so reinstalling it probably won't help.
Btw: I did run Linux on my old machine until it broke down completely
and I *must* run Windoze on this, because of my work, so - basically I'm
f-cked! :-) (though XP has run non-stop without *any* problems...

You mean besides switching to Linux? :)
Seriously, if you are fortunate enough to be on XP you can do that roll
back thingy to restore the previous configuration. That saved my butt a
Or you might try the system hardware config screen. Maybe the com port
got deinstalled or something. I've sometimes gotten things to work by
removing the device from there then doing a "Add New Hardware" to have
it probe for it again.
