I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Need the driver for PCI SERIAL PORT( PCI express slot) for windows 7 pro 32 bit.

The Problem:

A friend of mine has some win32 and msdos applications that use serial
port communication with an external device, and a notebook that doesn't
have a serial port (unfortunately, many notebooks these days come
without serial ports). He got himself a USB to Serial Port Cable, and he
says that the win32 apps work just fine now, but the DOS ones don't.

I think (I'm not sure) those DOS applications don't run from an ms-dos
prompt under windows , but just in plain DOS mode. I'm trying to find out a
solution to use them under ms-dos.

I just want to find out if anyone knows any DOS driver for those USB to
Serial Port Converters / a method to get those dos applications running ...


A:USB to Serial Port driver for DOS

Just because you have a USB to serial converter cable/adapter doesn't mean DOS can work with the device. The device itself uses the USB protocol, so you need a DOS driver to "talk" to it. Scour the internet, I believe I saw one out there. search for - DOS usb

Can anybody direct me to the driver for the PCI Serial Port and PCI Simple Communications Controller for an Optiplex 755. It is NOT a modem as I do not have anything installed. I am pretty sure it is the onboard serial port driver as no serial com port is showing up in device manager and nothing I load will fix it. I would have thought the chipset driver would have but it did not. I am using XP SP2.  

A:Optiplex 755 PCI Serial Port Driver ??

rievandusky,Welcome to the Dell Community Forums.You need to install the Intel AMT SOL/LMS driver in order to get the serial port out of the Other devices category.As far as the PCI Simple Communication driver, you need to install the Intel AMT HECI driver.Both are under the Chipset driver category on the Dell Resource CD.

A:Missing PCI Serial Port & other Driver in HP Z620

First two are from Intel AMT (Management Engine), and the last one is because you have a SAS controller installed. It should most probably be the 9217; but can be a 9212 as well. Do you know the configuration of your system? For the first two, if you are not using Intel AMT, you can disable the same from BIOS : Got to BIOS by pressing F10 when the system powers up, and go to "Advanced" --> "AMT Configuration" and disable the same. If you don't want to disable the same, please install this: If you don't know which SAS controller you are using, please post a pic of the card, where the label on the card is visible. If you know the SAS controller model, you can install the driver from "Driver - Storage" section of this page: Thanks,Sasi

I'm reinstalling Win98SE on a Compaq 5240 after a hard drive crash. It goes well but does not find a driver for the Serial Port. I tried Compaq, but they are no help . . will only support if we restore with thier disk (which has gone astray)and was not the SE version.

When I delete the controller from Device Manager, restart and let it rediscover the port, it wants to look at D:/DIR00002/Patches . . which must be on the Compaq version of Win98, but ain't on the retail MS version.

It looks like the driver is specific to Compaq and is used to share the serial port with a front panel game port.

Anyone have any ideas how I can get this driver?

Thanks a ton . . wrs

A:Serial Port driver - Compaq 5240

OK, I think you're talking about the game port that came with the sound card in your Compaq? Or, are you referring to a COM port? You might post this in the Win98 forum. You might get a quicker reply as it applies to Win98.

Ever since I installed Windows 7 (64-bit), the Device Manager shows under Other Devices / PCI Serial Port / Properties / "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)".

I've update the drivers for my main-board (ALiveNF6G-GLAN) with the files from here and for my graphics card (GeForce 6150SE) and chip-set (nForce 430) (v15.49) from here, but the PCI Serial Port driver is still reported as not installed.

Deleting the device (and letting Windows re-detect it) doesn't work either.

I'm really frustrated by this problem because I suspect it might be the cause the Windows doesn't enter Sleep/Hibernate mode correctly (e.g., the CPU fan keeps running).

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

PS. Please ignore the system specs below this post. Those are for my PC. This problem is on my wife's PC.

When running an SCCM 2012 R2 task sequence to install Windows 10 on a Z240, the network driver is working in Windows PE during the download and apply Windows image. I'm using Auto Apply Drivers step and after it's completed, the computer restarts into the Windows 10 OS, tries to set up the devices and then the task sequence fails because there is no network driver detected that it can use. I've tried to import multiple types of network drivers from both HP and Intel with no success. I've tried to specifically apply the Z240 driver package instead of using Auto Apply Drivers with no success. I've also tried to install a Windows 8.1 image instead and it still fails at the same point. I'm confused because it works fine in PE, but not after restarting and booting into the Windows OS.

I am trying to connect my fiancee's palm pilot via serial port to my computer running windows XP. I have tried both serial ports on the back of my computer (one has a picture of a monitor and one has a picture of what reminds me of a lego Oh, and these are 9-pin ports I believe). Anyway, I can't get the palm pilot to sync with the computer. After looking at the FAQ section on Palm's website, it sounds like the reason it isn't working is because of conflicting COM/IRQ addresses.

Can someone please tell me the best way to see if there are any COM ports available on my computer and, if there's not, how to free one up? Thanks in advance!

Anyway, press F10 repeatedly when your computer boots up to enter the BIOS. After you reach the BIOS main menu, see if you can find a menu or setting for Serial Port. It is probably under the menu, Integrated Peripherals, or a menu similar to that. There should be an "Enable/Disable" option.

So im going to try to explain this as well as i can.
I am running a windows 7 and I have a radio I would like to program. The main issue is that the program needed to program it is for DOS. So I installed DOS 6.22 On my VMWare virtual machine (VMware Workstation 8.0.0) and ran the program. Now the radio connects with a serial cable. but since I am using my laptop (lenovo ideapad z575) It does not have a Serial port. So I am using a USB to Serial Adapter (Trendnet TU-S9). But DOS will not recognize it.

