Irq conflict

I have a NEC PowerMate 75.  When I install a modem card
(supra 288i) I get an irq/io error.  Also says motherboard
error #07.  Then the b drive no longer works.  This seems
be just an irq conflict. I am using an ISA expansion slot
but I don't know how to redirect the IRQ.  I assume the
modem should work with and ISA slot.  Any help would be
great.  Thanks in advance.

Most internal modems are set for COM2, IRQ3 but most mother boards have both COM1 and COM2 available on the motherboard.
Your option is to go into SETUP (look on the screen as you boot
up to see if pressing ESC or DEL will put you in SETUP) and
disable COM2, so the mother board can have it, or look on the
modem and see if you can set it for COM3, IRQ5   (IRQ5 is normally used only by a second parallel port).
