Hyper terminal can show more COM ports on the list than you have in your computer. Check in Device Manager, if you have COM 3 port available.

It's available but when it's selected it says that it's already in use.

Some application used the port before, and did not returned it to the system. Maybe some DOS mode driver, or application. Or maybe the mouse is connected to COM3.

We set the default to COM 4...since no one else answered I'll award the points to you
