    I have a computer that has serial ports which thinks that something is using them. I have not used these ports since purchasing the computer over a year ago.

    I have a digit camera and electronic organzier. When connecting them to the computer I get an error messages that says the following:

    1. No com port find

    2. Port is in use.

    Could this be because I only have a dsl moden and not a regular modem also? I don't the computer to the place I purchased it (Microteck) and they couldn't figure it out.

    Can someone help me?

    When I have the devices connected to the computer and go into the contral panel, in the port box is says "auto.inf" it does not say Com 1 & Com 2.

    I would appreciate any help!

    Go into your BIOS. Are your COM ports set to auto ?
