Conflicts/SharingConflicts/Sharing is located in the Hardware Resources category in System Information It displays devices that share the same resources, such as direct memory access (DMA), IRQs, and memory.

In general, shared resources are not problematic, but investigating potential conflicts can help resolve issues If you are having a problem with a device, check Conflicts/Sharing to verify that there are no sharing conflicts Locate the device in the Device column in the details pane, and then verify which resource the device uses in the Resource column Devices that share the same resource have duplicate entries in the Resource column For example, you may have two adapters that share the same IRQ channel, such as IRQ 5 If the problem device shares a resource with another device, there may be a conflict You can use Device Manager to troubleshoot the problem For more information about Device Manager, see Device Manager.

you should check your system information and make neccesary changes

To open Device Manager, click Start, and then click Control Panel Click Performance and Maintenance, and then click System On the Hardware tab, click Device Manager

For information about using Device Manager, on the Action menu in Device Manager, click Help

good luck
