Hi, I posted here last time about a problem with my modem, and after that I went into sys. info. and found these conflicts (exactly listed like in the system information):

IRQ 10 S3 Inc. ViRGE GX2
IRQ 10 IRQ Holder for PCI Steering
IRQ 10 IRQ Holder for PCI Steering
IRQ 11 Zoom 56K PCI Faxmodem
IRQ 11 Intel 82371AB/EB PCI to USB Universal Host Controller
IRQ 11 IRQ Holder for PCI Steering
IRQ 14 Primary IDE controller (dual fifo)
IRQ 14 Intel 82371AB/EB PCI Bus Master IDE Controller
IRQ 15 Secondary IDE controller (dual fifo)
IRQ 15 Intel 82371AB/EB PCI Bus Master IDE Controller

And IRQ 9 is the only free IRQ in my comp.

I was hoping this would be the cause of all the problems in my system, If anyone could help me solve these problems, I will be very greatful.

Thanks you.

That looks more like sharing rather than conflicts. The only one I see that maybe a problem is irq 11 with usb controller and modem.

You could try putting your modem in a different pci slot

There are 4 PCI slots in my computer, I tried changing it from the second one to the first, but that did nothing. Is there anyway I can get the modem to use IRQ 9? since that is the only free IRQ.

You can go into device manager, highlight your modem, then click on properties. When the properties on your modem come up, click on the resources tab. Uncheck the box that says "Use Automatic Settings", then highlight the interrupt request in the box below, click on change setting, and set it from there.
