    Hi, im having problems with usb serial adapter. Im running Windows Xp.
    First off when i boot up my computer it freezes up in Bios page, Keyboard nothing works so i have to push restart button on computer to startup.
    The problem is i have a golf sensor mat which connects from a db9 9-pin connector to a usb serial adapter to my usb port on my computer which i cant get working. The usb port works fine with my usb mouse but doesn't seem to work when i connect usb serial adapter??
    The usb adapter shows up in Device Manager under Com Ports 4 which ive assigned to work with sensor mat , but still wont work with golf sensor mat?

    could it be wrong Usb serial adapter driver? ive tryed two usb adapters, still wont work.
    PCI Serial Card???

    Can you help?
    thanks

    Hmm, Looks like it should be working. Try opening hyperterm (start, run, hyperterm) and have it connect to com4 and see if you get any feedback.

    Just one quick thing: type hypertrm instead of hyperterm. Also, try disabling and enabling the serial ports in device manager. I'm guessing that you've already tried that, though.
