Serial/Parallel Port Configuration Submenu of the Advanced Menu
The Serial/Parallel Port Configuration submenu lets you 
set the I/O addresses and interrupt levels for the serial, 
infrared and parallel ports of your notebook. 
Figure 6.  Serial/Parallel Port Configuration Submenu
I/O addresses, DMA channels and 
Interrupt levels can be entered in various 
ways, including via the BIOS setup utility, 
the control software for the I/O device, or 
the hardware. If any two ports or devices, 
serial or parallel, have the same address 
assigned, your notebook will not function 
normally. Keep a record of original settings 
before making any changes if restoration is 
required. See your hardware and software 
documentation as well as the setup utility 
to determine settings and limitations.
To prevent IRQ and address conflicts, 
avoid changing the default settings. If 
you must change the settings, you can 
call 1-800-8Fujitsu for technical assis-
tance.
If your notebook emits a series of beeps 
that sounds like a code and the display is 
blank, refer to the Troubleshooting Sec-
tion in the system User’s Guide. The 
Troubleshooting Section includes a list of 
error messages and their meanings.
All I/O addresses in Table 6 are in hexa-
decimal.
