Reinstall the motherboard drivers for this system, in case they got corrupted.  Perhaps you should try a PCI card with a serial port, since this could be an intermittent failure with your existing port.  You can also boot with a Knoppix CD to see if it reports hardware errors, and if it does, you know it isn't a driver problem.

What is your interface's Serial Data Format? What photographic software are you using to Tag your images? This is a common error if the Serial Data Format of the gps does not match that of the image tagging software.
