Problem with Intel Edison board


Hello dear community!

I want to connect and use my Intel Edison board with node.js, also I instal "npm install galileo-io johnny-five" and "npm install node-red-node-intel-gpio". All drivers and software I install thanks to Intel Edison Board Configuration tool. (I`m newbie, so if I misunderstood something, I'll be grateful for your comments) So I have two problems:

1) To check my board I`ll also install Putty. As serial line I choose serial from Device Managed (COM5). Write speed 115200 (another speed trying too), and in result I have only black screen without anything. Pressed Enter, write another speed,- nothing.

2) After running node-red - I have a lot warnings.
