    Hp Pavillon 4440 win98 se I was cleaning the computer trying a processor i had it from another hp but it wouldn't work so I putt it back in on boot up it pops a message at the bottom of a list of things its is loading saying there is a resource conflict in pci slot 5. I t says this twice the same thing also listing bus and functional numbers. I thought maybe it was the modem\sound card cause thats the only thing in a pci slot. I removed it the conflict goes away but then I don't have a modem or sound card this a card that is modem and soundcard on the sme card. I uninstalled the card and all from the add&remove programs made sure it was off the c:\ drive I even tried another sound card it said that it was in use all the time but i didn't get the resource conflict. The other thing is there are no resource conflicts in the device manager just right at boot up it lets me resume and everything works just no pci abilities not sure even a restore would fix this problem.

    Try entering the BIOS by pressing F1 during a restart - Often press the key slightly before or at the HP splash screen. Once in the BIOS load the default settings - done by consulting the proper 'F' key at the menu at page bottom of the BIOS screen. Use the arrow keys below the Del key and the Enter key to exit the BIOS, saving changes, to see if the computer will now boot to Windows normally.
