Default Anyone in MD willing to let me use their laptop for a few minutes please read!

I'm looking for a lap top so that I can turn on my launch control via UTEC. I believe you have to have a serial port on your laptop, I tried using mine and a usb-serial adapter but no luck. I will of course drive to you and throw a little bit of cash your way. The closer to baltimore the better.

Thanks!
Lee

You may want to try a different brand/chipset of USB-Serial adapter on your laptop.

Thats what it looks like from what I am seeing, but I'm looking into what moxnix said also.

Well the one from tuneyourengine.com to the non working, I've tried a few times trying to get it to work. Yet it works with my wideband... Hmmm

In hyper terminal, it only lets me select COM3, and none of my USB ports work, hopefully it isjust the cable. What was the brand of the one from bestbuy?? I will have to try it.
