Swapping COM ports

By Acqanal ·
Is it possible to exchange the com ports around on a PC? For example, make Com1 become Com2, and Com2 become Com1?
Why you ask? I plugged the serial cable from my device to the 9-pin Com1 connector on my PC and configured my device to Com1. Nothing happened. I moved the serial cable to com2 connector on the PC and voila it worked. I know its not the device, because I tried it on another PC and the Com ports matched.

You may have some luck looking in the Hardware Settings in the BIOS.

Just remember to save any changes as you Exit the BIOS though or the changes will not stick.
