Installing Com3 & Com4
Posted on 2000-03-13
I have a P166 MMX (Award 4.51PG BIOS) with 32 MB RAM
system running under Win95. I have a 14.4 K internal
modem. My current Serial settings in the BIOS are,
Serial port1=3F8/IRQ4 and serial port2 = Disabled.
Both the mouse and the modem are working fine.
Now I wish to add one more serial port to the system
for which I have attached a Magic IO card. This card
has two comm ports and works fine on my friends PC under
win'95. However, on my system, the moment windows starts,
it gives an error that "Windows didnot detect a mouse
attached to the PC. You can safely attach a serial mouse now".
Pressing Return takes me to windows but without
How do I solve the problem ? I have tried changing
Serial port settings in BIOS to Auto etc.,
but with no success.
