Garbage usually means an incorrect baud rate.

Please check the baud rate. The LCD should be set to 19,200 by default (it will show the speed for a few seconds when it powers up).

Make sure the software you use is set to the same baud rate.

Let us know what happens.

is it any chances that the usb to rs232 is broken??

Well, if it works serial, but not through the adapter, then the adapter would be suspect.

If you would like, I am sure we could just arrange to send the module back here, we could convert it to USB, and send it back.
