I am new to the whole LCD's. In fact I purchased the Crystal Fontz 636 serial three weeks ago while I was in the process of moding my case. I finished the case two days ago and tried to instal the lcd. I am not sure what I am doing wrong but I can not seem to get it to work. I am running the lcd on xp professional and have only installed lcddriver software and motherboard monitor 5.0 No other lcd software is installed. When I try to access the lcd driver software I get a prompt saying that the lcd is in use by another aplication or locked. I am not exactly certain what that means but I checked my jumpers on the lcd and all of them are open. When I checked my device manager I have not noticed any other new devices under the com settings. Should it be showing up. When I do a search the lcd will light for a second and then go off. I guess I am just curious if I have not installed the software correctly or if i am just missing a needed aplication. One other thing. I have noticed that my modem does not respond when I plug in the lcd. Even if I change it to another com setting. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you and I hope everyone had a good Easter.
