Confused.

I clearly see two com ports (COM3 and COM6) in the attached graphic, with COM3 being part of the active management system your computer offers (a remote management facility used by some corporate IT departments).

Does Chirp only offer COM3?

Perhaps you need to reinstall the driver for your cable? Windows sees the port, but CHIRP does not - you r programming cable will be listed as simply a com port, probably indicating the manufacturer of the chip in the cable (prolific, FTDI, etc.) - it won't list a radio name or in any way indicate it is a programming cable.

I hope this helps,
