I am running windows 95, and I recieve a "Device IRQ conflict" error every time I start my computer. This has been going on for quite a long time, although it used to not do this. I recently (today, to be exact) formatted or reformatted my computer, and I still get this same message. I'm not sure if it is causing problems or not, because there is always a problem with my computer. Is it possible it is a physical problem with my computer (I.E. something is wired wrong)? Any ideas are greatly aprecciated.

You might want to go to control panel
open up system applet, and look in
device manager. It should show which
item is in conflict. highlight and check it's
properties. Should be a conflict solver here.

I am not quite sure how to list my IRQs? I opened the device list, but it says there is nothing conflicting - this is why I am so puzzled.

Start button, run, then type msinfo32 and press ok.......go to hardware, IRQs, edit, select all, edit, copy and come back and paste.

****EDIT****
OOopps, nevermind, that's not going to work for you......just noticed you're running windows 95.

Take a look to see if there's anything trying to use the same IRQ in the device manager.....
