[SOLVED] New video card no input/output resources
I am trying to replace a Gforce2 video card with a Gforce FX 5200 with 256m o ddr memory. When I install the new card I get a conflick message saying that I need to remove another piece of hardware to free up the resources needed. It will not tell what hardware is in conflict.

Howdy cowlin...

The only thing I can think of at the moment is make sure that "Plug and Play OS" is enabled in the BIOS, this way the BIOS won't try to assign an IRQ to the devices...

Thanks for the 2 cents
I checked the BIOS and did not find any listing for Plug n Play. Did find AGP off does that need to be on? It is an AGP card.

AGP question
I checked the motherboard on my computer and it says AGP data rate 2x. My new cideo card says RGP data rate 4x. Is this my problem and if so is there any solutions other than new motherboard. I don't think the video card I need that supports shadeing will come in a 2x data rate.

Get a new mobo and reinstall windows :P

seriously tho, go to the device manager and find your old card, remove it, and reboot. should work then.

Actually...no it does not need to be on, if it is on ( depending on the motherboard ) it will only see the onboard video, it's strange that there aren't any listings for PNP ( usually there is a listing for PNP OS, or Plug an Play OS )...

Question think I found the conflict
Video card uses memory at

D0000000 - DFFFFFFF
F0000000 - F0FFFFFF

VIA Tech CPU to AGP Controller

000A0000 - 000BFFFF
D8000000 - E7FFFFFF
E8000000 - EFFFFFFF
F0000000 - F1FFFFFF

These seem to overlap.
Is there any way to change the memory area used by VIA Tech CPU to AGP Controller?
