Could not find Com Port 4 in Device Manager when Sparkfun ESP32 board was plugged in
Was working previously with same usb cable running same scripts
Port is gray in “Tool” drop down
Tried several USB ports on Windows machine
Thanks to both of you for your responses
I swapped cables that I am sure I used before (actually both of them I believe did work at one time). One other symptom, the light next to the usb port flashes yellow. Anyway, I got the following error message;

does not exist or your board is not connected
This report would have more information with

option enabled in File -> Preferences.
I have run the board and operated components from the Web. The Laptop Device Manager says for Com Port 4…
<Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer. (Code 45)
To fix this problem, reconnect this hardware device to the computer.>
And it says Silicon Labs CP210x USB to UART Bridge (COM4) in the General Tab
The Port settings are, 9600 bps, 8 bits, no parity and one stop bit
The driver revision is 6/20/2019
Redo setup again
set the boardManager for your version of esp32 Image
But I use Geekcreit Board
I hope you get it working …
Hello Michael, if it used to work before that’s definitely weird… Do you have multiple boards that you can use to test your setup?
- Remove the board from your computer (unplug the USB cable)
- Open Arduino IDE > Tools > Port
- What do you see in your Ports Menu?
- Then, plug your board to your computer: go to Tools > Port. Do you see a Port appearing?
