When I dial in to my internet provider, the moment the connection is established, the mouse freezes. When the connection is broken, the mouse comes back to life.
The mouse and the modem are on the usual com ports. I know that I said LPT, that was a mistype.

You shouldn't have either mouse or modem on LPT port. If you are using Win 95 go to device manager and remove both items and reboot your system and let 95 reinstall them.  You should know what IRQ and COM port your modem is set for from the manufacturer.

Ok, got your edited question; same advice.  Go to 'device manager'and "remove" the mouse, the modem, even the ports and let 95 reinstall all.

I am assuming that you do not want to look at "properties" for each device and change them manually.  However, you might look in 'device manager', modem (etc.), 'properties' to see if there is a conflict.

If you want to get into hardware diags I know of some very good programs.  It is an interesting field and can actually be $$rewarding.

Sorry I havent graded or responded. the modem problem hasnt gone away.
I am using a logitech serial mouse. on com 1, irq 4, Address 3F8. the modem is on com2, irq3, address 2F8.
when i do a diagnostic on the modem, ATI 7 returns an error.
the computer reported a conflict with com4. i removed com4, but this did not help.
com2 properties ae i/o range 02F8-02FF
IRQ 3, no conflicts.

thanks for your help.
