Device Conflict Symptoms

A hardware conflict may occur when you add a new device to your system. In some instances, this conflict will not cause any problem, and depending on the operating system you may not even be aware that such a conflict exists.

Typical symptoms of hardware conflicts include:
* The operating system may freeze frequently
* The new device may suffer performance problems
* An existing device that is conflicting with the new device may suffer performance problems
* Windows starts in Safe Mode
* The system crashes and you get a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death)
* The sound card stops working or stutters
* The screen jumps and shows garbled images
* The mouse stops working
* Modem/network card doesn’t respond
* CD/DVD drive doesn’t respond or crashes the system
