Every time I start my computer (Pentium 166), I get 3F8h Com Address Conflict. My options are to press F1 to continue or F2 for BIOS. How do I stop this from happening?

press f2 for the Bios and turn off com 1.  Most likely the modem is using the same com port.

What OS are you using?
What hardware is installed? Maybe it's all in the internal modem
If it's WIN 95 and PnP modem, give me the model of your modem and
jumpers location. If your modem is in PnP mode just turn off com1
in your BIOS or you can make your modem use Com1 directly by setting the jumpers according to the manual.
