what IRQ is it using, sounds like that may be the issue, especially if it is an ISA with jumpers.

If it has jumpers, use 'COM4' and 'IRQ3' (and unplug any external device connected to the 'COM2' port on the back of the computer).

What model modem is this??

Does it have the jumpers to set the IRQ and Com port on it??
If so then to make it Plug and Pray you must remove all the jumpers and install it like that, this way Windoze can install it and not create a conflict, if there is still a conflict then you may have to move something to free up some resources. Before we go into that first we need some input from you.

Check for conflicts in device manager, particularly with IRQ3 look for yellow exclamation marks, and get back to us with this and modem model and interface type (eg isa/pci pnp). Try removing sound card and modem and then reinstalling modem first, are there any conflicts now? But first get back with other info.

Since COM2 and COM4 share the same
IRQ (interupt request) it's quite possible that you have a mouse plugged into com2.

Shutdown your PC, move the mouse over to the other port (if you can) and reboot.

Another option under windows 95/98 is to look under the devices section in "system" inside the control panel.
That might provide you with some clues.. sorry I can't be more specific because I'm not using windows 95/98 right now.  Under winnt there is the
windows nt diagnostics program under the administrative tools menu (under start)... if you see any conflicts with the com ports using irq3 or irq4 then thats where your trouble is.

Another possibility is that it's a PCI modem that could be conflicting with a sound card or something like that... some sound cards use several irq/io address ranges that cause grief.

Hope this helps...
