    Hi, I recently bought a new computer system with the Asus P4S333C M/B and am using XP (home).

    I did a clean install but I have an IRQ sharing device conflit.

    This conflict is between Memory Stick Device Driver A and Secure Digital Device Driver B trying to share the same IRQ - #5.

    I have no idea what this is or what these devices do, but the drivers came with the m/board.

    So far, I have not been able to work this out. I can't seem to find a solution, other than disabling these devices. They don't seem to be causing any problems with my system and when enabled, the "!" icon appears next to them.

    Can someone please help. I am just wondering if someone out there has had a similar problem.

    Thanks in advance.

    Try moving your pci devices to different slots and see if that clears up the problem.

    good luck:D

    Thanks for the advice.

    I only have one PCI slot used and that is the internal modem.

    I removed it but still the same problem. I believe the MS/SD drivers are based around a device on the m/board, but the manual indicates that there is simply a connector on the m/board.

    My guess is these drivers are used to power the connector and whatever device is attached.
