I have just had to completely restore my computer after a fatal lock up.
I have reinstalled Windows XP, Media Centre and relevent drivers and all appears OK.
However I have just found that I have no COM?LPT ports.
Does anyone know how to get them back please?

Check they are enabled in the bios.
Does device manager show any errors ?

In device manager try clicking Action menu and scan for new hardware.

Also see if the ports are enabled in the BIOS.
