Is the serial lead the official Rev-Ed AXE027 or is it a different USB to serial adaptor? Some other makes do not work for programming the Picaxe. The minimal programming circuit (the two resistors) is shown in manual 1 (not 2 as I said above) page 27 and once you have the serial lead connected to this you can run the diagnostics in the Programming Editor :- Select View / Options / Serial Port, and make sure you have the correct port selected. Then click 'show serial port tools' and 'test port' and follow the instructions there. This checks the levels on the programming pins.
