I just recently started getting an IRQ conflict with my VT card. Doesn't matter what slot I put it in it comes up. updated drivers and do the job. What can I do? Not sure why the problem started no new hardware was added. (code 12)
Can't say I've hit the same problem. Where are you seeing this IRQ conflict alerted? Or is it just mentioned when you are in System Information? In which case, my experience with shared resources is that this isn't such a big deal and IRQ chains are almost something Windows 2000 onwards encourages.
If it is a problem, something in your BIOS settings (or CMOS data save area) may have altered or become reset to defaults.
So, am interested in where you are seeing this please, Waggs?
