Printer serial port still works on GS. What can I do for the PC though? Internal loopback on PC's COM2 is ok, I guess it's a problem outside serial controller. I'll check the voltage regulator on the PC's serial port see if it's blown.
: Ok, sounds like a typical serial port blow out due to power still through the cable from the pc. I'd like to say its an easy fix, but I'd be fibbing. I'm not sure if you can use a super serial card on a gs or not, but that would give you your serial port on the gs. It's either 5 or 12 volts (can't recall offhand) that runs thru the serial port and when you disconnected the cable the outside of the casing is the ground and came loose leaving the voltage to stray off into the machine and ground out causing the ports to go. Dim news sorry about that.
: : Small correction, only GS was off. And blowout happened when I pulled the plug of turned-off GS.
