hey carl - first thing - laptop or desk top - if desk top (tower) remove all slotted cards and boot system - when it boots completely to home screen. shut down and insert 1 card at a time until you recieve you nasty screen. or boot into safe mode f10 or12 get in and disable all your cards -windows system- control panel - then turn on one by one doing a reboot - when you do find the conflicting card you should be able to figure which card or cards they conflict to - you will have to change the resource allocations on probable 2 or 3 cards to allow all to work - there all lots of sites that will explain this better - hope this helped
Fully working Device will have no symbol on the respective device so as far as windows is concerned there is no conflict. However if the BIOS shows a Device Conflict Error with the PCI bus you will have a conflict in Windows.
A black exclamation point (!) on a yellow field indicates the device is in a problem state. Note that a device that is in a problem state can be functioning.
A red "X" indicates a disabled device. A disabled device is a device that is physically present in the computer and is consuming resources, but does not have a protected-mode driver loaded.
A blue "i" on a white field on a device resource in Computer properties indicates that the Use Automatic Settings feature is not selected for the device and that the resource was manually selected. Note that this does not indicate a problem or disabled state.
A green question mark "?" in Device Manager means that a compatible driver for this device is installed, indicating the possibility that all of the functionality may not be available. Note that this applies only to Windows Millennium Edition (Me).
NOTE: Some sound cards and video adapters do not report all of the resources they are using to Windows. This can cause Device Manager to show only one device in conflict, or no conflicts at all. This can be verified by disabling the sound card, or by using the standard VGA video driver to see if the conflict is resolved. Note that this is a known problem with S3 video adapters and 16-bit Sound Blaster sound cards, or those sound cards that are using Sound Blaster emulation for Sound Blaster compatibility
The Sims collection does have some compatability issues with vista but EA has worked on it and actually it should run fine.May be any running process is conflicting with the game or you may have to update your Display drivers.
Also try using the compatability mode.Just right click on the game *.exe and select properties.then select the compatability tab and check the box "run in compatability with Win Xp[sp2]".
In adition you can check for any available patches here.
i can advise you with this.
it may help if you disable the original keyboard, as you may have a device conflict between the 2. you can do this from within windows.
ensure your drivers are correctly installed, for the keyboard, and the motherboard. Go into My Computer/ Control Panel/System/Device Manager And see if you have any yellow exclamation Marks. this will determine that the Device is functioning correctly. And if not you can update the driver or find the conflicting device.
Finally ensure this is the first keyboard that the computer sees, adjustment in the bios configuration.
