It may help to know which prolific USB to serial adapter you have. I know that more than one person has had problems with different serial adapters.

I use one made by BAFO which when I first tried it several years ago did not work for me. But then I hooked it up through a external powered USB HUB and it works great for me in that configuration.

Some Prolific adapters are PDA adapters and not true serial port adapters so they don't have all the necessary signal lines(eg rts or dtr). Another possibility is the driver you are using. We've had a half dozen different prolific based adapters. All of them worked but it depended greatly on which driver was bing used. Many didn't work with the provided driver(eg the one in the box). Try downloading the latest driver from Prolific and see what happens.

We primarily recommend FTDI based adapters now. We have had zero failures with them(though some took some work :) ). All other brands depending on the model seem to be somewhat hit or miss.

It might help to have additional information. Like:
What type of PC? What OS? (if Vista or W7 are you 32 bit or 64 bit)

Have you updated the drop down list in Basic Micro to point to the right comm port? Try telling it to use a different one and then select it back. I had a problem awhile ago that the actual comm port was not fully set up and this cleared it for me.

Is the Basic Atom Pro 28 properly put into the socket of the Bot Board 2? Make sure all of the pins are properly seated and pin 1 is in the right spot.

Try removing everything except power from the BB2 and the serial port and try it. Sometimes there can be a short or the like that causes problems...

It runs fine on my Windows 7 machine, but I am running 32 bit version. I believe some people have had issues on the 64 bit version with getting the drivers installed for Basic Micro boards which use FTDI drivers. I think some of them needed to install drivers manually. You might try going to the device manager and see if update drivers finds some new ones for you...

I have had this problem 3 times. The first was with the Basic Atom. It turned out that the module I was using was an older version and not compatable with Studio, A switch to a new version solved that problem. The second problem was related to the Nanos. After I switched to Windows 7 64 bit, the Studio would not find the chips using the Nano programer. This was solved by manually installing the drivers. The problem reoccured after I replaced my Nano programer with a new one (I fried the first one). The problem was again resolved by manually installing the drivers. The two programmers use different (ftdi?) chips and evidently Windows saw the need for new drivers. I have a feeling that your problem might be the same as the problem I had with the Nanos. Nathan has posted the process for manually loading the drivers here; atompro-f486/usb-drivers-not-working-windows-7-t9359.html.

If that dosn't work, I have found that the people at Micro are dead serious about helping customers solve problems with their products. I'm sure they will help solve yours.

I think a problem may be that from a picture posted on Lynxmotion, it looks to me like the module is a Atom28 not a AtomPro28...

If the module is green you have an Atom module. If the module is red you hav a Pro module.
