Hi i am trying to get my friends Gateway Pc to detect his new sparkle modem.He installed all the software put in the card but when getting info for modem windows 98 throws up this message OPENCOMMS port already open!.Would i be right in saying i need to uninstall both hard and software,remove coms port in device manager,then reinstall.Plus software wont be uninstalled via add and remove software.please help!!

Go to Device Manager remove all com ports and any modems you find and restart your comp
