    Infra Red Woes (Win2k)

    HELP!!
    Does anyone have some tips on what software I should test for interfering with my infra red port?
    I have a 5.5 yr old Dell laptop and I've used my IR port regularly for years to sync my Palm pc & Nokia Phone and all of a sudden after 2 weeks of not using it, it doesn't seem to be there at all.??
    I just uninstalled Symantec pcAnywhere, cos I've had grief with it before and only reinstalled it this week. ANy other tips on what might be doing this or how to test it, short of a new windoze installation???
    Sigh
    Thanks,
    David

    Is there any way to diagnose whether it's a software or hardware problem? Is there a control panel applet with diagnostics?

    That's pretty much what I was hoping someone could tell me. - I'll dig around more but I was hoping someone might have a suggestion for how to test the hardware directly??
    Thanks
