Strange ! Computer reboots if COM 1 or COM 2 is enabled in the BIOS.
Posted on 2004-08-16
I have this strange problem which has just started...
When the computer is booting, if either of the COM ports are enabled in the BIOS, it will just reset itself !?! It will do this a couple of seconds after Windows starts loading.
The computer is running Windows 95 and can't be upgraded as it is running specialist software. I have tried to upgrade the BIOS which is AMI HIFLEX, but all the sites require you to specify a M/B, make. The trouble is, the M/B is a one-off as it has built in I/O functions to control external items. It looks like the chipset on the M/B is ALi.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
