I upgraded my computer. Started using an external modem for communication instead of using the Tecmar internal modem (d9350/9351) and am getting an “invalid or missing hardware key communication unavailable" error.

How do I reset the command center sounder and memory display?
Reset Command Center Sounders*Reset Alarm Memory Display
COMMAND 4 performs two functions for your security system. Use this command to silence your Command Center sounder during service alert, and to reset the Command Center alarm memory.
To use COMMAND 4:
1. Ensure that your security system is disarmed. 2. Press the COMMAND bar. The Command Mode indicator light comes on. 3. Press the 4 key. The Command Center sounder is silenced and any flashing Zone Status indicator lights are turned off if the zone is normal.
How can the command center be cleared after an alarm condition on the 7000/9000 series panels?
How can a REX sensor such as the DS150i or DS160 be used to shunt an armed point?
The REX sensor can be used to shunt a normally closed contact by connecting the REX relay contacts that will provide closure when motion is detected in parallel with the door point to be shunted. When these contacts close, a short will be placed across the door point. The panel will see the door as closed for the duration of the REX relay time.
Note: The REX relay Common to Normally Open and Common to Normally Closed contacts will reverse when changing from Fail Safe to Fail Secure mode. See NOTES for further clarification.
In Fail Safe mode, use the Yellow and Violet wires on the first relay or the Gray and Green wires on the second relay.
In Fail Secure mode, use the Yellow and Blue wires on the first relay or the Gray and Orange wires on the e second relay.
In Fail Safe mode, use the relay contacts designated Normally Open to Common.
In Fail Secure mode, use the relay contacts designated Normally Closed to Common.
How do I Force Arm the System?
Force Arming the System
Under normal conditions your Command Center cannot be master armed while there is a faulted zone. Force arming allows you to arm the system with any zone faulted other than priority zones. (Priority zones are zones that must be normal when the system is armed.) Force arming arms only those zones that are ready to arm; any zone faulted at arming time is bypassed (not armed).
When force arming, a trouble report may be sent to the Central Station indicating that the system was force armed and which zone was faulted. A closing report may also be sent by those systems that are programmed for opening and closing reports.
Force arming can be programmed to apply to most arming commands as well as your personal passcode. Your alarm technician will check the boxes below to indicate which arming commands can force arm your system.
To arm with zones faulted:
1. Enter your personal passcode and press the ENT key, or enter an arming command (COMMANDs 1, 2, or 3). The Command Center then emits a "beep" tone with each keytouch indicating that a zone is faulted. 2. Press the COMMAND bar and then the ENT key. The system now arms all zones which are normal.
NOTE: If the fault is restored (returned to normal) while arming, the zone will be armed. If the fault is restored after arming, how your system is programmed determines whether or not the zone will be armed with the rest of the system.
