Go to device manager and check and see what is using what IRQ's, is there 2 listed using the same IRQ as your video adapter? none??
Well then you may have to check each of the other devices and see if any of them has a conflict, I will say you will find it then.
Also does it show two fo any devices in the device manager? sometime it will list two of the same device and they will conflict with each other

Do you have a sound card or other multimedia device like a gamesport.....some laptop bideo cards have tendancy to conflicy with these. Same as above......change the IRQ to one not needed by the soundcard.

i checked if the IRQs of other devices conflict with the video card but the prob is that the video card has no IRQ, also its confusing because in the resource tab it says there is no conflicting device
