You'll need to start the "BIOS Setup" and disable or reassign the integrated Com-2 port I/O port address.

Check your motherboard manual for instructions on how to start the "BIOS Setup" routine, and the specific manner of changing port assignments.

You can use the older serial mouse on Com-1, or you can install a PS/2 mouse to free up the first serial port.

It may be possible to reassign your modem's com port address, but it's my guess that the above would be less problematic for you in the long run.

If your modem is a Plug 'n Play device just relocate it to COM3: and use the system properties device manager to change its resources so that it uses an unassigned interrupt vector (IRQ) other than 4 (I usually use 10 because my sound card is extremely possessive of IRQ 5). This should take care of your problem without having to disable or reconfigure anything in your CMOS setup.

COM3/3F8 & INSTALLED A PCI MODEM.THE NEWER BOARD PERHAPS DOES NOT ACCEPT THE OLDER 16 BIT MODEM.IS THAT A LOGICAL EXPLANATION

If you used the same hard drive with the same OS. I would reboot in safe mode (press F8 while booting up) Go to device manager (start =>settings=>control panel=> system and delete any device that are not install (there will be old stuff from your other motherboard. Also make sure you delete the comm mouse and modems. Restart machine and re install the modem. make sure that you have the driver disk and win98 disk. If it not a PNP modem there might be jumpers on it or software to configure it. Check the modems web page or windrivers.com
