I've probably been posted to the wrong forum, so hope this is the correct one. My Keyspan USB-Serial Converter has the FTDI driver automatically loaded by Windows 7. This may be my problem with the frequent blue-screens-of-death and WD lockups I've been having the past few weeks. I got a new computer the end of this August and have had 7 BSOD and as many or more WD lockups since September 6th. I've tried to update the driver but not sure which one to use - a Prolific one or one from the Keyspan site for a Windows 7 PC (although the Keyspan one does not assigned the driver to the Ports category). I'm trying to make this work for the Keyspan since it seems to have good reviews as a USB-Serial Converter. I ordered and received a Digi Edgeport/1 USB-Serial Converter, but haven't tried it yet. If anyone knows how to install the correct Keyspan driver as a Port driver, please let me know. I've been searching weather-watch and google with no luck. Not even sure which chipset the Keyspan uses.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. With my previous PC with Windows 7, I did have a few lockups but NO BSODs. Once, I had WD running continually for over 1 million data receives before I had to reboot for another reason.
