No network, no serial
Posted on 1998-08-03
Hi all NT gurus!
We have a HP Kayak workstation. This computer is a part of a microscope system. Therefore it is connected to another computer via a serial cable. It is also connected to our LAN because we would like to connect to printers, etc.
The computer is running NT 4.0 (SP3). The service pack, however, has probably not been reinstalled after some of the latest programs were installed. I am not sure though, since an external technician did it.
Anyway, I saw an answer to some of my questions here. I get the same error namely "The computer browser failed to start........not enough server storage." I checked the suggested key in the registry. It looked as as the default information. I still can not start the computer browser. Should it help to reinstall SP3?
Does anyone know if this error also effect the serial ports? I do not get any response from those. Niether does my network card work.
The following services are running: EventLog, Messenger, Plug'n Play, RPC service, simple TCP/IP, spooler, TCP/IP NetBios Helper and workstation.
