    Hello,
    I have upgraded my OS to Windows 10 from 7 and I can not see the PORTS(COM and LTE) in the device manager. I tried everything but don't know how to find it. Does anybody know how to fix it. Untitled.png

    It seems you have an "Unknown device" in device manager.
    That could be anything from a chipset driver, to a USB and or Serial Device driver needing attention.
    Have you checked Sony's support site for your Vaio to see if they have any driver updates for it, paying particular attention to BIOS, Chipset, Storage controllers, USB, Network, Video, Audio, etc.?

    I did all of that but it's not working. I checked on another 2 PC's which has Windows 10 and there also I can not find the PORTS(COM and LTE) in the device manager. Is it the Windows 10 problem ??? and what can I do to get PORTS(COM and LTE) in windows 10 as I need this for my programming work.

    I don't have any such thing either in device manager.
    That's because my motherboard doesn't have any integrated COM (serial) ports nor any integrated LPT (which I assume is what you mean.... parallel) ports.

    yes but when I had windows 7 on my laptop the PORTS(COM and LTE) in my device manager. Actually this is much needed for my hterm interface. I have to mention COMPORT number to this interface. As soon as I upgraded my Windows 7 to 10 it disappears??? Any possible reason???

    Generally speaking you can enable or disable integrated serial and or lpt ports in the system setup utility for your motherboard (BIOS), you should probably check there first and then make sure that you clear up device manager and resolve the problem with the device that is showing above as likely missing a driver. That could be a serial port (com / communication). But it is certainly not likely to be both com and lpt and I do not know what an LTE port is.

    Hello Ravi, follow these steps:
    1. Open "Device Manager"
    2. Select menu "Action" -> "Add legacy hardware", then Click "Next"
    3. Select "Install the hardware that I manually select from a list (Advanced)" -> then click "Next"
    4. Scroll down, then select "Ports (COM & LPT)", then click "Next"
    5. Select "Manufacturer" as your need, (in this case, I'm selecting standard type or default option) then click "Next"
    6. Finish!

    I hope this helps.
