    Default Win95 modem-mouse conflict

    I'm setting up a win 95 machine from scratch. It has an external KTX FM-56K-VSE modem and a serial mouse. the problem being that the moment the modem has established internet connection, the mouse ceases to work.

    This is irritating. The modem uses com1 and the mouse com2

    I was unable to find the correct drivers for the modem, and have it set up as a "standard modem 28K" with a maximum speed of 56K. which seems to work for getting it on the net.

    Hi Clueless,

    Have you tried these KTX FM-56K-VSE drivers? They might help.

    Hi Gorela,

    I did indeed try those "drivers", sadly they were no help at all.

    Just checked my old Win 95 computer, for the serial mouse it has the following drivers
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\msmouse.vxd v4.00.950
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\mouse.drv v 9.01.0.000
    Are yours same?
    Just checked COM 1, 2, 3. They are all serial drivers.

    Try changing the Com port that it the mouse is plugged into.. The Actualy Port Number itself in the Hardware properties...

    I know you can do it...
    I'd say that the modem's trying to use Com1 as well, so try switching that in the Hardware properties, or there may be a jumper on the actual modem itself which can be changed.

    Chill...
    No jumpers, this is an external modem

    The hole its plugged into on the back of the computer conects via a peice of ribbon directly to a plug on the mobo that is labelled "COM 1" the mouse hole conects via a peice of ribbon directly to a plug on the mobo that is labelled "COM 2"

    All poking around settings shows that modem is installed on COM 1 as well.

    I'm off to have breakfast.. will get back to this one shortly.

    BTW.. goldwave is great!

    Yeah, That's why it'd only kill the mouse when you try connecting to the net. Try doing a diagnostic query to the modem and the mouse will die as well!

    You should be able to simply specify what port the mouse is using in the Hardware manager :-)

    As already suggested check the IRQs for COM1 and COM2 in BIOS.
    COM1 should be 3F8, IRQ4; COM2 should be 2F8, IRQ3.

    Sounds like the Modem & Mouse have claimed the same IRQ and I/O address.

    Regretfully, I canít remember how to check this in Win95 but Iím sure someone else will.

    The usual problem was Com1 & Com3 trying to use IRQ4, which was often a default setting.

    The solution is to allocate a spare IRQ to the Modem and make sure it has a separate I/O address.
