Port won't close after use

By smundine ·
I am running Windows 98 on a PIII 650Mhz system. I have a USRobotics v90 internal modem. I have to delete the modem everytime before I shut down so that the system will reconfigure it upon startup. If I use the modem then disconnect then try to connect again I will get an error message 630. When I run diagnostics then on modem it says that it can't open port or port is already open. I show an ACPI controller using IRQ9 which is the same interrupt the system assigns to my modem when I startup. If I try to change the interrupt to IRQ3 or 4 it says it is in use by com1 and com2. If I try to use Com1 thru 4 it tells me that they are in use.

To smundine,
Its not that i need your 1000 points but you actually made me reopen an old book. Error 630 means (PC Error Codes)"index stuck high;drive a" and its listed under the heading Floppy Drive/Controller. So as i had said on my first response, you definitely have an interrupt error against the controller which is most likely the programmble interrupt controller or the floppy controller, whichever which. I am using a QUE Book (Upgrading and Repairing PC) in case you want to cross refer about it.

When you remove the modem and associated entries (i.e. Wave device for voice modems in sound, game and video controllers), do it in safe mode. there could be multiple entries of those devices interferring with one another.

hope this helps...
