how enable infra red on an old toshiba

by imorphusvortex / October 16, 2007 8:16 AM PDT

Toshiba Satellite Pro 460CDT running windows 2000 Pro
when I go to control panel - Wireless Link - Hardware it says Device status: This device is disabled because the firmware of the device did not give it hte required resources. (code 29) then troubleshoot says the device was disabled by a user through the bios setup... then in resources - set configuration manually the input/output range icon has a red line through it,

what does it all mean, how do I turn it on, or even is there infrared on this comp, thanks for ya time.

That usually means a driver was missing.

In reply to: also

Windows 2000 Pro is unusual to see today but the office has plenty of them. The most common issue is a missing driver. Microsoft won't get it for you. Look on or the CDs that came with the machine.

Sorry, I'm letting you search for it and provide links.
