ACPI IRQ Holder for PCI IRQ Steering"

A possible solution to this problem would be to reboot your computer in safe mode and remove all your ACPI IRQ holders for PCI IRQ Steering under the system devices tab in Device Manager. These will renumerate upon reboot to normal windows mode. Of course in the process of doing this make sure you have uninstalled any driver related information for your new USB card. Hopefully this will solve your problem, but if you continue to have resource conflicts you may have to juggle your other PCI devices. As always a good place to look for more information is the manufacturers web site.
