Restoring my COM port 2 !!!!
Posted on 1998-10-26
I am in need of an extra COM port (25 pins) but my CMOS says that COM port 2 is disabled. When I enable the COM2... Win95 and DOS crashes... Why is this so ?
By the way, I have an internal modem with Win95 detects to be using COM 2 and I think it is the main problem, and I don't know how to free the unused COM2..
I intend to buy I/O cards but they only have ISA slots type, and I am out of these ISA slots. The PCI types are very difficult to find and are very expensive.
So is there a way to enable the COM port 2 without causing clashes with the system and doing any external hardware alterations.
