I think you may want to read this pos ( first and add some extra information.

Also make sure you are not using a USB 3.0 port and that you have selected the correct COM port as listed in windows device manager for the board (you failed to mention type).

Are you certain your Edison board is on COM5?

Try this:

If the COM5 port is correct, try restarting your computer. Sometimes COM ports can get stuck and cause this sort of problem.
