Lon comms card will not work on HP 6560D Probook Laptop running on Windows XP

Issue

The Lon comms card that can be installed in the pciExpress slot on HP Laptops can sometimes generate a "Buffers Full" error. The identical fault details can be found in another Knowledge Base article relating to Dell E6400 laptops.

Product Line

Satchwell MicroNet, Satchwell Sigma, TAC Vista

Environment

  • Sigma using IC-3 Lon with Lonmaker for Windows
  • Vista
  • Micronet when using Lon interface
  • Using the Lon PCC-10 Card in a laptop that has an express card slot and not a PCMCIA card slot.

Cause

There is an issue with some HP 6560D Probook laptop that is provided by the UK IS department to commissioning and service engineers. If they need to use the Echelon Lontalk PCC-10 PCMCIA card then when trying to configure it via the Control Panel applet it will fail giving an error message "Driver Buffers Full" or it will simply fail when running diagnostic tests.

Resolution

See Can a LON PCC-10 PCMCIA card work in a laptop with an express card slot? for details of the Express card configuration for laptops.
