Promethean serial to USB problem
The school i work in are having a problem with an Activboard. It has a serial/usb convertor to connect the board to a laptop that has no serial port but I cannot get it working for the life of me.
It is one of the old prometheans with the power jack in the top of the serial connector.
The laptop detects the adaptor making the two beeps but still displays the icon on the laptop in the bottom left, with a board and red cross over it. I have updated the drivers on the laptop and still having the problem. Also i have tryed a different laptop which is working within a different room with the same type of board and it works fine. So i no the board is works but i can not get the class laptop to operate the board. help
