QS6 serial connection problem

I'm having problems with this...

- Both serial ports on my computer fail to recognise my synth. I have tried changing the settings for both ports in BIOS, only to change them back to the original settings because nothing worked.

- I have tried the 2 different speed settings on the synth; this hasn't worked.

- My 8-DIN to DB9 cable is brand new so I don't think this could be the problem.

- The only thing I can think of is that I'm using the serial drivers for win95 but running win98.

- I'm getting no sound at all...only strange static through my synth speakers when I first startup my PC.

- Also, on occasions, when I check the device settings of the Alesis driver in Control Panel/Multimedia/Devices, the synth changes bank. I must point out this is a random occurance.

Any suggestions would be MUCH appreciated.
