When I boot up Win 98 II get a message "Conflict I/O ports:378." I
says press F1 it then continues to boot. How do I correct the
conflict and have it boot normally?
Thanks John

I cchecked the device manager and found the conflict is between the
printer port (which doesn't have a printer installed on the machine)
and the Yamaha Sound System.

Interrupt rquest 07
I/O Output range 378-037F

Interrupt request 07 Used by Yamaha Sound System

I/O Output Range 0378-037F used by Printer Port LPT 1

Again there is no printer installed on this machine.

Does this help and how do I solve the conflict. I am able to do some
cleanup but ams bit of a novice when it come to these problems.

Thank you

Check the documentation on the Yamaha Sound System. You should be able to
configure it to use an IRQ and I/) that is different from that used by the
parallel port. Whether you have a printer or not, you still have the port
on your system. If the Yamaha sound system is onboard or on a PCI card,
then it can share an IRQ with another PCI device.

Another option might be to disable the LPT port in the BIOS. The ability to
do that will depend on your BIOS.

Some BIOS will give you the option of setting any IRQ as a legacy device.
If you have this option, set IRQ7 as legacy. This should force the Yamaha
to take another IRQ during the boot process if it's setup for automatic
configuration.

I think that you will definitely find your answer here, probably on the
first site. I wish you well.

In Device Manager, highlight the printer port, go Properties, and
"[x] disable in this profile". That's the preferred way to get
Windows to ignore a device you don't want to use - if you "delete" the
device, Plug-n-Play will just discover it again.

Often, you can also disable the device in CMOS Setup.
