: Has anyone out there succesfully connected their qs7/8 to a laptop via a serial port? I am unable to do, and moreover, have serious system problems after trying to install the serial driver (modem, touchpad and software crashes...and total system freezes...not even ctrl + alt + del works). I have seen various postings about serial driver problems, but has anyone had the problems listed above...and resolved them? Any explanations for why this is happening? Any advice for fixing this? Much thanks for any help.
Are you using the latest Alesis Serial driver - v3.04 or v2.00? I had intermittent problems when using v2.00 in Win98 on a desktop PC, and I think this driver was intended for Win 3.1 or earlier. Who uses Win3.1 anymore? It was about time they updated the serial driver, so ensure you are using the latest - v3.04.
