Is it your 2M radio? Did you have a cd/dvd and programming cable that came with the radio?

Do you know the chipset of your cable?

Almost all Prolific cables are counterfeit garbage. The tendency is that they work once, and windows flags them and silently disables them, meaning they'll never work on that computer again without a lot of annoyingly complex futzing.

The fix in this case is to get an FTDI cable. For short term, you can use a prolific on another computer. Once probably.

I had the same issue. Got a non-Prolific cable and the problem is gone.
