my (comport) is not working. COM1.

Specs: Windows XP
I use windows XP. I use the nine pin serial port to control audio by foot pedal. Recently, I changed my RAM to 1.5 GB. After that, serial port is not working. When i tried to configure my new foot pedal in Express Scribe, it shows, foot pedals are all in "pressed" status. Whether it is the problem with the foot pedal or serial port or any change in the setting? Please help.

If it was just adding the ram that did it I would assume the additional ram is using resources that previously were used by the com port and/or the foot pedal.

Do any problems show in device manager?

You may be able to change the com port settings. In cmos/bios setup if you have an option for 'PnP OS', enable that. That allows windows to configure some of the hardware that's normally done by the bios. The com port will probably have some preset configurations and maybe something like 'auto'. Set to auto if possible.

Uninstalling and then reinstalling the foot pedal software may be necessary after the changes. Or you may be able to configure it from within the software.

I all else fails I guess you can remove the ram you installed .

Also possible the comport is connected to a header on the motherboard and you disturbed the wiring while installing the RAM.
