Hi everyone, I am running 98se on a 300mgh pentium 2 with 80mb sd ram. I received this comp used, and it has always had this problem. When I go to device mgr, I have listed 1 lpt printer port, a com 1, a com 2, and the problem I have a listing of com port, no number, just com port, and it has a ! next to it. I have tried removing the port, when I reboot, windows finds new hardware(the port), but it always has a !next to it. Was wondering if anyone has any clues/ideas as to why Windows isn`t reinstalling this com port properly. Thanks for your time, and any replys.

Regards

Try going into the bios of the machine and changing the physical address of the port if your bios allows it.
