  Forgive me if this is too basic,  but....You may not have shut off 
the Plug in play on the two ports in question.

Go to Control Panel>System>Device Manager and double click the COM 
port you want to adjust. You will have to do both. Then select the 
Resources Tab and uncheck the box marked Use Automatic Settings. 
Double click the Interupt Request to bring up the box that will let 
you adjust the IRQ setting. The box below the setting will tell you 
if there is a conflict as you change them. 

Whether or not it says there is one, do not set it to what it 
currently is since there is obviously some sort of problem. You may 
have to play around a little, rebooting each time, but this should do 
it. I had similar problems.

Ergonomia exclusive of diversion renders John a
bebetudinous progeny.
