2 adaptors do not work simultaniously "this device did not start" (code 10)
Posted on 2002-05-19
my brothers and i have a similar problem on win xp:
i am trying to install 2 isa/pnp ethernet adaptors (for ics). each works when inserted seperately but when both are plugged, one or the other gets "this device did not start"(code 10) error and an "!".
i have the updated drivers (on win xp disk)
both cards are using the same "intel etherexpress/100 isa" driver.
my brothers on a seperate computer have a similar problem with 2 video cards one agp the other pci (for multi monitor).
so far i have taken out all but my video adaptor and the two cards.
i tried uninstalling driver and hardware and reinstalling.- nothing, they only work seperately.
i have win xp pro on pII/450 with 192 meg /40 gig.
i have 4 available irq: 2,5,7,12 when no adapter is plugged except video.
is this a driver problem?
is this a bios problem?
maybe i can edit the registry?
i dont understand what kind of a conflict this is.
thank you, ori
