(Code 19).How can i reinstall this Port

Right-click on it in Device Manager, delete it. Then do a scan for new hardware, it should pick it up again, may ask you for the Windows CD to copy files from. Try re-installing the Chipset drivers for the system, that may re-install the port.

Hi Hang-the-9.

Did what you told me to do.Deleted it and did a new hardware scan and there it was.
System picked it up and now it is back and working.

Thank you for the help.
