l have a laptop with the wrong chipset so l can`t run TL and there is no pcmica slotport on that computer.

Is there any other way to fix that problem????

l will not buy a new computer.
the chipset is a Intel(R) 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset Family USB Enhanced Host Controller - 3B3C on a HP g72 laptop

Emil,

The problem you are describing is rare. Most manufacturers addressed this issue long ago. Unfortunately, there is no way to make the system work if there is a problem with the USB chipset.

Have you confirmed that your TL will work on another computer. I believe the first step is to use a process of elimination to determine absolutely if the problem is with the computer.

It works fine on a laptop with win xp on. But the hard drive on that computer is not good so l can`t use it.
My new computer is a HP G72. When l use TL on that computer it frez up and the clock on TL will not start. There is not a pcmcia slotport on my new computer.


And l`m not the only one with this problem:

I got a $300 dollar ACER 4520 and a $3000 ASUS and TL will NOT work with either of them. I also got a emachines Laptop that does work and a Desktop ACER that also does work.
I find its a hit or miss with laptops.

Make sure you set the "Regional Setting" to use the decimal "." instead of the comma "," for numbers.

Let me know if this helps.

A friend of mine has the same computer but with the "new" termlab and that works fine. l have the old termlab with a separate powersupply and that frezes up when l try to start a messurement.

Is there any differences on the software on the two termlab boxes?

I am not aware of any differences between the "USB Powered" Term-LAB interface box and the "Wall transformer powered" interface box (other than the power supply). The USB interface is identical on both units.

Do you have any suggestions on what could be wrong?

Try this...
1. Remove the two screws on the bottom of the white interface box.
2. Remove the lid.
3. Locate the processor chip (about the size of a postage stamp) on the PC Board.
4. Press down FIRMLY on this chip to make sure it is fully "seated" in the socket.
5. Test the unit again.

I am just throwing ideas out. Maybe the chip has become "loose" over the years. Or, maybe oxidation on the socket is causing an intermittent connection.
