Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
System Bios Version V2.70
Bus: 06, Device: 01, Function: 00
Resource Conflict - PCI Network Controller in Slot 02
Bus: 06, Device: 02, Function: 00
Resource Conflict - PCI in Slot 03
Bus: 06, Device: 04, Function: 01
Resource Conflict - PCI in Slot 03
Bus: 06, Device: 04, Function: 02
Resource Conflict - PCI in Slot 03
Bus: 06, Device: 04, Function: 03
Try pressing F2 and look in the bios for a setting that says "Load Bios defaults". If you have any PCMCI cards inserted please remove them first and try a re-boot.
Have you added any new components on the PCI bus? If you have you need to make sure that the BIOS is allowed to reconfigure the interrupts. The device in slot 03 is conflicting with the integrated network controller hosted on the PCI bus. Remove the device in slot 3 and all should be well.
Most BIOS manufacturers allow the PC/Laptop to manage it's own interrupts, so ensure the device you've inserted allows for this. If it uses fixed interrupts this might be your problem.
A good manual should details the BIOS setting you can adjust in order to get the PCI controller happy again and allow the machine to POST correctly.

This will not solve your problem, but it will allow you to start and use your computer. 1. Start your computer. 2. when it comes up with the option to "press F1 to continue, press F1 and start pressing the space bar rapidly. This will bring you to another screen and "Windows Vista" should be highlighted. 3. Press F8 for advanced options. 4. Scroll down to "Last known good configuration". This should get you going. Best of luck. Please post anything else you find out about this problem. Thanks

Acer Aspire 5100, 5 years old.
Error disappeared after theese actions:
1) Took out
wireless lan card
also unplugged screen connertor from motherboard and reconected it
took out keyboard , cleaned it and put it back
took out Ram, cleaned contacts, put it back
so without cd rom , hdd, wireless chip
STILL GoT ERROR
2) Put laptop back together as it was in beginning
3) Put UBUNTU STUDIO 11.10 install cd and rebooted
chose an option [memory test] (or scan memory??)
after 18 minutes memory was tested 3 times without errors
pressed [Esc] to reboot
4) while powering up - opened cd rom , then held power button 3 seconds to shut down (I wanted to put in different linux live cd)
5) CD ROM is OPEN/EJECTED. i press power button , laptop boots WITHOUT beeps or errors. even windows loads to login screen!!!
6) Now i try again from loginscreen. 1. close empty cd-rom 2. reboot 3. problem has dissappeared in mysterious way.
I ran memory test and let cd-rom stay open while booting up. after that, laptop runs normally with closed cd rom.
I hope it stays this way.

Before this problem occurs, even DVD-RW worked alternately. The solution was to slightly deform the base of the laptop, reboot and everything was ok. Probably the cause of this is due to oxidation of the contacts between devices (DVD-RW and network card) and motherboards. We should disassemble and clean the contacts. The main problem is: who reassembles all the disassembled?

Sorry guys, none of the above(or below) have worked for me. firstly, there is no reset bios option on this laptop. A bios update is almost impossible condidering the loss of response to the keyboard. Its the bloody chipset that frakked. Acer messed this one up BIG time in its design, i personally feel they should refund anyone that bought this laptop, thats about the only solution(considering i sent it once for repairs, recieved it back with a replaced motherboard, and six months down the line(after the guarantee expired) the thing died again, in exactlky the same way)

Hey guys. I had this same problem on my Acer aspire 5100. But i Managed to >>>>SOLVE IT<<<<< sort of.
I did what oscaralegria
Basically I decided to install a completely different operating system. I Installed LINUX's " gOS ". And this worked. (on top of that its free so there was nothing to lose)
Unfortunatly the problem still persists, BUT the operating system loads up and I am able to go on e.g. the internet and write word documents etc etc (something which windows did not allow me to do, it wouldnt even load up)
(basically when the laptop starts it gives the "pci conflicit" prompt, then after pressing F1 or continue the operating system loads up and runs smoothley).
Anyway If you have nothing to loose, and dont want to waste the laptop by chucking it in the bin, or getting it repaired I would consider installing a Linux based Os. It worked for me.
The only trouble I have now is ajusting to the new OS. But yeah (y)
If you have nothing to lose give it a try.
If you unsure how to install a new OS then you will have to do some research or youtube it. But it is worth it.

I have a solution. the only solution that i found was to install Ubuntu, with this operative system the machine works perfectly. i have been for a long time try to find a solution and this is the only one that works. the problem persist but you can use your computer with a good system operative. in my opinion the problem is the operative system windows xp, because this SO can't to jump the problem like Linux Ubuntu. good look. how i say the problem persist but the computer works, i have a acer 5100.
sorry my englis is not very goog i'm Colombian.

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.

The BIOS might have gotten corrupted. Try flashing and reinstalling it even if same version as already installed.
Worked for be.

I have a 3102wlmi with a 5100 mb after my 1st mb took a dump on me, now i have the same problem, im running linux ubuntu since xp died on me with bsod, freezing and lan cable unplugged when it wasnt (got up to 6x a day!) now i have this problem however if i restart it a few times it goes away the pci conflict error is random on my computer though i tried moving around the pci boot order in the bios, f12>bios>startup>pci moved to slot 3

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.

I would firstly reboot and if that doesn't clear the error run www.iobit.com asc.setup utility to remove crosslinked files and sort out a crosslinked registry. Failing that remove the driver from the Control Panel and let the OS set up a fresh driver. Make sure the driver is the correct one!
