How to Fix the Prolific USB-to-Serial Code 10 Error on Windows 10
If you have a Prolific USB-to-Serial device and you see a yellow triangle with a Code 10 error in Device Manager, you are not alone. Many users have reported this problem when trying to connect their device to a Windows 10 computer. The Code 10 error means that the device cannot start due to a driver issue. In this article, we will show you how to fix this error and make your device work properly.
What causes the Prolific USB-to-Serial Code 10 error
The main cause of this error is that the device you own contains a counterfeit Prolific chip that is not compatible with the latest drivers from Prolific. The counterfeit chip uses the same Vendor ID (VID_067B) and Product ID (PID_2303) as the authentic Prolific chips, but it does not work with them. Prolific has modified their drivers to render the counterfeit devices unusable, but this also affects some older genuine devices. The drivers that Windows Update installs automatically may not work with your device and show the Code 10 error.
How to fix the Prolific USB-to-Serial Code 10 error
There are two ways to fix this error: Option 1 - Automatically (Recommended) and Option 2 - Manually. We will explain both options in detail below.
Option 1 - Automatically (Recommended)
This is the easiest and quickest way to fix the error. You just need to download and install a driver update tool that can scan your system and find the correct drivers for your device. One such tool is Driver Easy, which can automatically recognize your system and find the compatible drivers for it. You don't need to know what system your computer is running, or risk downloading and installing the wrong driver. Driver Easy handles it all.
To use Driver Easy, follow these steps:
Download and install Driver Easy from https://www.drivereasy.com/.
Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.
Click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system. This requires the Pro version of Driver Easy, which comes with full support and a 30-day money back guarantee. You can also click Update to do it for free if you like, but it's partly manual.
Restart your computer and check Device Manager to see if your Prolific USB-to-Serial device works properly now.
Option 2 - Manually
This option requires some computer skills and patience, as you need to find, download and install the driver manually. You also need to remove any previous drivers that may interfere with the installation process. To do this option, follow these steps:
Go to Prolific's official website at http://www.prolific.com.tw/.
In the Search box, enter the model type of your Prolific USB-to-Serial device and click Go.
Select the link for driver downloads and follow the on-screen instructions to download the most recent driver. Be sure to choose only the driver that is compatible with your Windows version.
Unplug your Prolific USB-to-Serial device from your computer.
Go to Device Manager and expand Ports (COM & LPT). Right-click on any Prolific USB-to-Serial Comm Port (COM X) and select Uninstall device.
Check the box that says Delete the driver software for this device and click Uninstall.
Repeat steps 5 and 6 for any other Prolific USB-to-Serial Comm Port (COM X) devices in Device Manager.
