This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)

If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system.

Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device.

====================

This is the error message i get in my device manager for my controller. i cannot install one or even use one! this port is located on my soundcard. i never had this problem efore. i had the same card for 2 yrs now.

Amd athlon 2800xp (clocked at 2.29ghz)

Ati radeon 9800PRO 128MB
Dell monitor
HP scanjet 2200C scanner
Dlink webcam
Justlink burner
floppy drive,
Maxtor 20GB HD
Abit-NF7 MOBO
logitech mouse
SB PCI 128bit <-soundcard- never had a prob with it before.

now i listed other hardware specs in the above list just incase.

i tried updating the drivers for this card. but the drivers that the main site has is still the same.
i tried uninstalling reinstalling. what the heck could be the prob- pls if anyone can help id reallly appreciate it!

What hardware or software have you installed lately that coincided with the problem you are having? Could you give details?

An older sound card like that can be picky about the resources it needs to operate properly - generally I would install a sound card before most of the other components to give it first shot at resources (if possible).

A restore might help - but might be overkill. Let us know the details of the actions you performed when the problem occured and we can make an informed suggestion to you - OK?

Disable com ports 1 & 2 in the bios, if you don't have a printer or ue you printer
port disable it to... It all frees resoucres...

Puting the card in another slot can help as well..

I would also double check your bios settings to make sure that AC'97 audio (onboard audio) is disabled.

ltig99 is on a distinguished road

The fix for this (at least its what worked for me and many other people) is to set the AGP aperature size in your BIOS to 256 mb. This seems to be a problem for people with soundblaster cards, especially the X-Fi, and also for people with ABIT motherboards (I have an ABIT and so do a few other people with this problem). The original thread that I found with this fix is here:

RayWhipped is on a distinguished road

Hi Folks

I'm having a similar problem with a Gigabyte mobo and Creative Vibra 128 card. Disabled onboard sound, both serials, parallel, tried moving it to another pci slot, updated every driver (mobo vid and Vibra), set AGP aperture to 256MB, and flashed the BIOS, all on a clean XPSP2 install - still to no avail

Any suggestions? *fingers toes eyes crossed*

GA-K8NS Ultra-939 F10 motherboard
AMD3700+
2GB RAM
GeForce6800GS


Thanks for all your suggestions so far

Regards,
Ray
