An “Error allocating Mem Bar for PCI device” suggests that a card located in one of your PCI slots has a possible problem. Try removing the card, (or cards-one at a time) to eliminate the error. Here’s a link showing location of PCI slots: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim3000/en/SM/techov.htm#wp1061217

You might have another part that has gone bad. Check the RAM and see if it gives you any problems.

There is a program call mem test that you can burn to a CD and test your memory. But if your no longer able to get to the bios:
you def had a hardware problem.

On booting up my Dell 5100 an error message comes up as follows: Error allocating I/O bar for PCI device. The computers locks up at the XP startup page


The computer needs the PCI slots to be enabled as they are used in communication from processor to most periferals.
It sounds like the mother board drivers are not installed or have corrupted some how.
Run the motherboard driver disk and reinstall the drivers. They can be downloaded from the mother board manufacturers web site.
You may need to burn them to a cd with a bootable system in dos, to run them.
Hope that helps.

Hi I am receving error in creations company in tally error in tdl insufficient height to allocate


on any pc if you get error "insufficient height to allocate".. then just set the dpi of your pc/laptop to 100%, (you can adjust dpi from display settings) and try to use tally, this might solve ur problem.
if the above doesn't solve ur problem, then go to screen resolution setting and select 800 x 600 resolution. this might solve ur problem to most extent.
if still u are facing the prob then go to display setting of windows and reduce the font size of menu, message box, active title bar, non-active title bar and etc... reduce fonts of all..

Remove the GeForce card.
Enable the onboard video as "primary".
Start Windows.
Within Device Manager, remove the driver for the GeForce adapter.
Download the latest software software for the GeForce video-card,
and install it.
Shutdown.
Insert the GeForce card, and leave the onboard video as "Primary".
Start Windows.
It should treat the GeForce card as an "additional" video-adapter,
as if you had two monitors, side-by-side.
If it works in this configuration, shutdown.
Set the GeForce card to "primary" and restart.
If it works in this configuration, shutdown.
Set the onboard video to "disabled".
Restart.

Pci error


I would suggest that you cancel the device installation, download the drivers for various components (Sound, Chipset, Network etc.) from the HP website. Install those drivers and restart. Check if that new device found message comes again and let me know.
Hope it helps.
Love.
