Its more likely that the computer has no COM ports thus you will need a USB to Serial adapter.

i did it before but cant remember how, think it was along the lines of .start menu. right click computer.manage- and cant think what i did then, i had to select which port i wanted to open, it can defintly be done as i did it before on the same notebook (i recently cleared my c drive to default so all settings have gone back)

A com port is usually a serial port but can also be designated to a modem. Does your laptop have a serial port or a phone jack for a dial up modem? If it has neither that's why there are no com ports shown in device manager. What device is it you are connecting to your USB port. Also what is or where is the "com port 1 does not exist" "interface not found" message being displayed?
