Q:
I'm having a problem setting up the camera on my Gateway computer. What should I do?
A:
Your PC serial port is possibly not setup properly causing it to not recognize the camera. Gateway has information concerning their special COM A port on some model computers and how to set it up properly for external devices.

Basically, you need to hit F1 at boot to enter the BIOS setup utility. Go to Advanced / Peripheral Configuration / Serial Port 2 then hit Enter. Then Disable.

Go to Serial Port 1 Address and hit Enter. Change it to Com 2 (2F8h). Save the settings and exit. After Windows 95 boots, go to Control Panel / System / Device Manager / Ports and delete the serial port 2 with the (!) -- exclamation mark.

Go back to Ports and select Properties for Com 2 / Port Settings and change the speed to 38400. Now go into Easy Photo...select Com2, and set the speed to 38400.

Test the camera by downloading the snapshots.
