Question:
How do I disable COM1 on a Packard Bell PC?



Replies:
Try to contact the Packard Bell home page http://www.packardbell.com Or during the initial boot up try pressing the F1, F10, or the del key and you might be able to access the BIOS/CMOS in there you will be able to disable the com ports. Just be-careful when changing settings in the BIOS because this is what your computer needs to boot up with.

Thanks for the question
