Holder for PCI Steering
Posted on 1998-02-05
I've just been reading an IRQ question which prompted me to ask the following:
My desktop (bought June 96) had Windows 95 (original release, I presume). I have had several recurrent problems with this PC so when I bought my laptop a couple of months ago, I decided to use the Windows 95 (4.00.950 B) installation disk to see if it corrected any of my problems.
It did to a certain degree but, in My Computer, I now have a hardware conflict because of 3 "Holders for PCI Steering" that I never had before (only one of which is causing a conflict - the others being IRQ 9 & 12).
Now this normally wouldn't be a problem but my computer is quite full of hardware and this glitch has robbed me of IRQs that I previously had spare (and I haven't added any more hardware since my prvious version of Windows95!!).
As far as I can remember, I didn't have these "Holders" before so why have they appeared now in this service pack?
And how can it be remedied (without reverting to my previous version of Windows95 and the problems that it caused!!).
