instructions are given. Please refer your computer’s reference manual whenever in doubt.
1. Turn off the power to your computer and any other connected peripherals.
2. Remove the mounting screws located at the rear and/or sides panels of your Computer
and gently slide the cover off.

computer. Make sure it is the right expansion slot for the card (see card description)
4. Align the card with the expansion slot, and then gently but firmly, insert the card.
Make sure the card is seated and oriented correctly. Never insert the card by force!

DRIVER INSTALLATION :
Windows 9x/ME/2000/XP/Vista/7:
After starting Windows it recognizes a new “PCI Controller“ and open the hardware
assistant. Please choose manual installation and put the driver CD into your CD-Rom
drive. Now enter the Path "D:\IO\NETMOS\98XX" and then the directory of your operating
system “WIN95“ “WIN98“ “WIN98“ “WINME“ “WIN2000“ “WINXP“
“WINXP_64“ “Vista32“ “Vista64“ “Win7_32“ or “Win7_64“ into the box for the Path/
Source and click at >next/continue<. Now Windows will search for the drivers in the
specified directory. Follow the hardware assistant and finish the installation. If Windows
recognizes other new devices repeat the above described steps. Attention! Restart
Windows after installing.
CHECK THE INSTALLED DRIVER:
Click at Start<>Run< then enter “compmgmt.msc“ and click at >OK<. In the windows
that open select >Device Manager<. Under ”Ports (COM and LPT)“ you should find
one or more new ”PCI Ports“ as sample (LPT2). If you see this or similar entries the
card is installed correctly.
CHANGE PORT NUMBER:
If you like to change the port number for example LPT3 to LPT 1, open the >Device Manager<
click at >LPT3<, >Settings< and then >Advance<. There you can change between
LPT1 to 2.
INSTALL A PERIPHERAL DEVICE:
Now you can install a Centronics parallel device to the card.
Attention!! If you want to connect old devices, it is possible that they wont work with
PCI or PCI-Express cards. In this case please connect the older device to the motherboard
and the newer device to the card. If it is necessary to connect a old device to the
card please make sure that you use the latest driver and firmware for the device. If you
experience problems with installing such devices or you are not sure that they will work.
Please contact the manufacturer of the device for further information!
Windows Server 200x:
After starting Windows it recognizes a new “PCI Controller“ and open the hardware
assistant. Please choose manual installation and put the driver CD into your CD-Rom
drive. Now enter the Path "D:\IO\NETMOS\98XX" and then the directory of your operating
system for Server 2000: “WIN2000” for Server 2003: “WINXP“ or “WINXP_64“
and for Server 2008: “Vista32“ or ”Vista64” into the box for the Path/Source and click
at >next/continue<. Now Windows search for the drivers in the specified directory.
Follow the hardware assistant and finish the installation. If Windows recognizes other
new devices repeat the above described steps. Attention! Restart Windows in any
case after installing the drivers.
Windows NT 4.0:
Start Windows NT and insert the driver CD into your CD-ROM drive (for example D:).
Click at >Start< >Run< and enter “D:\IO\NETMOS\98XX\WinNTMultiioDrivers.exe"
then click >OK<. Windows NT will now start the setup program and install the driver.
Please Restart Windows NT after installing the drivers.
CHECK THE INSTALLED DRIVER:
Click to >Start< >Programs< >Administrative Tools[Common]< >Windows NTDiagnostics<
after you click to >Resource< >IRQ<. By this windows you can see >10
NmSer 0 PCI <. For the parallel port don’t have IRQ information. You click to >I/OPort<.
Here you see two setting „E400-E406 NmSer 0 PCI “ and „D800-D806 NmSer 0
PCI“ for the serial ports and „DC00-DC06 NmPar 0 PCI“ for the parallel port. The I/O
addresses can be change, that depends which system configuration you have. If you see
this information, the card is installed correctly.
LINUX:
There are no drivers available for Linux, but the card is supported by the most versions
of Linux. Because each individual distribution and kernel version of Linux is different,
sadly we cant provide a installation instruction. Please refer to the installation manual
for standard IO ports from your Linux version! In some newer versions the card will
even be installed automatically after starting Linux.
MS-DOS:
Copy the DOS driver file from the CD (D:\IO\NETMOS\98XX\DOS\NmDosln.exe) to the
root directory on your hard disk (C:\). Modify the “AUTOEXEC.BAT“ with the following line:
C:\NmDosln -a -r
After you reboot DOS , you can see the card with LPT2 and LPT3. The IRQ its set from
System-BIOS and can’t be changed.

This document will present the steps needed to Install / Un-install the drivers of MosChip
PCI to Serial / Printer port products or another manufacturer’s product based on MosChip
MCS98XX series.
In this document, the MCS9835 is taken as an example to explain the installation process.
MCS9835 offers two serial ports and one printer port.
Driver Installation:
Download the appropriate drivers from the link :
The drivers can be downloaded
from the category “PCI Connectivity” in the download section of our website.
Allow the “.zip” file to be downloaded to your local computer. Unzip the Driver files to a
directory on your PC Hard Disk, or to a Floppy Diskette.

to the kernel.
Installing Drivers for the first time:
Switch OFF the PC.
Insert the peripheral card into the computer.
Ensure that there are no external devices connected to the Ports at this time. They can
interfere with the installation of the Drivers.
Turn ON the computer.
Windows should detect the new card, and automatically invoke the “Found New
Hardware” wizard.

“Install this driver software anyway” to proceed with driver installation.
Following pop-up screen applies to un-signed drivers only. Hence u will not see
this with Microsoft certified drivers (Signed drivers).

Preparing Vista 64-bit Operating System for installing un-signed drivers:
Steps given below are relevant for using Un-signed drivers on Vista operating system.
MCS98XX drivers are certified by Microsoft (Signed drivers) hence steps below do not
apply when Signed drivers are used.
• Using the F8 option: Press F8 key on your keyboard while booting your PC. You
will get into “Advanced Boot Options”. Select “Disable Driver Signature
Enforcement”.
• An F8 Advanced Boot Option introduced with Windows Vista—“Disable Driver
Signature Enforcement”—is available to disable the kernel-signing enforcement
only for the current boot session. This setting does not persist across boot sessions.
Note: Make sure to use F8 option every time you boot/reboot your PC before start
working with MCS98XX
• Make sure that the User installing the driver must be a member of the
Administrator group on the system.
You will get a “User Account Control” window saying “An unidentified program
