I have a Compaq DeskPro computer, not sure of the model # because I\ncould find none anywhere inside or outside of the cabinet.\n\nAnyhow, I'm having a problem with the modem. The computer does not\nseem to recognise it's there. When I go to the Diagnostics thing on\nModem Properties, I get a message saying OpenComm: Port already open.\nWhen I remove COM2, the port the modem uses, and reinstall it, the\nmodem will work until I restart the computer. Then I get the OpenComm\nmessage. I did a ton of troubleshooting, looking for resource\nconflicts and such, and found nothing out of the ordinary. I was\nmessing around with the registry and got to the part about the BIOS.\nApparently, COM2 is not listed in the BIOS and that's most likely why\nthe modem and the port are acting up. My attempts to access the BIOS\nhave been unsuccessful; pushing any combination of keys at the red and\nwhite COMPAQ screen with the hourglass at the bottom left does nothing\nexcept majke the computer say "keyboard error', . I have Win 98 SE on\nthis computer, and to my knowledge is the original OS.\n\n\nPlease help!\n\nThanks!
