Have a computer where the hard drive died and I have Windows XP Reinstalled and I need to find the driver for theserial ports which were installed after themachine was purchased.

They are on a PCI card, which had 2 serial ports.  I don't know the make of it.  There is a chip onit which says Sun.
Also S/N: D941870

Is there any way I can find the drivers for this serial port?

Open device manager, and expand the pci card with the serial ports.

Double-click the device to open its properties, then click on Details

Driverguide.com indicates that the device is a Sunix PCI 4025D Multi-I/O Adapter, and they claim to have a driver for it at this page.

I would try the Sunix site driver page first, since they made the device.

Actually, according to the inf file within the installer, it is a 4037A:

;4037A, 4037AL
%4037A.CardDesc%=4037A,PCI\VEN_1409&DEV_7168&SUBSYS_40371409&REV_01

Cheers Flubbster, that first driver you linked to didn't work but when I went to the sunix website and found the product, It was the 4037A model which worked when I installed it.

Thanks

Great. Sometime the pci/ven database is not fully updated, but it definitely helps for sure to ID the product. I guess the key this time was looking inside the inf file to correctly ID the model number that I posted.

Glad it worked.
