M.S. conflicts?

Specs: Windows 98, 266/16
I got about 2-3 problems with this (new to me) computer, but just one right now.

I began Device Manager in Win 98 and now find two conflicts at Hard disk controllers. I see two in the yellow with ! marks. One at Primary IDE controller and one at Secondary IDE controller. The standard Dual Controller looks to have no problems. Have not had this situation in numerous months and it only showed up last week. Computer still runs normally though. I think last time I saw such was years ago, and simply did a DELETE and they both were gone. My nearly 2000 page book via Microsoft Press says to reload drivers and every problem will go away.

Can I delete the conflicts again? And will they be gone then?

It sounds like you might not have the chipset drivers installed.

You can try deleting them and on reboot 98 should find them and set them up again. If not, do an 'add new hardware' search.

But yeah, that's usually a chipset driver problem. Does the motherboard have an intel chipset?

It is a very-very cheap H-P item now. Does not even have a "Reset" or re-boot button. But last time I looked inside, Yes, the CPU had an Intell sticker.

You may be able to get the specs by googling the model number or on HP's site. Or software like belarc, everest or cpuid may tell you what you've got.

Once you find out, on Intel's site start here:

If it's an old P-I then you probably have a 400 series chipset. An old P-II or P-III may also be a 400 series. A newer P-II or P-III will have an 810 or 815 chipset.

It might not be the chipset drivers but that's the place to start.
