Eliminating Resource Conflicts

Devices within the computer may require dedicated memory spaces, interrupt levels, or DMA channels, all of which must be allocated during installation of the devices. Because a device may be installed at a different time, it is possible that the same resource is assigned to two or more devices.

Resource conflicts can result in disorderly or erratic computer operation or failure of the computer to operate at all. If you suspect that resource conflicts might exist, check the computer and reassign the resources as necessary.

For more information about resolving conflicts, see Chapter 3, "Troubleshooting Your Computer," in the Reference and Troubleshooting Guide.
