    I have an HP Pavillion - I just installed a new hard drive. I am now getting this on boot up:

    Resource Conflict - PCI in Slot 01
    Bus: 01, Device: 0e, Function:00

    What to do? - Where is PCI slot 1

    Thanks

    Betty

    pci slot 1 would be closest to the agp slot, the top pci slot.

    I don't get it, did you change any pci cards, adding the hard drive shouldn't have done anything with the irq's, memory resources, etc.

    Did you enter bios and setup the new drive.

    Make sure you jumpered the drive correctly and that the full capacity of the drive is recognized in the bios.

    I did not change any cards whatsoever.

    In checking setup - it reports the proper MB (30604) for the new drive. However, if I hit return on the Primary Master - I get
    Type: Auto
    and CHS format - Maximum Capacity 8455MB
    LBA Format max capacity 30604MB.

    ???means nothing to me.

    Are the pci slots the white ones? Actually - the only card I have is the modem - which I don't need - should I take it out? ( I have a cable modem that is not yet hooked to that computer.

    I did nothing in the bios - was I supposed to?

    Primary master looks fine, you need to run lba to see the entire drive size.

    Set the new one to auto also.

    Does it make a difference.

    What does "run LBA" mean? How do I do that? I tried highlighting "LBA" but it wouldn't let me highlight it, although it says max capacity 30604 which is the correct size (30 gig HD)

    duh, when you format the drive, you select lba, that makes the drive fat32 and it will see the capacity, my answer above was incorrect.
    boot to the dos prompt, run fdisk, choose option #4 view partition info, what does it say about both, should both be fat32 if you format the new drive

    Ran F-Disk - all drives are Fat32.

    If I Select "F2" Resume, after the error message - everything works fine.

    In the Device manager under Other Devices - all PCI's have the yellow ?'s Could this be the modem? Think I'll take it out. Could it be the scanner hooked to the parallel port? ( I have no printers attached)

    All the devices have ? because you are getting a conflict at boot, before Windows loads. This conflict is being sent on to Windows, and Windows is showing it to you.

    Once it is cleared up Windows should clear up too.

    Is there any more to the error message at boot? If the only PCI card (yes, they are the white slots) you have is the modem try taking it out to see if the errors go away.
