I can't seem to set up my com ports so that my modem will be detected, modem
works fine in Win95.  I'm getting two errors at startup:
"A conflict has been detected between two drivers which claimed two
overlapping Io port regions. Driver Sermouse, with device
<\Device\PointerPort0.Translated>, claimed an IO port range with starting
address in data address 0x28 and 0x2c, and length in data address 0x30." and
"A conflict has been detected between two drivers which claimed two
overlapping Io port regions. Driver Serial, with device
<\Device\Serial10001.Translated>, claimed an IO port range with starting
address in data address 0x28 and 0x2c, and length in data address 0x30. "
How do you change the starting address for a driver?  I tried creating other com ports, but SERIAL keeps deleting them after finding that they are not serial ports!  What should I do to get my modem detected?

Naturally, this is not a modem problem. To fix your com ports problems, could you try to remove the COM ports from the peripherals list, then reboot, go to your BIOS, write down the Hex addresses and IRQ's for your COM ports, quit the BIOS, start Win 95, autodetect the COM ports, and see if it works?
Thanks
If that doesn't work, please post the hex addresses I asked for.

HI,

You have a problem with the bios-configuration of your PC. I suppose you're using PCI-cards mixed with ISA-cards.
Well, the PCI-cards don't know the used addresses of the ISA-cards, so you need to tell your PC this information. You do this by the ICU for DOS-utility. It's a standalone boot diskette, and there you have all the information from the installed PCI-cards. The only thing you must do, add all the inserted ISA-cards to your configuration, with all the knowed parameters like IRQ, IO-address, Memory-usage ... Reboot your PC, and when everything is good configured, it will work.

Good luck .
