You need to enter the BIOS to enable COM2 - when the PC is booting up, you'll need to press or - the screen will tell you what key to enter SETUP. THen, navigate your way through the menu until you find the serial ports. It will say enabled or disabled - enable COM2. Then, in windows - go to control panel and PORTS - choose COM2 and set to 38,600 BAUD. On your keyboard - set to PC in global settings and the BAUD rate of 38.6. RE-boot PC with keyboard attached and see if that works. Good Luck!
