    Hardware Conflict

    I bought a Herc Prophet 4500 from the boards the other day and it got here pretty quick.

    When i plug it into my nf7-s and boot into windows it tells me that the AGP to PCI bus is conflicting with PCI to PCI bridge. If i disable one i cant use the other (AGP or PCI) I didnt have this problem with the other gfx card :S

    I went into the devic manager to try and change resource addresses etc but "use automatic settings" is ticked and greyed out making it not changeable.

    Im all out of ideas can anyone help :S

    EDIT: heres the report im getting:

    Input/Output Range 03B0 - 03BB used by:
    PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge
    Input/Output Range 03C0 - 03DF used by:
    PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge
    Memory Range 000A0000 - 000BFFFF used by:
    PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge

    goto bios and turn off all thje extra performace settings for pci and agp, for example

    agp fastwires
    agp sideband addressing
    enhance pci performance
    also disabling pci latency can help(to make it not pci2.1 compatable? i think, thats whats in my k7s5a manual)

    after looking around I have found many forums saying that the kyro2 has a chipset problem with nvidia nforce2 boards and that they just dont and wont work :-(

    Hope CrapshoT is as kind and heartful as I dreamed last night :-(
    i didnt dream about him ^

    Yeah CrapshoT rocks! I dreamt about him giving me his Rad9700 card as he really wanted a Rad9800....

    Anyway you could get a GF4MX for very little cash which is comparable to KyroII. Rad9000PRO or GF-FX5200 are a nice step up and great cards for such low prices.

    I would have suggested ensuring everythign was stock (ie no o/c's). Then reinsert the card ensuring it's all the way in. Then be sure to use the latest mobo BIOS and latest official drivers for all your hw (partic mobo and gfx). Also you could have tried removing all PCI cards and disabling onboard stuff (sound, LAN etc). Switching to AGP2x or even disabling it (AGP0x) would also be worth a try too. The thing most likely to work would have been to try a fresh OS install as swapping gfx cards can often mess Windows up beyond repair. I guess it doesn't matter now and bottom line, the KyroII are pretty old (as anything more than 6 motnhs old is now-a-days) and it was very likely nothing more than a wierd incompatibility problem. Were KyroII 3.3v beasts as that would certainly pose a problem?

    Well thnx for the gfx card recommendations but im getting a r9700 in 2 weeks, this is just a temporary card to let me see whats going on in the computer and play some less demanding games such as cs.
