My thinkpad g40 has the following on my screen "resource conflict pci net controller in slot 01 bus :02,device:02,function:00 " how do i correct this?

Dear Friend,

This type of message is commonly associated with wireless or PCI card failures. I strongly suggest you to either update your BIOS (if you can) or disable this devises.

Another way to isolate the problem is to get an external wireless card or PCI network card.

I have a T40 IBM that just got the 1802 error. downloaded a bootable fix that I made to a CD. Set both startup and network to look for the CD drive first. Cannot get past the double beep on the POST test...


To correct this issue, you will need to remove the PCI wireless card from your laptop or disable the mini PCI settings in the BIOS menu.

On IBM's, the Mini PCI card slot is usually at the back of computer.

After removing card or disabling the
mini PCI settings in the BIOS menu, boot your computer. Make sure to update your BIOS. The new BIOS version can be downloaded from the manufacturer's website.

This issue has been corrected in the latests BIOS updates released.

After updating the BIOS, you can reseat the PCI Wireless card or enable the mini PCI settings in the BIOS menu.

Note that once you have removed the wireless card, you will not have wireless connection until you update the bios and replace it.

Hope this helps.

Error Message: 104-Unsupported wireless network device detected. System Halted. Remove device and restart.


I think you can try this steps and hope it will help you.
Try to reseat the Wireless Card in your machine.

You will need the following tools to complete the removal and replacement procedures:
-Magnetic screwdriver
-Phillips P0 screwdriver
-5.0-mm socket for system board screwlocks
-Flat-bladed screwdriver
-Tool kit-includes

Turn the machine upsidedown

Remove the battery.

Wireless Card Removal

1. Loosen the PM2.0×5.0 screw 1 that secures the Mini PCI
compartment cover to the computer.
2. Lift the rear edge of the Mini PCI compartment cover 2, and
then swing it forward.
3. Remove the Mini PCI compartment cover.

4. Disconnect the wireless antenna cables 1 from the Mini PCI
communications card.
5. Spread the two retaining tabs 2 that secure the Mini PCI
communications card to the communications compartment
socket. (The board rises up).
6. Remove the wireless communications card 3 by pulling the
board away from the socket at a 45-degree angle.
**Reverse the above procedure to install a Mini PCI
communications card.

If happens that it does not work, I think you can just reinstall OS just to make sure if its Hardware or Software problem.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.

IBM R40 2722 1802 Error Message

This is due to the fact that IBM laptops have a list of accepted devices, and the pci card is not recognised in the list. On IBM - Amilo, Mini PCI card slot is usually at the back of computer. Locate and remove Mini PCI wireless card, you will not have integrated wireless after this.
Other solution is to find the option to disable mini PCI in bios settings.
Here is how mini pci wireless card looks like:

Instaling a wireless pci card

First, as this is a type 3 mini pci slot that has your modem installed need to know if under or near the pci modem there are 2 wires with micro mini attach points. these would be the wires to attach the antenna to the wireless card. If there are no wires, then you will have to purchase the antennas as well. Normally these wires run up under the back side of the LCD Bezel.

Sounding complicated yet? Have you considered a USB wireless adapter from,,,,or e-bay, not to mention local stores.