What I am wanting to do overall is to make my windows 7 computer assume that my USB adapter is a physical Serial port so that I can go into VMware and attach a "physical" serial port to my VM. any Ideas or other suggestion i could try? thanks and sorry for the read.

Did the trendnet USB to serial adapter come with drivers? Usually devices like that will. If not you can find them on the website most of the times. You may have to just install the drivers on your machine, and within the VM.

A:Help with serial to USB port

Hi judysue2, and welcome to TSG.

Are you talking about the USB connector or the 9 pin D-sub serial connector?

There are 9 pin serial cables that come in all combinations of male and female connectors on each end. There are also 9 pin D-sub "gender changer" blocks available.

EDIT: The serial port on your sewing machine is most likely designed to connect to a computer running specific downloading software for the machine. A general purpose serial-to-USB adapter would not have the built-in software needed to read the memory stick and send the data to the machine.

Are you trying to loopback test on the same connector or between two different connectors? You may have a loopback adapter/tester for testing between one serial port with a 9 pin plug and one with a 25 pin plug. I found a description of such a cable in some Sun Microsystems documentation here:

It is a setting that is in your BIOS that came disabled for some reason.

When your computer reboots and you see the text, you will see the computer running diagnostics on your computer (finding hard drives, verifying memory, etc...). On that first page, you have to press F1, DEL, ESC or some other key to enter your BIOS Settings. Once you enter it, you have to go into Port Management or Integrated Peripherals to enable the SERIAL Port.

If you can determine who made your motherboard, we might be able to determine the exact procedure on how to enable this for you.

I'm trying to use a serial port on my PC, the GB board (H97-D3H) has a COM port header and I've used a back panel connector with cable to connect to this. I checked and serial port in enabled in BIOS. The driver is the Microsoft driver serial.sys and claims it is working. I believe the support for the COM header connection is through the chipset. I've downloaded and installed all the latest drivers from Gigabyte. I'm trying to connect to a device to update firmware and connection is via serial connection.

Any suggestions for troubleshooting? Would I need a specific driver that supports the chipset to run this serial port? Lots of USB-serial and virtual serial port drivers found by googling but can't find another driver for Win7 x64 to try. Any other suggestions on how to get the device to connect?

I'm showing two issues in "Device Manager" (Other Devices)
1. "PCI Serial Port"
2. "Pci Simple Communications"
Don't know whether this is a Bios setting issue or driver issue!
I did make changes to the bios during a fresh install of Win 7, and of course, I didn't write down the original settings!
Everything seems to function alright, but I would like to get the issue notice cleaned up.

Thanks for any help here!

I suggest running this from Microsoft. Just to check things are okay.

I have a weather staion that still uses serial connections. It isn't being reada by the software so I used the old hyperlink thingy to check the com port. The test didn't echo any of my characters so HyperLink says the ort is not functioning. Nah.

I don't think the test works well with anything but a modem. Is there any other test I can do in Win XP to check the COM1 port.

Sevice manager says that the port is fine and the BIOS is set to Auto to select the COM number. The software must be opening the port cause if I change the COM number there, it says it can't open the port. So the other times it's opening something but maybe not sending data to it.

I want to make sure the serial port is working before I go off and replace weather hardware that was good.

A:Testing a serial port with XP

You need to jumper pins 2 & 3 in the serial connector to get hyperterminal to echo characters. Here's a serial port loopback plug that you can fabricate to fully test the port. From the same site, here's some serial port test software.

Where can I find which device or program is using my COM 1 port in Win 2000?

I appreciate any help!

A:Serial port occupied

in the control panel under 'modem' or 'phone and modem options' (i forget what win2000 has) click on 'modems' (or details) it will list all devices (i think) that use ports and what port they are using

I have an older program that I want to play networked, but the only choice for networking is to do it using a serial cable.

Since newer computers dont come with serial ports, I was wondering if there is a program that allows you to emulate a virtual serial port and pass it over to another computer via normal ethernet. The same program on the other computer will translate the information back into another virtual serial port?

Any Ideas?

I have an IBM Thinkpad. When I try to hook up to my Fluke DSP 4000 The serial port seems to be inactive or locked. When I go to my device manager I can't find com port 1.
How do I get my com port 1 or my serial port back.
Try to be as basic as posible with your answer. My PC skills are very limited BUT if you give me detailed instructions I can work it out. Phiel !!

Hi: You need this driver...manually install it if the auto install method doesn't work. This package provides the Intel Management Engine Components Driver for supported desktop models that are running a supported operating system.

Is there any way check or know the serial port information & do SERIAL OUTPUT TEST of my computer to make sure theres no problem without buying a software to test it like GRAHAM utilities OS/2 version...

A:serial port problem

Actually, you cannot do a real serial port test without some special hardware (and suitable software). Either some loopback adapter or a special diagnostics device.

For a quick "test", all you have to do is connect to some serial device and see if it works.
Windows comes with a Hyperterminal program that you can use with devices that know how to talk back to you in human-readable form.

A few days ago, I installed a PCI card in my computer and it has one serial and one parallel port.

When I checked to see if it is installed, the device manager says I have Com 1, Com 3 and Com 4. It seems like I should only have Com 1 (on motherboard) and Com 3 or Com 4.

Does this look right?

I am using Windows XP SP2 and my computer is a dual core pentium 4 with an intel motherboard.
