I have a problem trying to access my COM1. When I typed "MODE COM1 /status" it says that the device COM1 is not currently available. Next I checked the device manager but it has no conflict with COM2. COM1 has the address 03f8 IRQ4 while COM2 is 02f8 IRQ3. I have also checked the BIOS and both COM ports are enabled. I am using Siemens TC35 on Windows 2000. When i change to COM2, the modem works fine. But the problem is that I have another computer that only has COM1 and is experiencing the same problem. Is there any way of accessing COM1 in Windows 2000?
