1. Try to start your computer in Safe Mode. To do so, restart your computer, press and hold CTRL, and then choose Safe Mode from the Startup Menu.
NOTE: If you can not start your computer in Safe mode, skip to step 6.
2. View Device Manager to look for driver conflicts. For information about how to do so, see the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
TITLE : Troubleshooting Device Conflicts with Device Manager
3. Determine if your computer has an interrupt request (IRQ) Steering conflict. To do so, disable IRQ steering, and then test to determine if the issue is resolved. For information about how to disable IRQ steering, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
ARTICLE-ID: 182628 TITLE : How to Disable PCI Bus IRQ Steering in Windows
NOTE: If this does not resolve the issue, re-enable IRQ steering. For information about how to do so, refer to the article listed in step 3.
4. Restart your computer. If your computer starts without error messages, your computer's Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) may be generating incorrect information about hardware IRQ settings. To resolve this issue, contact the manufacturer of your computer's motherboard to inquire about the availability of a fix for this issue. If your computer starts with error messages, continue to step 5.
