    Just to have some closure on this thread, the problem has been solved. Not the way I would have preferred, but in retrospect, I'm very happy how it turned out. A couple of days ago, Globstat placed...

    While this hasn't helped yet, I found the following to be very interesting and may be useful in the future. (Seems to work for Win 7 too)

    I've used the driver install file for Win 7, but I've installed and uninstalled it several times without any change. I do the install and it always comes back as an "unrecognized device" under USB...

    Tried both. I think they're the same anyway, but I wasn't about to leave any stone unturned. I'm real close to trying the serial version. That way it may just eliminate all this nonsense.
  5. I found the drivers that were listed on the...

    I found the drivers that were listed on the Prolific site as the same ones I had been using. I uninstalled all the drivers, deleted all of my com ports, deleted all of my USB ports, rebooted, let...

    To be clear, when this worked (on XP) it worked well and I liked it. It's popular, and well built, but I'm having problems getting it to work with Windows 7. I'm sure there are enough people out...

    Thanks, I'll be checking the logs tomorrow as well. Didn't know there were any. :wacko:

    Funny, I was just reading some of your posts on the CF forum when I was notified about your reply here. As to the driver issue, I thought that could be the problem as well, but I've uninstalled it,...

    As I mentioned in response to Curiosity, I've had it working before on XP, so I really think it's a driver Win 7 compatibility issue. Those USB to serial drivers seem to be very fussy. Win 7 is a...

    I had not thought of that one, but I'll start checking voltage tomorrow. I may also check the voltage on a few laptops to see how they compare. I haven't plugged in anything other than the touch...

    I had the previous Intel MB and upgraded to almost the same board but w/ a few more USB ports
    and I was fine w/ XP. I upgraded to Win 7 and it's running like a top, but I haven't been able to get...

    Been there, tried them. The last time I had this problem (over a year ago with XP) I seem to remember something about having to really purge the old drivers and settings before any others can be...

    The Prolific BS has been driving me to distraction for months. From what I've read here, I am very hopeful for a change.

    I tried GPSPlex and it would not locate my BU-353 on any port. How do you...

    New Dell mini 9

    With these getting faster and having greater SSHD storage, it's starting to look very appetizing. Has anyone else been looking at trying one of these? $450 for 1.5HZ and 16G solid state HD w/ XP...

    OK, another issue. Anyone that has this MB have trouble with it finding or retaining com port(s). When I boot, sometimes the nav isn't working so I check the settings and see com 2 as the only one...
