    Has the receiver been setup correctly ? Ie if you close winlirc, can you use IRGraph to see the signal ?

    From the specs of your laptop it looks like it has built in IR port. Are you trying to use that?
    If so, then SerialDevice.dll is probably a wrong plugin to use unless this built in IR port is usable like a serial port.
