I'm having a strange problem with the serial connection from my PC to my QS8.

The QS8 is not responding to my PC. When I run the test i/o function for the Alesis serial driver, set at the slowest speed, it cannot detect the QS8. Upon rebooting my PC, the QS8 started acting like it was being flooded with a bunch of sustained notes. This flurry of notes went away whever I would disconnect the serial cable from the back of the QS8. If I would reconnect it the noise would start back again.

I checked the serial connection on the PC, disconnected & reconnected the cable. Upon reboot, not only could the serial connection not detect the QS8, but the Cubase dongle was also not detected.

Could this be some kind of PC problem?

I'm running a PIII 1 Ghz, 256 MB, 32 MB video card. My system is relatively new and my motherboard has the Intel 815e chipset if it matters......
