Now I cant program it at all... WHAT TO DO??? The hardware works fine. I am using a SERIAL cable. And YES, I DID have the head pin thing o the prog. position. PLEASE HELP!!! THANKS!!!!!

1. You know it works.
2. Does it still work on the other PC
3. The picaxe08 hasn't changed - unless you have made a considerable effort to erase the boot programme (not easy)
4. Check the com port is active
5. Try downloading with picaxe turned off and when you see the down load bar turn it on.
6. You will get much better support from the Picaxe forum at http://www.picaxeforum.co.uk/
