I don't know where to turn to solve this problem.
Device manager says Intel 82875P Processor to PCI bridge 257b shows yellow exclamation mark, right click on properties and read "not enough resources to run this, free up resources" ... go to resource view and can't tell anything... so I go into the BIOS and uninstall four USB ports and change the interrupt on one of the serial ports just to see what happens... no change. Still yellow exclamation. Uninstall the Intel 82875 etc etc and reboot, it reinstalls it and puts back the yellow exclamation.
The machine is my video editor, 3.0 Ghz pentium, 1GB ram, two SATA drives, one DVD burner, one CDRW drive. Running XP Pro. The motherboard has firewire, USB, and gigabit ethernet, so the only card in my cage is a PNY Quadro to get two (or four) video displays. If I had a cage full of cards I'd uninstall every one of them but I only have one card in this computer and I need the dual display for video... so what resources can I free up?
I was so frustrated I returned the motherboard and they sent me a new one and it has the same problem.
The gigabit port shows green/amber lights when connected but I can't get it to operate. Then I did something dumb, uninstalled some Intel PRO gigabit adapter and now the lights don't even work. Can't figure out how to undo that. So I install a PCI Gigabit card and then my monitors stop working. I'm ready to take the whole thing and launch it off the Golden Gate bridge.
Maybe I'll tie it to my neck first.
