Question about Computers & Internet
Compaq Presario Notebook V5000
On boot up, it beeps twice and two error messages pop up stating:
Resource Conflict - PCI Network Controller in slot 03
Bus:06, Device:02, Function:00
Resource Conflict - PCI Network Controller in slot 04
Bus:06, Device:06, Function:00
Now I already know slot 03 is the wireless card and 04 is the ethernet card. I have tried a destructive recovery to no effect. I did a BIOS update and still doesnt work. When I removed the wireless card and started it up the slot 03 conflict was gone. It is out of warranty. Windows XP. Tried a computer repair shop and they said I needed a new motherboard.
I had this problem for almost a year. One day I decided to put it back t factory default, it work for a week and then the Error message pop again at boot. I installed windows 7 CR and after a week of working fine, same thing happen. I open my laptop, check everything, clean it, and nothing. Until I found the by pressing really hard on the slot where the conflict was, it work 9 out of 10 times I started my laptop. On my Acer the Slot 3 Conflict is where the memory card reader is, or atleast that is what I though. After taking my laptop to an IT Tech, he discovered that the Slot 3 was right next to the wireless network card, and by pressing the area reallu hard the computer will start 95% of the time. But when I say really hard, I mean really hard, as a matter of fact, while trying we even crack the bottom case.
The solution was one of two options:
1. Acer motherboard in certain models, it was defected, and it was known within the puclic, prompting the same Error Conflict that I have, so we would have to get a new Motherboard ($120) or
2. Take all the OS out of the computer, and Install an Linux OS like (Ubuntu-free) you might ask yourself why?
Because Ubuntu doesn't depend on the hardware to function. Windows does. Ubuntu is a self dependable OS, Unlike Windows.
#2 was my solution, it's been alamost 6 months and I never had the probelm again.

Your are dealing with an address conflict. Why don't you take the computer back in time to a period when it was working properly?
Start > Help & Support > Undo changes made to your computer
Select a date on which you know the computer was working. You will not lose any data, but programs that were installed after that date will have to be re-installed.

I was on this forum because I was having the same issue with a Toshiba A75 "Laptop", and I tried everything on here and on other forums and no luck. I actually just accessed the integrated wireless card panel from the bottom and removed it from its slot and disconnected the wireless wires connected and put it back on. So this has worked for me and my machine post perfectly now. Good luck to all and I hopefully this will be helpful too you.

You have a n IRQ conflict meaning you have a device that is trying to use an IRQ slot that its not meant to talk on. From the looks of it you have been in the bios already so go back in and set it to factory default.

If it just started doing this all of a sudden, then it is a good bet that *********** board is fried. If you just installed some memory or a communications card or new drive, then take it out and see if it still does it. If not, check the installation instructions to make sure it was put in right.
