An error message says there is a problem with IRQ, I/O port, DMA configuration or resource allocation, and refers to troubleshooting the BIOS

An error message says there is a problem with IRQ, I/O port, DMA configuration or resource allocatio

Cause: The BIOS configures and allocates resources to the IRQ and I/O ports. In most BIOSes, this allocation cannot be changed or modified by the user. Some BIOSes may provide a “soft menu” to change these allocations.

Solution: It’s preferable to get the BIOS checked by a computer engineer. Use the “Load Fail-safe (Factory) Defaults” options in the setup menu. If a soft menu is available, ensure you read up the associated documentation before changing any settings.
