  1. Resources Conflict On eMachines W2040 PLZ PLZ HELP!!!

    I recently purchased a Rage 128 GL AGP video card and its installed and everything but i get the stupid (code 12) problem " This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12) If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system.

    Now here is the conflict:

    Input/Output Range 03B0 - 03BB used by:
    VIA Tech CPU to AGP Controller
    Input/Output Range 03C0 - 03DF used by:
    VIA Tech CPU to AGP Controller
    Memory Range 000A0000 - 000BFFFF used by:
    VIA Tech CPU to AGP Controller

    Then i looked in my system information and yes that is the conflict, now my question is what happends if i were to disable the "VIA Tech CPU to AGP Controller " shouldnt that fix the problem, plz plz help

    I'll take a stab at this. Do you have any PCI card installed just below the AGP card slot? If so, try moving it down to a lower slot.
