    I know you used to be able to get PCI versions for desktops but I don't know about laptops, nor do I know their proper name/format for me to properly search for them.

    I don't know - I thought an adaptor would be easier- but maybe I can look into it

    I know from experience the Promethean boards are very fussy for some reason on USB to serial adaptors, actually various products are, I have a phone system that hates my cheap USB-Serial adaptor but every other one I work on is fine with it. Randomness I tell you

    I have about 4 or 5 promethean serial leads upstairs in my store room, as every new board we've brought recently has come with one, but we don't need them as we use the USB lead for them all - I just like hoarding stuff as it seems such a waste to put a perfecally good lead in the bin.

    If you live near kent (I don't know where you are) or remind me to send one by PM'ing me tomorrow with your address, you're are welcome to it for the cost of postage (free if you collect it of course)

    Mike.

    Yes, I noticed that but I really need confirmation from someone that it will DEFINITELY work with the promethean, as I said I have tried two others (one was a targus, can't remember the other) and they should have worked, but didn't
    Thanks for the thought though
