Hi. I am having a problem with the AM37L motherboard, a board\nexclusive to eMachines, particularly the W2040 model.\n\nI'm trying to install a new video card. It's a Radeon 9600 XT 256MB\nfrom GeCube (Tiwanese company like FIC).\n\nI shut the computer off, put it in, put the moniter cable in it, and\nboot it up. Windows found the new hardware and wanted to install it\nfor me, I closed it out and ran the Setup from the CD. When that was\ndone, I restarted, came back, and it told me that the ATI Control\nPanel cannot start up because there is either a problem with the\ndriver or the driver isn't installed. I run Device Manager and it\nshows exclamation marks on both USB and ATI Radeon 9600 Series\ndevices. I see what the problem is and they both say\n\n-\-\-\n\nThis device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code\n12)\n\nIf you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the\nother devices on this system.\n\nClick Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device.\n\n-\-\-\n\nSo I run troubleshooting on ATI Radeon.\n\n-\-\-\n\nAre you having problems using this device?\nIf a resource being used by a particular device conflicts with a\nresource reserved by your computer, the conflict most likely will not\ncause problems. If you are not having any other problem using your\ndevice, you can probably ignore this resource conflict.\n\nAre you having a problem using this device?\n\n-\-\-\n\nSo I close out, try to run a game, and it tells me that it can't\ninitialize a shader thingy. I close out, go back to the trouble\nshooter and chose\n\nYes, I am having a problem using this device and want to resolve the\nconflict.\n\n-\-\-\n\nIs your device installed more than once?\n\n-\-\-\n\nWell I do see 2 Radeon's installed. One is 9600 Series and the other\nis 9600 Series Secondary, which I assumed is the CRT, which has no\nexclamation mark by the way. I try uninstalling the drivers,\nrebooting, reinstalling, again ignoring Windows, restart, and I get\ndeja vu.\n\nSo no, I still have a resource conflict. Or, my device was installed\nonly once.\n\n-\-\-\n\nConfigure one or more devices to use different resources.\n\nIf two devices are configured to use the same resource, and one of\nthem shows Error Code 12, configure one or both of the devices to use\ndifferent resources.\n\nNote that it is normal for devices to share resources on your\ncomputer, and this does not usually cause a problem. You should only\nchange the resource settings if you receive Error Code 12 for one of\nthe devices that is sharing the resource.\n\nTo find out which resources your device is sharing\n\nOpen Device Manager.\nIf the category for your device is not expanded, double-click the\ncategory.\nUnder the category for your device, click the device with which you\nare having trouble.\nOn the View menu, click Resources by type.\nDouble-click the resource types to see which resources are being used\nby which devices. If the device with which you are having trouble is\nsharing a resource setting with another device, try configuring one of\nthe devices to use a different resource.\nNote\n\nTo open Device Manager, click Start, click Control Panel, click\nPerformance and Maintenance, and then click System. In the System\nProperties dialog box, click the Hardware tab, and then click Device\nManager.\nTo configure a device to use a different resource\nWhile you are in the Resources by type view, double-click the device\nfor which you want to change resource settings.\nOn the Resources tab, under Resource type, click the entry that\nconflicts with another device.\nClear the Use automatic settings check box, and then click a different\nconfiguration in the Setting based on list.\nClick Change Setting.\nScroll through the available Value settings, checking Conflict\ninformation as you select each one.\nIf you find a setting that does not conflict with one of your other\ndevices, click OK, and then restart your computer.\n\nIf all settings conflict with other devices, click Cancel to close the\ndialog box, answer No to the question at the bottom of this page, and\nthen click Next.\nNote\n\nDepending on the type of hardware you have, you might need to change\nthe jumper settings on your card to match the new resource setting or\nrun a configuration utility provided by the hardware manufacturer.\n\nIf the jumper settings on your card are not set appropriately, your\nhardware will not work, even if you resolve the conflict correctly.\n\nIf you make changes to your jumpers or make any other physical changes\nto your hardware, make sure that you turn your computer off first. For\nmore information, consult your device documentation or contact the\nmanufacturer.\n\nNote\n\nTo open Device Manager, click Start, click Control Panel, click\nPerformance and Maintenance, and then click System. In the System\nProperties dialog box, click the Hardware tab, and then click Device\nManager.\n\nDoes reconfiguring one or more devices resolve the hardware conflict?\n\n-\-\-\n\nI try and do this, but low-and-behold I can't change anything in the\nResources tab because it says\n\n-\-\-\n\nThis device cannot find enough free resources that it can use.\n\nIf you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the\nother devices on this system.\n\n-\-\-\n\nSo no, I still have a hardware conflict.\n\n-\-\-\n\nTurn off one of the conflicting devices.\n\nWell, I really don't want to do this since I'm using 4 USB devices,\nbut I try anyway. I uninstall the USB, restart, my USB mouse still\nworks (the only thing plugged in at the time), go back, USB says it\nhas an unknown driver. Radeon 9600 still has conflict resource.\n\n-\-\-\n\nI look around GeCube's (card manufacturer) site, Windows Support site,\nATI's site, can't find anything relevant to my situation. I go ask\neMachine's live technical support.\n\nThey tell me that I have to take the card out, restart it in Safe\nMode, Disable the onboard video via Device Manager, and reboot with\nthe card in. I go and do this but when I go and disable the video, it\nseems like nothing happened. It doesn't even prompt me to restart. I\ngo ahead and restart, put the card back in, still unable to start ATI\nControl Panel and Radeon 9600 Series still has the same error.\n\nThe troubleshooter after the last one is\n\n-\-\-\n\nThis troubleshooter is unable to solve your problem.\nYou have run into a problem that this troubleshooter cannot help you\nsolve. For additional Windows resources, click Start, point to All\nPrograms, and then click Windows Update.\n\n-\-\-\n\nGee, thanks for all your help Windows.\n\neMachines mentioned that the motherboard number is AM37L. I checked\nNIC's site for a firmware upgrade and it wasn't even listed. I found\nthis thread\n\n[URL]http://forums.viaarena.com/messageview.cfm?catid=24&threadid=49924[/URL]\n\nAnd they seem to be having the same problem as me.\n\nWhat would you suggest I do?
