You have a interrupt conflict. Check /proc/interrupts. IRQ3 is for com1
and IRQ4 is for COM2 (unless you changed that). There shouldn't be other
hardware using these IRQs.

AFAIK you can't do IRQ sharing for the commports in Linux, so if have some
hardware using com1 and com3, you have to assign different irqs to them.
