Hi,

Normally conflicts would be with the IRQs assigned to a device. Some methods of resolving conflicts are:
1. relocating the device to another slot;
2. manually configuring the IRQs in the CMOS/BIOS setup;
3. manually configuring the IRQs in Device Manager.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

No pictures or sound


I take it you mean, no video or audio. First the obvious; check all external connections, start pc and go to setup (F2), check to see if the correct video adapter is selected - if you're using a video card make it's not set to onboard video and vice-versa. check other devices making sure the are no IRQ, or address conflicts. If there is no video and you can't go into setup then you're gonna have to check under the hood and make sure of connections, that all cards and ram are seated properly, and power supply is functioning within the proper parameters.

In safemode vista cannot get out


Hello,
Your problem may be a conflict with a device. Windows shows conflicts by highlighting a device in yellow or red in the "Device Manager". By using the Windows Device Manager, you can usually spot the conflicts quickly. Go to Control Panel, click "Sysytem and Security" and under "Security you'll see "Device manager". Click Device Manager and look for device conflicts. Again, they will be highlighted in yellow or red.
I hope this helps.

Usb not found aspire t160


Hi,

i,d check the bios setup. to ensure that USB devices are enabled.
Or that there are no conflicting devices:- My Computer/Control Panel/System/Device Manager.
Also some motherboards, have jumpers to set the USB ports on/off.
Try using a different port if you have 1 available, or purchase an individual PCI-Card with USB Ports On.

Im try to set up an wireless connection but it always seams to have a problem, one of them is that the sistem says that i have an ip comflict! what can i do?


If your getting that message on your computer that means the IP address that your computer acquied from your serverrouter has a duplicate in the network. The very first thing that you need to check is whethere your computer has a an IP address that is manually assigned to it, to check this just go to Network Connections under Control Panel(assuming your computer runs on Windows XP). Right click on the Wireless Connection icon and go to properties, under Local Area Network Properties you will find several check marks under This device uses the following; Client for Microsoft, File and Printer Sharing, QoS Packet Scheduler etc... Look for and highlight Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) and click Properties, under the TCP/IP Properties you have 2 option for both IP and DNS server. Make sure both is set to obtain. If your still getting the same message Right click on Wireless Connection and choose repair so tha your router/server will provide a new unique IP address, wel that will usually resolve the IP address conflict on your computer.

Hot keys are not working on my Asus laptop


http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/wireless.mspx

This is because of
The Human Interface Device (HID) is not configured to wake the computer when you press a key on the keyboard or mouse.

RESOLUTION

Use Device Manager to troubleshoot possible hardware configuration problems on your computer
In Device Manager, look for marked problems with devices. If there is a problem with a device, it is listed in the hardware tree under Computer.

Additionally, the problem device has a symbol that indicates the type of problem, for example 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 function.

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.

At the top of the property sheet, there is a description of the device. When you click the Resource tab, the window in the middle of the tab indicates which resource types are available for the selected device.

The list box at the bottom contains a Conflicting Device list. This list indicates a conflict with an error code. If any devices are listed as having a conflict, disable the devices in Device Manager. To do so, follow these steps:
1. Double-click the branch that contains the device that you want to disable, click the device, and then click Properties.
2. On the General tab, click to select the Disable In This Hardware Profile check box, and then click OK.
3. Restart your computer

If no devices are listed as having a conflict, follow these steps to disable devices in Device Manager:
1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2. On the Hardware tab, double-click System, and then click Device Manager.
3. On the Device Manager tab, disable all devices under the following branches:
• Display adapters
• Floppy disk controllers
• Hard disk controllers
• Keyboard
• Mouse
• Network adapters
• Ports
• PCMCIA socket
• SCSI controllers
• Sound, video, and game controllers

To disable a device in Device Manager, follow these steps:
a. Double-click the branch that contains the device that you want to disable, click the device, and then click Properties.
b. On the General tab, click to select the Disable In This Hardware Profile check box , and then click OK.
c. Restart your computer.
4. If the problem is resolved, enable the devices that you disabled in step 3, and then verify that no devices are conflicting.

Note Enable devices in the following order:
• COM ports
• Hard disk controllers
• Floppy disk controllers
• Other devices
To enable a device and look for possible conflicts, follow these steps:
a. Double-click the branch that contains the device that you want to enable, click the device, and then click Properties.
b. On the General tab, click to clear the Disable In This Hardware Profile check box.
c. Click the Resources tab, and then verify that there are no conflicts listed under the Conflicting Device List.

Note that the Resources tab does not appear for each device.
d. Click OK, and then restart your computer.
If this resolves the issue, contact the manufacturer to update the device driver. for the keyboard
