I am owner of an original Inskor upright racecabinet. In it is the original PC with V-Rally 2 Arcade Edition. It was working fine untill one day when I turned it on, the harddrive wouldn't boot up. The fans were working correct, so the PC got it power correct.
I took out he PC bij disconnecting de VGA-cable, sound cable, power cable and COM1 port (to controles) and connected the PC to a monitor, keyboard (PS/2) and plugged in a USB-mouse and USB-speakers. After startup the mouse(driver) installed itself (the PC is windows-based, but without a GUI, so the install-bar was visible.
After that I found out what was the problem. There was a small powerswitch at the back. Never I had to push that before, but it seems something had changed during power-off. Problem solved? No! Now the PC starts up correctly but "hangs" after the bootup selftest. There's an empty Windows-window saying: "Missing security Key in COM1".
I think (but don't know) that bij installing some USB-parts, I excluded the COM1-port for the controls or something like that.
I realy don't know how to fix it, especially not because there is no GUI!
Perhaps any ideas?
Thanks a lot!
