Static Device Resource Conflict

By dmcelyea ·
Recently I acquired a few IBM AS400 HSwappable SCSI drives. I had on hand an Adaptec SCSI card. I had no problem getting one of the drives to work in Win95. The second that I connected Drive 1 I began receiving a message at Bootup (Static Device Resource Conflict). By removing the SCSI Drives and the SCSI card from the system I was able to get rid of the Conflict for a short time. Every time I tried to start from the beginning I received this message. I gave up on the SCSI install and went back to strictly IDE drives. The message (Static Device Resource Conflict) is still on the machine. I removed all the hadware from the system and still get the message. I reset the bios to the default settings, still the same problem. The only thing that was not disconnected was the onboard video. The machine is a Packard Bell P166. AMI bios which I found out that you need to know the Mainboard MFG to get a bios upgrade. I hope I have explained the problem sufficiently if not will try better next time.

Thanks in advance

Boot into safe mode, (press F5 while system is starting). Then go into Start- Settings- Control Panel- System- Device Manager. If the SCSI controller is still listed, select it and then remove it. (There is a bug in Windows that requires you view this in safe mode, it will not show up in standard mode). Then click on Computer and then Properties. Select the view by IRQ button and then look to see if multiple devices are using an interupt. If multiple devices are using an interupt, it will usually show up with a yellow or red circle. After seeing what is using the interupts you will need to determine how to move devices to other interupts so that they are not sharing an interupt.

Let me know what you find when you post your response tothis question.

When I put the two original IDE drives back in the computer I was receiving the same error. Static Device Resource conflict. I knew I had removed the SCSI card and also removed it from the System Settings. When I booted up the machine with the two IDE drives I went into the system settings and the SCSI device was still in there. I removed it again and the problem went away.
Thanks for the advice.
Also I tried another harddrive with Windows Nt 4.0 on it. That error message stayed until I put the two original drives back in and removed the device from the system.

Thanks again and have a great day.
