Windows does not recognize my mouse.
I have removed it in Device Mgr.. (Yellow
exclamation mark) and reinstalled it.
its a Logitec, serial. I have made sure the serial ports are enabled in cmos.... All com ports are working fine according to Device manager... This problem started when I went in
and disabled com 1 in device mgr.. my modem was on
com 3 and windows would not auto detect. When I
diable com 1.. (mouse ) Windows autodetected my
modem.. however.. now my mouse will not work no
matter what I have tried... as I said... I reenabled all
com ports.. even took the internal modem out to try
and work this "bear dog.... any suggestions

Hi shilo999

Com1 and Com3 use the same interupt so that probably caused the original problem. I suggest that you go in the BIOS setup and make sure com1 is enabled and com2 is disabled. Then boot up in safe mode, remove the mouse there and all the com ports. Reboot and windows may find your serial mouse again. Then when you reinstall the modem make sure that it is on com2. (Don't enable motherboards com2)

Ok
Are you running windows 98?

If so boot up with your windows boot disk then enter
SCANREG /RESTORE

You should get a listing of registry backups.
Pick one that is just before your problem started.

(You can also shut down to msdos on your windows system and type the command from there)
