"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Go to device manager - details and check your hardwareID there  and paste it to google.
You can also paste it here in case that you don't find driver. :)

If you have Prolific USB-to-Serial 2303 chip (as I do) you will not be able to use it on windows 8 or later - as much as I read there won't be driver (just as a side note).
