Simple resolution for Resource Conflict

By Nancy in Common ErrorsDriver Error

If you suspect a resource conflict in your PC, you of course need to resolve this conflict.


This can be easy to do if you know where to start looking, or very hard if you do not.


There are some general steps that can be followed to fix this sort of problem. In very brief terms the steps are:


Determine what all the devices in the system are using for resources.


Identify the conflicting devices.


Change the resource settings on one or more of the devices so they are no longer conflicting.


Examples: "I installed an old video card in my PC so I could hook up a second monitor. After installing it, Device Manager showed that there was a resource conflict. I manually changed the IRQ for the PCI card and then it started working fine."
