Chinese Arduino UNO Board not recognized

Most reason that the chinese Arduino clones won’t be recognized by your computer is the use of a CH340G chip for the serial to USB connection.
If your are running on Windows 7 there are several sites where you can download a driver for this chip.
In my case it didn’t help because I tried to connect and power the board over a standard USB cable. The 2 red LEDs were on but still no connection. Then I used an external 12V DC power supply connect to the power jack of the board and when connecting the USB cable with my computer it started to install the CH340 driver.
