How do I find what is assigned to a COM port. I see that
COM 1 is in use but I can't figure out which device is
using it. I need to use COM 1 for a serial device so I
can run it in DOS mode.
I have a windows 98 machine
500 hmz celeron 64mb ram
Riva tnt creative labs video AGP
"Creative labs PCI128 sound card
Kingston PCI Ethernet card
and a US Robotics 56k PCI modem
When I went to install the modem a couple of days ago it installed
fine but it is listed in windows as being com 5.
The serial ports are listed as com 1 and 2. There are no other signs
of COM's 3,4
I even disabled com 2 from the bios and then reinstalled the modem
hoping it would pickup the com 2 slot but no such luck
Any ideas would be appreciated.
