Infrared device on Toshiba M35X-S329

by Ashkan_G / September 10, 2005 3:06 PM PDT

I recently bought a Toshiba M35X-S329 which is equipped with an infrared device. However when I try to make a connection between my Dell Axim X30, nothing happens.

I would appreciate any kind of help.

System info:

Centrino 1.6 GHz
512 MB RAM
Windows XP Home

iR help...
by server / September 12, 2005 2:49 PM PDT

first check to make sure your dell
has the iR beam turned ''ON''. Some
are OFF to conserve battery. The setting
is somewhere in the power sections. Then
open your Toshiba Control Panel and
ensure iR is listed and functioning.

Then put your two devices together
and see if they 'shake hands'
If not, then you may have to initiate
this by launching the iRmon.exe app
Look for it buried somewhere on the
c:\win dir. Once you lauch it, it
may help with detecting your dell.

When I click on the Wireless icon in Control Panel and click on the Harware tab is says that "...Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems (Code 43)"

Is this a REALLY bad thing?

Thanks

"43 Windows has stopped this device because it has
reported problems. (Code 43) One of the drivers
controlling the device notified the operating system
that the device failed in some manner. For more
information about how to diagnose the problem, see
the hardware documentation.On the General Properties
tab of the device, click Troubleshoot to start the
troubleshooting wizard"

Someone you could try... disable the device,
reboot and then re-enable.

No Solution :-(

I tried every step of the troubleshooter and it doesn't work. It gives me the same message again.
Do you think I have to call Toshiba since there might be some problem with the hardware itself?

Safe mode?

its very rare that this type of hardware
has 'failed'. I'm thinking its more a
erroneous windows error than a hardware
failure. Then again, anything is possible.
Yeah, give them a call and see if the techi
has anything in their KB. One of the best
ways to test or diagnose hardware is to have
two partitions with two OS. That way if both
show the same then you can pretty much confirm
whats at fault.

What happens when you boot safe mode?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
