I am running Windows 98. I have my modem on COM3. This shares an interrupt with COM1 and may therefore cause problems with your mouse driver. If your modem is PNP, you should be able to move it to COM4.
If this is not possible, you have several options:
1/ Get a new modem. Either internal or a USB external modem.
2/ Get a USB MIDI box with high speed serial connects on it. This is the coolest option, especially if you can get a box with built in sync. The timestamping on PC midi can be rather bad, since interrupt response times can be traded for performance without causing the average user any trouble - but not so for MIDI.
However, the only unit I know of that does this requires special software and only works on a Mac.
3/ If your computer has a ps/2 mouse port, get a ps/2 compatible mouse (this is what I do; the mouse is on the PS/2 port, the QS8 is on COM2, the modem is on COM3. This works for me)
: Anyone can help me solve this?
