation mark when I view the Device Manager. When I try to fix it, it wants the driver.
I went on the Dell site to see if I could find the PCI communications driver for this port, but the machine is beyond the warranty period and it won't help me.
This machine is using XP OS and everything else is working properly-including the USB/Serial cable from the embroidery machine to the computer.
Oh, this machine is NOT connected to the internet and never will be so I need to download the driver to a flash drive then to the computer.
Can you tell me where I can find the driver for this? And when I do, and download to the flash drive, where do I put it in the system files so that the Device Manager can find it to reinstall?
Thank you in advance for any assistance.
The PCI communications is for your Dial-up modem. It is probably set to use the only serial port that you mention. The other port is your VGA port.
You can remove or disable the modem to free up your serial port. Since you do not use the modem to dial up to the Internet, You can physically remove it from the PC. Restart your PC and the port will be freed up for your sewing appliance.
When you remove the modem make sure that the power is off.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

Go to the Dell support website http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/
Put in your service tag # (it is usually located on a little barcode sticker on the back of your machine). It does not matter if your machine is out of warranty or not. This is one of the reasons I like DELL. DELL has drivers for their machines that go back 10 years or more. I have never had a problem getting them from the website. When you see the downloads that you need download the ones that say driver. You may have to download the chipset driver also. When you do download the drivers and it asks you for the filename to save it as I find that it helps to add a name to the dell #'s to describe the driver so that it looks something like R264710video. Once you download them and transfer them to your computer they should install themself in the correct location (you just have to double-click on the .exe file and answer the prompts (if any)). Let us know if this helps.
