Modem port missing

By DanielLee ·

I just ran F disk on an AcerPower 4100 and installed Win 98 SE version 98 4.10.2222 A.

I am having trouble installing an Intel MD5628D-L-A PCI modem. The modem is installed on Com 4 but the computer does not recognize it and keeps trying to reinstall to Com 2.

When I go to Control Panel/ Modem/ Intel Ham Data Fax Voice/ Properties/ General/ the place where the Port should be listed there is a black box with a drop down box that has Com 1 and Com 2. (This is the place Windows Help tells me I should go to change the modem port)

How do I get the computer to recognize Com 4?

Another question: When you have a computer like the Acer 4100 or a computer like a Compaq that has its own programs added onto a Operating system is it possible to Fdisk the hard drive and install Windows 98 SE without all the programs that the computer manufacture added?

Any assistance appreciated.
