Frequently Asked Questions

Installation

Some driver installation packages may require you to disable driver signature enforcement in Windows 8, which will allow unsigned driver packages to be installed on your system.

Note: Before you continue, save any open documents and close all open programs.

To disable driver signature enforcement, complete the following:

  1. Press the Windows key + C.
  2. Click Settings > Change PC Settings.
  3. In the left pane, click General.
  4. In the right pane, under Advanced startup, click Restart now.

When your system finishes restarting, complete the following:

  1. Click Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Startup Settings > Restart.
  2. Press 7.

When your computer restarts, driver signature enforcement will be disabled and you can install your drivers.

Note: When you restart your computer after you install your drivers, driver signature enforcement will be enabled again. This does not prevent your newly installed drivers from working, but does prevent any other unsigned drivers from being installed until driver signature enforcement is disabled.

Some driver installation packages may require you to disable driver signature enforcement in Windows 8.1, which will allow unsigned driver packages to be installed on your system.

Note: Before you continue, save any open documents and close all open programs.

How to

To confirm that Windows detects your USB device, complete the following:

  1. Press the Windows key+R, type devmgmt.msc, and press Enter.
  2. In Device Manager, under the appropriate heading, confirm that your expansion card is listed and that there isn't an exclamation mark next to it.  For example, a USB controller card would be under Universal Serial Bus controllers.

Your USB device is listed according to the name of the chipset. To determine the name of the chipset of your USB device, navigate to www.StarTech.com and look on the Technical Specifications tab for your product.

To confirm that the Mac OS detects your USB device, complete the following:

  1. Click the Apple icon.
  2. Click About This Mac.
  3. Click More Info or System Report.
  4. Under the appropriate heading, confirm that your USB device is listed and that there isn't an error. For example, a network card would be under Ethernet Cards.

You may need to refresh the System Information page after you plug in your device.  To do so, press Command R with the System Information page open.

Your USB device is listed according to the name of the chipset. To determine the name of the chipset of your USB device, navigate to www.StarTech.com and look on the Technical Specifications tab for your product.

Troubleshooting

When you troubleshoot issues with a serial device, there are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential problems. You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:

  • Serial cables

  • Serial ports

  • Serial devices

To test your setup components, try the following:

  • Use the serial cable, serial port, and serial device in another setup to see if the problem is with the components or the setup.

  • Use a different serial cable, serial port, and serial device in your setup to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in another setup.

When you test your cables, it is recommended that you do the following:

  • Test each cable individually.

  • Use short cables when you are testing.

When you test the serial ports and serial device, it is recommended that you do the following:

Note: Some serial devices work only if the COM port number is between a certain range. For example, COM1 to COM4.

To check whether or not an RS-232 serial port is working, perform an RS-232 loopback test by doing the following:

  1. If your serial port is not female, convert it by taking a female/female cable or gender changer and plugging it into the serial port.
  2. Take a metal paperclip or wire and cross pins 2 and 3. If you look closely at the female end, the pins should be numbered.
  3. Open a telnet session on the COM port number of the device that you are testing. To find out the COM port number, refer to the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/faq/com-port-listing-windows.

Note: To open a telnet session on the COM port, you need a telnet client like PuTTY or Hyper Terminal. Windows XP comes with Hyper Terminal.

  1. When the session is open, anything you type into it you should see. The loopback test fails when you cannot see what you are typing.

If the loopback test fails, make sure that the serial cable or gender changer that you are using works and that the adapter is in the correct port. 

You can check multiple ports at the same time by opening multiple sessions, putting the loopback adapter on one port, and trying to type into each session.  When you can see what you are typing, you know that the COM port is working and you can see which port number the physical serial port is. Close the window for the port that you just tested to speed up the testing of the remaining serial ports.
