Over the course of about 15 minutes of me being away from my computer, I came back to my serial port being greyed out. I hadn't installed or changed any drivers to my knowledge and to confirm this, I did a system restore to yesterday. I have tried 2 different boards AND connecting reset to GND and Digital 1 to Digital 2 with jumpers. The boards are also not discovered on other various computers. I am using Windows 7 32 bit and am able to recognize other hardware such as memory sticks etc. but the boards are not being recognized AT ALL and there is no changes under the device manager when the board is disconnected and reconnected. Any suggestions are helpful and methods of troubleshooting for this issue are welcomed. I have also tried reinstalling Arduino with the FTDI drivers.
Edit: The board is also receiving power if anyone is wondering...so it is not the USB cable/port. It also works on another computer with very similar specs and the EXACT same operating system and the EXACT same version of Arduino.
