: I went to Futureshop the other day and got my 64MB ram upgraded to 2 128MB ram. Now some of my drivers on my system are missing, it's working at a 64MB ram level, and i get this message on startup:
: ERROR
: Resource Conflict - PCI in slot 01
: Bus: 00 , Device: 0B , Function: 00
: Does anybody know how to fix this?


If I understand correctly, you now have 2x128 = 256MB onboard memory but your system only sees 64MB of it. If that is correct, it sounds like your neighborhood techie didn't bother to check his work. Memory upgrade is rarely plug n play for older mainboards due to chipset limitations. Check your mainboard manual - what is the maximum onboard memory? maximum memory per stick? single sided or double sided sticks required? You may need to study the chipset spec book to know if the new memory meets chipset limitations.

Take your system back and have Futureshop FIX the memory "upggrade" then see if they introduced any additional problems. Where is Futureshop located?

Adding memory (when done RIGHT) should not cause hardware conflicts - sounds like maybe something got loosened when the techie was messing up the memory.

After you get the memory issues resolved, RESEAT all of the cards, cables, etc then get into Device Manager (>Start >Settings >Control Panel >>System >Device Manager). Look for yellow blobs and let the wizard help you identify and resolve the conflicts.

Good Luck,
Henry
