I have an AT&T Pentium computer with a 19.2 modem which was set up for Com port 3 (the modem and sound card are integrated and on the PCI bus).  I installed a ZOOM 56K flex modem in an ISA bus and windows put the modem on Com port 4 and IRQ 11.  The new modem works great, but when I tried to install a HP 5P Scsi Scanner it would not work and it fouled up the new modem.  I took the scanner off and reloaded the modem software and the modem works again.  I would like to put the scanner back on but am not sure how to do this.

Probably the SCSi adapter is not Plug & Play, read the manual and try to find the Irq setting for the adapter.
Move it to an different IRQ.
If it doesn't work go to Control Panel, choose System, Device Manager, Prots, Comm4, Properties, Resources. And unmark Use automatic settings. Then change the IRQ for Modem.

I hope it help you.

Thanks for the response.  I will try your suggestion later.  Would a full SCSI card like an adaptec board work better in this situation.  I have access to this board from a friend and I am considering one of those CD ROMS that you can write to one time.

the scsi card included with the SJ scanners are a bit wierd.. they can ONLY use IRQ11. SO you have to move your COm card.

Thanks for the reply, especially on Christmas Day.  I will try to manually re-install the modem to irq 3 and com4.  I took the scanner back to sams, but I may try another one if I can get the com port irq moved.  I can also get the adaptec full scsi card from my friend to see if that helps.

Thanks again.
