I bought a Terratec USB receiver figuring to give SDR rigs a try.
I'm using a Panasonic laptop running Windows XP Office. I repeatedly tried downloading and installing SDR# and Zadig. I kept getting the "display" but no tuning or audio.
All of this so messed-up by laptop that I can't use a hard-wired USB mouse or run the PCR-100; the serial port is screwed-up and the mouse drivers are missing.
Also the computer won't complete the "boot" process. It hangs up and freezes after the monitor icons appear on the task bar.
I have to run the computer in the "safe mode with networking" to get online. I've checked everything on "Device Manager". No problems show and supposedly everything is operating right. Reinstalling the drivers for the mouse and the comm ports doesn't help.
Has this happened to anybody else out there?
Does anybody have any suggestions how to get my laptop back into normal operation? (Hi! Hi!)
Thanks & 73!
PS: After this, I'm sticking to my "boat anchors".
