However if you wish to change this, I believe, if memory serves that you have to change it with the registry.
Be sure to watch out what you do, this is a tricky procedure, did it once months ago for fun.
HKEY LOCAL MACHINE / HARDWARE/ DEVICEMAP / SERIALCOMM
you should have in the right pane something written, usually the name of ur modem card interface. what I have is this:
BCM stands for broadcomm, which is the brand of my modem card.
in ur case it'd be something like
\Device\~modem brand and name~ COM1
change it to COM3
the computer should change it, if not tell me, I'll test it myself, I may have forgotten something.

Indeed that's how you'd change it... Never crossed my mind to go into the device manager, I instead went to the modem section of the control panel, which doesnt have anything there.. anyhoo thx for the trick gerryf

After reformattting, you still need to install them (for that matter, you must install the latest drivers for all of your hardware. Windows XP does nto come with every driver built in, and those that are there are often outdated
