    Hi;

    Installed new Netgear FA-312 PnP Nic in a Dell Dimension as part of a DSL connection. After physical installation of the card, PC booted-up and following error message received...."RESOURCE CONFLICT PCI NETWORK CONTROLLER".....including the....."BUS:00....DEVICE:0E....FUNCTION:00".

    Went ahead and entered sytem to desktop. PnP DID recognize the card but I elected not to do installation given error message received @ boot-up. Went into "System Information" to "conflicts" and "Problem Devices". The same conflict was noted as follows...."Device - IRQ HOLDER FOR PCI STEERING...
    PNP DEVICE - PCI\IRQ HOLDER\61....ERROR CODE - 22"....

    I've never had an occasion to correct a problem in this area and I'm totally out of my element here and don't have a clue what to do- would appreciate any and all help!

    Many thanks in advance-
    Webz

    The first thing to do is to try the card in another PCI slot.

    It might also be worthwhile to see if you might already have a Network card integrated into the motherboard, some Dimension's have one in which case you do not need the Netgear card.

    triple6...I feel pretty thick- you're right- never thought to check in there was a card "on-board", but then wouldnt there still have to be a connection point on the chasis somewhere and I cant seem to find one- didnt think about using another slot, either. I'll check it out and return- many thanks for the look-
    Regards

    Triple6....You're good! While there wasn't anything to be found in the way at least of an accessable "on-board" device, I did move the Nic to another PCI slot- and bingo! Spec-wise, PCI slots are supposed to be the same, so might the first one I used be defective? (just curious- if they're all supposed to be the same than they shouldnt be able to descriminate from one device to another, right?)

    Anyway, appreciate the assist very much- nothing like getting away from a dial-up connection- Have a great weekend , and thanks again!
    Regards

    No, not likely defective but some PCI can have Resources assigned to it in the BIOS for specific uses.
