Hardware conflicts + IRQ sharing

    I am getting quite a few 'blue screens of death' :mad: lately so have
    been looking for the problem, the screen most times indicates memory
    problems. I have ran the memory diagnostics tool and this has come back
    saying I do have hardware problems and I should contact my PC
    manufacturer. Unfortunally this is me.

    Looking at conflicts in system information, there seem too be quite a
    few problems. As a n00b to vista, i have no idea if having these is
    common or not.
    Just counting straight off there are 10 conflicts: 5 IO Port addressing
    problems, 4 memory addressing problems and one IRQ problem.
    As I have no clue how to go by solving the IO and memory problems I had
    a look at the IRQ. It seems my USB Host Controller and my NVIDIA nForce
    networking Controller share IRQ 23. I have read that this can be common?

    If anybody has any tips on how to get rid of any of the IO/memory
    addressing problems that would be great.

    Am running vista 32 bit.

  2. Memory diagnostic tools do not look at IRQ sharing. If the test indicates a
    "hardware" problem - look to defective, subpar or improperly matched RAM.
    The RAM could also not be seated correctly in the sockets.

    If you are over clocking look to that as a cause.

    Vista is perfectly capable of sharing IRQ's without any help/intervention
    from you.
