    The device manager shows a resouce conflict for the system timer. system timer properties shows: this device is causing a resource conflict (code 15 System timer properties Interrupt request shows ... conflicting device list: interrupt request 00 used by system reserve (then it has a red 0 with a slash through it) What usually causes this? This computer has win98 and about a month ago had a new modem installed but has worked fine until about a week ago. The only changes to this was windows updates.

    In this case you might want to include removal of the 'lower' duplicates only, in System Devices, leave the Motherboard Resources alone. Just do the System Timer/Clock lower ones you're having trouble with Only, OK? And do the rest, as instructed below, in this tutorial too.

    Boot into Safe Mode - (tap F8 twice per second during a restart; Choose option number three (3) in the Windows Startup dialog box using the arrow keys below the Delete key, and strike the Enter key; Click Ok when prompted);

    Right click My Computer; Point to Properties; Click the Device Manager tab; Click the plus sign beside CD-ROM; Highlight each device inside CD-ROM, each in turn, and click the Add/Remove button until no main CD-ROM entry is present.

    Repeat with each device below that, Display Adapters etc. (see exceptions below), removing all entries duplicate inside a main heading. If duplicates are present, remove all those Duplicate Entries Only, inside a main heading.

    Do Not bother Hard Disk Controllers, System Devices, and USB controllers.

    Restart via the Start button and Windows will re-detect, refresh and only replace those devices needed. There is no use for 2 keyboards, CD-ROM etc. as those duplicates cause some of the errors you describe.
