Windows95 Setup question

I've just upgraded to Win95. I have a high speed serial port, with 16650 UART. The mouse is connected to COM1 and the modem to COM2. I've noticed a LOT of overruns. By chance I discovered they occur whenever I move the mouse.
What can I do?

Go to control panel/system/device manager
look at the mouse? does it have a yellow exclamation mark??
If, so double click on it, and click on the resources tab, it should tell you if there are any conflicts here.
Even if it doesn't, click on it & click remove.
When asked do you want to delete the drivers say yes.
You will need to restart.
I take it (from your question)you are using trumpet winsock. Don't.
Use the microsoft supplied TCP/IP stack, check your manual for how to set this up, or contact your ISP.
Don't, don't use trumpet winsock unless you really have to.

I'm still getting overruns. The mouse works, but it disappeared from device manager's menu.
Why should I not use Trumpet?

Trumpet is a 16bit stack, (unless you have a win95 version).
From what you have told me I would hazard a guess that you installed Win95 into the same dir as win3.x as an upgrade?
If this is so then go to a DOS prompt, go to you r windows directory, rename your win.ini to win.bad (or something), rename your system.ini to system.bad and COPY system.cb to system.ini (do NOT rename system.cb).
Shut down & restart your machine. Your mouse should not work at all.
Use CTRL+ESC to get your start button, go to control panel & run the add new hardware wizard.

I did it. EVERYTHING crashed. I had to restore it. It took a while. I still get the overruns.

Everything????
Then you must be running a loadda 16 bit stuff.
When did everything crash? When you ran it? If so a simple re-install of required programs would have refreshed their system/win ini settings.
Why are you using Trumpet? It is a great Win 3.x stack but not for Win95, which has built in TCP/IP support.

Anyway, I'm back on Win 3.11, with no problems. Just hold on, I'm going to post another question and you'll understand why.
