Have you loaded the Prolific drivers:

Pay special attention on that page about Win8 not being supported by certain versions of their chip


Windows 8 is NOT supported in PL-2303HXA and PL-2303X EOL chip versions.
Run PL2303 CheckChipVersion tool program in Windows XP/Vista/7 to check chip version.
Prolific recommends to buy PL-2303HXD (HX Rev D) chip.


Ok, i'm going to try on my Aspire One with XP, after I post here the result. Thanks Louis Davis
