such pranks on Google. Also look at the Task manager to see
if a service process is running that might be causing this

Hello! I'm trying to install an Mwave-based Harmony 28.8 modem with
sound card into a system, but cannot use the card's modem (comm)
functions as long as ANY mouse is connected (even a bus mouse!)
The original config was:
Pentium (Triton chipset) motherboard with bios upgraded to Mr. BIOS.
Generic serial mouse on COM1, IRQ4. On-board COM2 disabled.
DOS mouse driver by Logitech, Windows 3.11 mouse driver for
Mwave board set to use COM2, IRQ3.
No other adapters or ports.
All MWave software installed.
Basically, a very standard setup. However, with the mouse connected,
the modem was not detected on any port (either by Windows or Modem
Doctor.) The sound functions work. With the mouse unplugged, the modem
responds on COM2.
I've tried every possible fix, including:
Switching mouse to COM2.
Configuring Mwave card to every other port.
Tweaking Windows port setup.
Enabling/disabling all onboard COM ports (many combinations).
Replacing the Mwave card with another one (also Mwave but sold under
another brand name) and reinstalling the Mwave drivers.
Using a Microsoft Inport card and bus mouse (tried all 4 IRQ's)
Yet ***even with a bus mouse!!!!*** the presence or ANY mouse prevents
the system from accessing the modem. There are no reports of such a bug
on any of the support sites or in previous Usenet posts. I am baffled.
Does anyone have a clue? Should I try a differenty mouse driver or
disabling the DOS mouse driver? TIA.
