    My Problem:

    I disabled the communication port from the hardware profile, and then i think i removed it! Now how do i get the communication port back? i do have modem installed "INSIDE" my computer, so when i try to install the modem on my compuer, there's only one port to choose from: Printer Port (LPT1). There's no COM PORT to select from... i'm running windows me, can you please help me get my communication port back in the hardware profile, so the next time when i try to install my modem, i'll have a port to choose from...
    i tried to add new hardware, it just cant recognize it!, when i tried to installed the modem, there was only one port to choose from and that's the Printer's LTP1 port, there no COM ports to choose from!
    i'm running windows me
    Please some one help!
    thanks...

    PC's generally come with two serial ports : COM1 and COM2.

    External modems connect to one of these ports.

    Internal modems generally add an additional COM port. They do not use the standard COM1 and COM2 ports in your PC.

    This could be your problem. If your internal modem is set to operate on COM1 or COM2, it could interfere with with the standard COM1 and COM2 in your PC.
