The reason is probably a DMA (Direct Memory Access) or port conflict. To resolve click start , help , contents tab , select troubleshooting , Windows 98 troubleshooters , hardware conflict , follow the on screen prompts to find and resolve any conflicts you've got . If you do have a conflict you need to change the DMA or port assignment for one of the conflicted devices.
