PCI conflict??

By lars ·
During the boot up, one of my workstations stops with an error message about about PCI in slot one. Seems to be related to the audio since the user lost audio when this started. The options given are F1 which takes me to the BIOS, or F2 which takes me to the desktop, but like I say, the audio doesn't work and programs stall before opening. Anyone else run into this?

Hi it's seems like you probably have an Irq conflict, that is why your sound stopped working. Also your first PcI slot is reserved meaning that it has a set irq already. If you have an extra pci slot available use that, if that doesn't help change to a card that has a different irq assigned to itself. Hope that helps.

Go into the device manager and remove the PCI card that is causing the conflict. Reboot the machine, windows should automatically choose the IRQ and load the driver for you, if the drivers have been installed. After you reboot if you get the same problem go into the properties of the card in Device Manager and select choose configurations automatically and reboot.

Which brand is your PC?, some pcs have their sound card on board, is that your case. This is not a Windows problem, this is an IRQ conflict, you have another device installed such as Network Card, SCSI card or something else installed which is usingthe same IRQ address as you sound card. Please provide me with that information and I'll help you to reconfigure the correct IRQ address.
Please also tell me all the hardware (other devices) you've installed on your pc.
Please e-mail me back with the info.

If the sound is onboard. It might have a jumper setting that needs to be switch in order to disable the on board sound.
