A question about com ports

hi, this is a carry on from last week, win98, trying to sort my daughters PC out, which was mine until i took it over to her last week, can not get the modem to work,it tells me to make sure it is plugged in, so tried an external one, same message.....a couple of times it said "port already open" now, i am going back over there tomorrow..and as usual will be clutching straws,is it easy to change a com port? if that is what it is, there is nothing else plugged in to the PC, except, mouse keyboard, and monitor...the external modem is a serial port one.

anyone any ideas where i can start looking.

thanks

I would try removing the Modem card and re-seating it as when you transported the PC it may have worked loose.
