Ive had direct scan in my car for 2 years never a problem.It sat for a year and now its coming up for about 20 seconds and then it stops and says hardware timed out.What could this be?I even took my friends direct scan in the car and the same thing.

Have you tried moving the ribbon cable where it connects to the ecm ? also make sure it's not pushed in all the way , those two things have happen to me, and made mine do some funky stuff :dunno:

I have the same problem, but if i use different laptop, it works fine, so i think it might be my parallel port settings in the bios...
