I have a FIC  SD-11 mother board, athlon 500 Mhz processor, 32 megs of SD 100 mHz Ram, Win98 SE.  Have loaded and installed the IRQ mini-port driver patch from VIA, and still get "ERROR CODE 5: DSP TIMEOUT MAY BE A RESOURCE CONFLICT"  System Properties, shows no errors, and win98 SE always installs my monster sound card on IRQ 9.  I have tried different slots with only my matrox millenium video card installed. Have a ps2 mouse enabled on my bios.  Any help  short of a new motherboard. Have tried another monster sound card with the same results.  Both cards work on another computer, so I know the cards are good,my monster sound mx200 is brand new out of the box.

Check if you have a "reset coniguration data" in your motherboard bios, if you do, set it to yes and save changes and restart...
just a tip...

When I've changed hardware, especially sound cards which include joy stick goodies, frequently had problems until I changed my style and improve my success rate and minimized conflicts.  SAFE MODE reflects problems that normal doesn't.

Do a normal shutdown, leave off a  couple of minutes.

REboot holding CTRL 'til menu, then select SAFE MODE, then check Device Manager and delete all references to problem devices, if duplicates are found DELETE ALL occurrences, pay attention to ghost entries such as unknown devices, and duplicate joy sticks, etc.

Then a reboot to see if the conflict is resolved via deletion of problems and rediscovery of HW and updated drivers.

If this isn't the solution and conflict wasn't eliminated, please post information (you can easily export your MSINFO32 information to txt file to cut/paste key info, such as IRQ assignments and/or problem devices, etc).  You mentioned PS/2 mouse, that's IRQ 12, if IRQ 4 isn't needed for other HW, may free this up.  Start-run-msconfig, check your start up files to see what may be loading here you can uncheck and test to see of realmode driver loads are creating problems.

There's also great Windows 98 Troubleshooters available online from help.

I'm unfamiliar with your Motherboard, but as a matter of course, when I encounter conflicts that aren't logical, I check my Motherboard site for updated BIOS information.  May also be worthy of check if your situation continues.

I am not familiar with FIC motherboard, but assuming that it's standard among all other motherboards.

Several Solutions (may worth the shot)

1. Go into BIOS and change PnP to NO (or vice versa)
2. Be sure to have IRQ Sharing on AUTO or Share 3 IRQ..
3. Be sure to have the IRQ Resource all on AVAILABLE unless you have an ISA card that MUST have an IRQ reserved...

Hope this helps...
