    Sis 6326 Driver - Help!

    I recently downloaded the latest generic sis 6326m driver, which was
    upgraded from (I think) the 1997 driver. However, it has since caused a
    conflict with other hardware, which means that my monitor now shuts down
    whenever I attempt to play a game. I own a Pentium II 350, 64 Megabytes
    of RAM, with a 4.2 Gig harddrive. I am running windows 95. The message
    that Windows gave me, telling me of the hardware conflict, was -

    Memory Range EF000000 - EF7FFFFF used by:
    PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge
    Memory Range FFDF0000 - FFDFFFFF used by:
    PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge
    Input/Output Range CC00 - CC7F used by:
    PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge.

    For the EF value, the next highest 'free' (when there is no longer a
    conflict with another piece of hardware) memory value is
    F8000000-F87FFFFF, while the next lowest free memory value is
    EE000000-EE7FFFFF.

    For the FF value, the next highest free value is FFE00000 - FFE0FFFF,
    while the next lowest free value is FFCF0000-FFCFFFFF.

    For the input/output value (CC00-CC7F), the next highest free value is
    D000-D07F, while the next lowest value is BF80-BFFF.

    I have tried different combinations of these settings, however, when I
    reload my computer I receive the message that these settings are not
    suitable for my hardware. Consequently, I wish to know if there are any
    other settings you can suggest (based on this limited information - I
    know almost nothing about these settings or their actual functions), or
    where I can download the old driver, which naturally worked fine. Or,
    any other information you think might help me, without utterly
    destroying my computer. If you need any further information, don't
    hesitate to contact me. My e-mail address is notleonardo@hotmail.com,

    Thanks,

    Notleonardo.

    You will not be able to successfully resolve this "resource conflict" under Win95. The Win95 device manager will *always* show a supposed conflict when using any AGP video card. Trying to resolve the conflict by adjusting resources only causes problems. According to most of the techs who post here, this conflict is not really a conflict at all and should not affect the performance of your video card. The problem is that Win95 does not properly recognize the AGP card and tries to assign PCI resources to it. My preference, if it is at all possible, is to upgrade to Win98. Windows 98 doesn't have this problem with AGP video cards.

    To get your video card back to normal, you may need to go into Win95 in safe mode, delete the video card from device mangler, then reboot and let Win95 redetect the card. The default resources that Win95 assigns should work fine.

    I hope this helps,

    Steve
