Primary Ide Conflict

By Stonking

  1. Hi, My Primary Ide channel has a yellow blob against it, my Primary Ulta ATA/ATAPI channel is fine. My Secondary IDE Channel is fine as is my VIA Bus Master Ultra ATA controller. It would seem that my Primary IDE Channel is trying to share IRQ with my Primary Ultra ATA/ATPI channel on IRQ14. If I disable my Primary IDE I get a fault and it all shuts down. On the resources page of the Primary IDE the Use Auto setting is ticked and greyed as is the setting based on curent config. How do I get these un-greyed so that I can resolve the conflict. I'm using Windoes XP Pro.

    Have you tried installing the latest VIA Hyperion drivers?
