Which COM port is it on? COM 2 is IRQ 3.
Check Device Manager and see what it says. If you have a video card and modem on IRQ 3 it's likely to cause a conflict, something looks weird here...While in Device Manager highlight Computer and click Properties, that should give you a list of IRQ's in use. See what it says too.
Post the list here and let us see what it looks like, and maybe we can figure all this out...
