My daughters University PC has a 550 AMD processor running Win 98. I have added a second hard drive and installed Win 2000 as a second boot option on the second partition,as she has some newer programs to run. Everything works fine on the Win 98 system as before. On the Win 2000 setup it won't find the modem (which is on Com port 2). I have tried to add a second com port on win 2000 but it goes straight to com port 3. Any ideas please. I have tried all the troubleshooters but all they say is add another com port.
If it works in Win98 do not alter the BIOS settings for the port it's Win 2000 that's not putting it on the right port. Do it from the Add New Hardware wizard in Control Panel there you can choose the port. But first remove the port that it's Added in Device Manager. It look's like it should be on Com2
