You probably have "enabled" both the COM1 and COM2 ports on the motherboard,
*AND* have an internal modem which is trying to claim COM2 for itself.

Hence, you have an I/O "conflict".

Enable BIOS-setup, and "disable" the motherboard's COM2 port.
Then, the modem will be able to claim exclusive use of COM2.



Now, how are you going to award "answer-points" to two different E-E experts?
You posted one question, but you asked two different questions.

cheack in device manager if there are yellow spots on primary IDE channel and secondary IDE channel if so that mean u have some kind of virus in ur computer u have to format and reinstall windows, if there are no yellow spot then check ide power cable  attached with cd rom if these are ok then add one more ide controller from add new hardware icon in control panel let windows detect it self for controller.
for conflict goto bios try changing IO valus of com2 if it does not work then diable it.

Nonsense -- 999 times out of a thousand.

> com2 if it does not work then disable it.

That was already suggested.

02F8 - 02ff is the Input/Output range for COM2.  To find out about the conflicting devices, double click the computer icon labelled System and click the Device Manager tab.  Find the Ports (COM & LPT) device and click the + to expand the device list under Ports.  Select COM2 and then click Properties.  The window will show the I/O range as 03F8-03FF and the Interrupt request 03.  In the conflict device list you will find details of the conflicting devices which is most likely your modem.
Go back to the Device Manager and select COM2 and click on the Remove button.  This will remove the device currently assigned as COM2.  When the Confirm Device Removal warning appears, click OK.  If you think you can do with that additional port then use the ADD/REMOVE HARDWARE in the Control Panel to add a communication port (COM-)
