I have to use the black serial link in order to download anything to my calculator and it comes with a USB. But, the serial works.

Check to make sure TI-Connect is looking on the right port, whether USB or serial. If you have a serial cable, you might consider using Ti's Graph-Link software to connect. I have had trouble getting it to work right with TI-Connect. You can find Graph-Link on TI's Education site under Downloads > Connectivity Software. I personally prefer the free program TiLP, which runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux and supports whatever cable you want. Hope this helps!

Sorry, answer was posted as a clarification request.
Here it is from the horse's mouth (TI Knowledge base)
For the TI-83 Plus Family, TI-84 Plus Family:
Caution: The resets described in these troubleshooting steps will cause a lossof applications, programs and data. If at all possible please create a backup using TI Connect™ first.
Reinstalling the OS fot the TI84Plus
How do I correct the Error Waiting...Please Install Calculator SoftwareNow message on my TI-83 Plus family or TI-84 Plus family calculator?
If an operating system (OS) update fails or is interrupted, the calculator will be in an inoperable state with the message Waiting...Please install calculator software now.The most common cause of a transfer being interrupted is updating theoperating system on a calculator with low batteries. Users will need touse the TI Connectivity cable and the TI Connect software to send theoperating system to the calculator. Make sure to have the latestversion of TI Connect installed on the computer.
In order to install the software please follow these steps:
1. Connect the TI Connectivity cable between the computer and the calculator.
2. Click on Start >> Programs >> TI Tools >> TI Connect >> TI OSDownloader
3. Follow the on-screen directions to reinstall the calculator's OS.
Ifthe message "Error! Press any key to turn unit off. Then turn unit backon." appears on the graphing calculator, quickly, remove one batteryfrom the calculator and reinstall it while the transfer is taking place.
Hope it helps.

SOURCE: Ti connect doesn't find it.
If you use the TI USB Silver Link cable there should not be any problem. In case of problems, download the latest TI connect software and install it anew.
But if you use the mini UsB to Standard USB Direct cable you will have to install manually the correct drivers.
Here is a copy of a post I wrote to answrer that question.
If you have a USB SilverLink cable, use it to connect the calculator though the I/O (round) port.
If you do not have a USB SilverLink cable, you can use the mini USB to USB Direct cable but you will have to install the correct driver for it.
I do not know what computer operating system you are running and I use Windows XP so I will describe the installation procedure for Windows XP SP3.
Install TI connect 1.6 for Windows; if your system is Vista you must install a patch available on the TI website, at the same page where you find TI Connect.
After you install TI Connect, connect you calculator to the computer with the mini USB standard USB Direct cable. Windows will detect the calculator and will try to install the drivers. You will have something that is similar to what is on the three screen captures I am inserting in the post. On the last screen, choose the TI Educational Handheld device and click next.
When Windows asks to stop installation, click continue anyway
After the installation, click finish.
Device manager will show you something like what is on next screen (TI Educational Handheld device)
Run TI Connect to verify that the calculator is recognized. Connect your computer to the Internet and click the Updates Button on the TI Connect tool bar.

SOURCE: my student's ti nspire won't
Put in new batteries and try again.
If new batteries did not solve the problem, the next thing to check would be the battery terminal.
If the battery terminal is rusty, the battery power won't contact and the calculator won't turn on. So, use a flat small screw drive to scratch the battery terminal so that there would be contact.
If the above is not the problem, the next to check would be the wire connecting the battery terminal to the the calculator's main board. There is a wire between the battery terminal and the calculator board. When the battery is inserted, the power from the battery goes from the terminal to the board through this wire. There is a possibility that this wire is cut in-between or is loosing contact. In this case, you need to get a small screw driver and carefully disassemble the calculator in order to check the wire.
If the wire is intact, use a light brush to brush the calculator board as there might be dust on the board.
If non of the above helps, then it means the calculator is dead and needs a replacement.
