CDROM isn't recognized. Has interrupt conflict with hard drive

Windows 98. Device manager won't let me change resource configuration to use a different interrupt to resolve the conflict.

    F8 didn't get me to SAFE MODE but CTRL did and I was able to go to Device Manager and disable the second IDE channel which apparently resolved the resource conflict with the first channel allowing the CDROM to work on reboot.

Once you login to the safe mode and try to resolve it .. i am sure your problem will be resolved in the safe mode ...

because safe mode loads will the minimal set of drivers it is usually used to resolve the hardware conflicts, graphics related problems ..

you can go to the safe mode by pressing the F8 key at the system boot then you must select safe mode and press enter on it .. after that you will be in safe mode after some seconds .. then you can try to resolve the conflict ..

any further problem you can leave me a new comment ...

Hi, I have a problem with my Acer Aspire 5732Z laptop. Upon boot up, I get a blue screen saying there is an error with my computer, and the following file name appears: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL Not...

It seems you have an IRQ conflict. You install a driver and it wants to use an IRQ which is already assigned to a different device. That's why you can start in safe mode because the drivers for your added devices are not loaded.

The computing phrase "interrupt request" (or IRQ) is used to refer to either the act of interrupting the bus lines used to signal an interrupt, or the interrupt input lines on a Programmable Interrupt Controller (PIC). The interrupt request level (IRQL) is the priority of an interrupt request.

In computing, an IRQ conflict is a once common hardware error, received when two devices were trying to use the same interrupt request (or IRQ) to signal an interrupt to the Programmable Interrupt Controller (PIC).

The PIC expects interrupt requests from only one device per line, thus more than one device sending IRQ signals along the same line will generally cause an IRQ conflict that can freeze a computer.

To view your current IRQ assignments you can open Device Manager. Click on START, click on CONTROL PANEL. Click on Performance and Maintenance. Click on System. Click on the Hardware tab. Click the DEVICE MANAGER button. Once you have Device Manager open, select VIEW from the tool-bar menu, and then click Resources by Type. Double click on Interrupt Request (IRQ). If you are experiencing problems with a newly installed/configured piece of hardware and the drivers are installed correctly, then check to see if it has its own IRQ channel.

To change an IRQ setting follow these steps:
-Right click on the device in the list (see above), and then select properties.
-Click the Resources tab.
-Remove the tick from the Use automatic settings option.
-Select a non-conflicting configuration from the pull down box.
-Click OK.

Laptop hasn't been used in a while. I turned it on and got an error. Resource Conflict - PCI Network Controller How do I fix this? Running Win98

  1. Go to Start » Settings » Control Panel to launch the Control Panel window, and then double-click on the System icon. In the System Properties window, click on the Device Manager tab at the top of the window.
  2. If the operating system has detected a resource conflict, it will indicate this with a special symbol (a black exclamation mark within a yellow circle) next to the name of the device with the resource conflict:
  3. Single-click on the device with the resource conflict to highlight it and then click on the Properties button at the bottom of the window. This will bring up the Properties window for your PCI Network Controller. Select the Resources tab. You should see a screen similar to the one below:
  4. Deselect the Use automatic settings checkbox, and single-click on the resource with the conflict to highlight it.
  5. You may need to change the entry in the Setting based on menu ring to a different basic configuration, in order to disable the use of certain resources. The basic configurations range from a "base I/O address only" setup to various combination's of base I/O address, IRQ, and DMA. (Note: some devices only have one basic configuration.)
  6. Click on the Change Setting... button to bring up the editing window for that resource. You will be able to cycle through the available resource settings for your system. If Windows 98/95 is aware of any devices that are already using that setting, you will be informed of this in the Conflict information area at the bottom of the resource editing window.

I have maxtor basic 500G ex works fine when I plug into old laptop with XP, but when I plug in to new laptop with Windows 7 it says I have to format drive..Why is this?

Try opening the device manager and changing device removal policy to "Better Performance" (remember to always safely remove the device afterwards or you'll likely lose data).

Also, verify that the partition type is recognized in Local Computer > Drive Management and the drive letter doesn't conflict with anything else.

Mouse not working..pls help

i guess it is due to conflicting Com ports resources. you can try the following to resolve the problem. i am assuming you have a serial mouse connected to com port

1. remove any devices marked under device manager with yellow exclamation mark or question mark. reboot the system

2. when the system has restarted let the windows install any new devices it has found. after that.... go to device manager right click on com port to which mouse is connected

a) click on port settings tab and click restore defaults.
b) see if windows is reporting any resource conflicts under resources tab.

do you have any other device that is attached to any other com port ? if yes it may be causing resource conflict problems. to solve that click set configuration manually and deselect automatic settings and select different configuration in "settings based on" . this should resolve resource conflicts if any.

I hope this helps solve your problem

No cdrom after installing windows 98

The problem is that the baseline W98SE does not recognize the drive ID as a valid drive. W98 knows nothing about DVD drives. You need to find the driver for the DVD. That driver will update the ID tables so that the OS will recognize the ID. WIthout that driver, you are out of luck.

Keep us posted,
