I/o Error 2f8

If that works, when Windows restarts, use Modems in Control Panel to ensure the modem is set to the right port (whichever it is physically connected to if it's an external modem, or whichever it is set to if it's internal). The computer only gets as far as the boot up screen and will not go any further. Has anyone ever run into this problem? If possible can you take me step by step to fix the problem.

It looks like you have a non PnP modem that uses COM2. Click Here to join Tek-Tips and talk with other members!

PS/2 is on both of them. now I know where we are. 1) you need to get a PS/2 to Serial adapter for the mouse unless your motherboard has a ps/2 connector for it to plug into(which I will almost guarantee you it doesnt) or buy a serial mouse. 2) I have had a LOT of problems with the AT adapters.
