Even more common problem concerns software drivers. The fact of the matter is that programmers do write buggy software,
and there's a chance that any problem which seems hardware-related may actually be due to some bug in the card's driver.
Check with the card's manufacturer that you have the latest drivers. Ask if there have been any problems reported that may
be applicable to your own setup.
And definitely don't rule out the possibility that you may have configured the driver's setup (ie, "Properties" in
Resolving Device Conflicts
- Right-click on 'My Computer' on your desktop and choose 'Properties'. - A window will appear that says 'System Properties.'
Click on the tab at the top of the window that says 'Device Manager.' - If there is a conflict, a yellow exclamation point (!)
will appear next to the device name. - Single-click on the driver that has the conflict (if there is more than one, click on the
first one), and then click on the button that says 'Properties'. - A window will appear that has the name of the device on it.
Click on the 'Resources' tab at the top of the window. - Towards the bottom of the window you will see a box that is
labeled 'Conflicting device list'. This will tell you which device is conflicting with the one you are looking at. - To solve the
problem, click on the box next to 'Use automatic settings' so that there is not a check in the box. - Click on the box next
to 'Setting based on' and select each of the configurations in the list until the 'Conflicting device list' box says 'No conflicts'.
Once it says that, click 'OK'. - Once you're back at the 'System Properties' window, click 'OK'. You will probably be asked
to restart your computer. Do so.
Repeat those steps for each device that has a yellow exclamation point (!) next to it. That should remove any problems
