    Resolving Device Conflicts 3/3/2004  
Plug-N-Play was supposed to solve the problem of driver conflicts.
Windows is supposed to look at everything in your computer, see where
there is room to put the new device, and put it there. This works
pretty good most of the time, but sometimes Windows gets confused and
doesn't put the device where it's supposed to go.

  Resolving Device Conflicts

Plug-N-Play was supposed to solve the problem of driver conflicts.
Windows is supposed to look at everything in your computer, see where
there is room to put the new device, and put it there. This works
pretty good most of the time, but sometimes Windows gets confused and
doesn't put the device where it's supposed to go. Imagine that you had a lamp plugged into a socket in the wall, and
you then wanted to plug another lamp into that same socket. You
can't do it, can you? You have to unplug one of them to get the
other one in. It works the same way with a computer. You can't have
to devices using the same space, but sometimes Windows tries to do
that anyway, and it causes what you call a "conflict". Sometimes
this causes one device to stop working while the other one keeps
working fine, but sometimes it stops them both from working.

To resolve a device conflict, do the following:
- Right-click on 'My Computer' on your desktop and choose
'Properties'.
- A window will appear that says 'System Properties.' Click on
the tab at the top of the window that says 'Device Manager.'
- If there is a conflict, a yellow exclamation point (!) will
appear next to the device name.
- Single-click on the driver that has the conflict (if there is
more than one, click on the first one), and then click on the
button that says 'Properties'.
- A window will appear that has the name of the device on it.
Click on the 'Resources' tab at the top of the window.
- Towards the bottom of the window you will see a box that is
labeled 'Conflicting device list'. This will tell you which
device is conflicting with the one you are looking at.
- To solve the problem, click on the box next to 'Use automatic
settings' so that there is not a check in the box.
- Click on the box next to 'Setting based on' and select each
of the configurations in the list until the 'Conflicting
device list' box says 'No conflicts'. Once it says that,
click 'OK'.
- Once you're back at the 'System Properties' window, click
'OK'. You will probably be asked to restart your computer.
Do so.

Repeat those steps for each device that has a yellow exclamation
point (!) next to it. That should remove any problems with
conflicts.
