If you've updated your software and checked the drivers but the issue still persists, try the following things:

  • Unplug the USB device and then plug it back in. Make sure that the connection is snug and installed in the proper direction. Note that USB plugs fit one way only—if you try to plug them in upside-down, it will not insert.
If this does not solve your issue-
  • Unplug all USB devices from the computer. Then start plugging in USB devices one at a time, testing each one to make sure they all work before adding the next. Sometimes two devices will conflict and will work together.
If this does not solve your issue-
  • Is this a new device that never worked, or is it a device that you've had for a while that suddenly stopped working? If it used to work, think about what changed just before the device stopped working. Did you recently add another new device? Install a new program? Try reverting the computer to the way it was before the device stopped working. If it works again, there is an incompatibility with the device and whatever you added.
If this does not solve your issue-
  • Unplug all but suspected USB devices. Open System Devices menu-
    • Windows: Right click “My Computer” > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager > USB Serial Bus Controllers
    Under the USB information, you should see the USB devices connected to your system. (Disregard any Host controllers) The name may not be identical to your device (it may say “USB Mass storage device”), but it should have the right number of devices listed.
If this does not solve your issue-
  • If you have the device plugged into a USB hub or into your keyboard, plug it directly into one of the USB ports on the computer. If it works there, the issue is with the device to which it had been previously connected. The device may need more power than the port provides
  • Try a different computer!

I need a driver for my USB to serial port cable and my laptop does not have a cd to read the disk


You have at least one USB slot. On another computer you can try copying the driver CD to a USB drive, then use the USB drive to install the driver.

Pci card doesint work


What you want is a USB hub.  That will allow you to connect more than two USB devices to your computer.  There are two types, USB 2.0 and USB 1.1.  USB 1.1 will work for most slow speed devices, USB 2.0 is better for cameras and hard disks that have the support.  You should confirm which version of USB your computer has, but you should be OK getting a USB 4-port hub, plugging that into your computer, then plugging your keyboard and mouse into the hub and using the other port for the new peripheral that you wish to install.  Old PCI cards are problematic because you need the correct drivers.  You also need to make sure you plug them into the proper PCI port.  It sounds like the device you got from e-bay might be bad, so you shouldn't continue to use it.  If you post the make / model of your computer we might be able to suggest a new PCI card that will work if you still want to add more ports to your computer.
