I am going to ask this question in great detail so to aid you in giving the most correct answer as possible.
Please do not guess on an answer... Leave the question open for an "expert" that KNOWS THE ANSWER.
This is concerning a pentium 100 (packard bell) computer. It origianally had win 3.1 installed. I later converted it to win95. And now finally to win98.
I had to install a new hard drive back when it was running win95. At that time I began getting an error that I did not understand. I thought win98 might resolve the problem, but it did not. I am now assuming it is a bios problem...
At boot up the display says:
System bios shadowed
Video bios shadowed
IO device IRQ conflict
Then it asks if you want to enter setup or continue to boot.
I see nothing in the bios settings that look incorrect (but I could be wrong)
I see nothing in the computers "properties" that indicates any IRQ problem or conflict.
This is a "PHOENIX BIOS" Version 4.04
If anyone knows the answer to this problem - Please respond. I will be very gratefull !!!
If you do not know the answer for sure, Please leave the question open for other experts to review !!!
I would apprecite any input, But I do not want the question blocked from other experts untill I have a solid answer.
Thanks Very Much,
