Hyperterminal window doesn't refresh unless I move the mouse

I connect to my university (PINE email) using Hyperterminal but I have to constantly move the mouse in order for the display to update.  My modem is an MWAVE internal 28.8kbs voice, fax, data with soundcard attached.  The other end is 28.8kbs
Windows auto selects the mouse to have IRQ 4 and has 5 configuration options for COM ports on either IRQ 3 or 4 - is there any way of having 3 or more communication cards with Win 95 without disabling the one while using the third?
I've got the mouse on COM 1, interupt 4, and my internal modem as COM 3, interupt 3 with COM 2 disabled - if I were to use it, it'd be for a serial link.

Seems you've got an IRQ conflict between your mouse and modem.
You can try one of these :

- change your mouse to your other COM port (may require an adapter 25->9 pins or 9->25 pins).
- change the IRQ your modem is set to : you'll probably have to open your pc and consult your documentation, change a jumper on the modem board and reboot.

hope this helps ...
