com port problem nt server

this is directly from technet:To clear these messages from Event Viewer, do one of the following:

- Use the Advanced Settings dialog box to change the I/O, IRQ, or the COM Port
Number setting

-or-

- Delete the appropriate entry from the Windows NT Registry using Registry
Editor.

Using the Advanced Settings dialog box clears the error messages in many cases,
but in two cases you need to delete certain entries in the Registry:

- If you want to change the settings for a COM port already detected at Setup
by NTDETECT.

-or-

- If the COM port in question doesn't physically exist on the system.

In the first case, the Advanced Settings option will not be available. In the
second case, no facility exists in the Ports dialog box to delete the entry for
the non-existent COM port.

WARNING: Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious, system-wide
problems that may require you to reinstall Windows NT to correct them. Microsoft
cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the use of Registry Editor can
be solved. Use this tool at you own risk.

To delete the false entry from the Registry, use the Registry Editor
(REGEDT32.EXE) to find the following key:

\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet
\Services\Serial\Parameters

The Parameters key lists one or more subkeys listed as Serial10000, Serial10001,
and so on. Check the DosDevice value to find which subkey represents the
non-existent COM port. Then, highlight the subkey for the erroneous serial port
and choose Delete from the Edit menu.
