Have a Bios Error on a 5100 Acer

Laptop will go into Bios but before I go into CMOS program I get an error saying conflicting IO on PCI slot 3. Problem is I'm not finding any settings to modify operating PCI slots. As well this computer was said to have a virus so it will not allow me to look at the OS installed.

Specs:

Acer Aspire BL51

Turion x2 MK-36 2.0 Ghz

1GB Pc4200 200 pin Sodimm

Wireless Adapter: Atheros AR5BMB

160 GB HDD

OS: Windows Vista Home Premium

Any ideas as to what may be wrong been searching and have found no manuals to tear this thing apart and check for loose connections etc.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

How are the system resources set in the BIOS? Is it set to auto or user defined? Also is plug and play OS set to yes in the BIOS? I believe that the Acer uses the PCI slot 3 for the SD card reader. If your model is equipment with that, try to change your system settings accordingly. Also, do you get the hit F1 to continue or anything like that after you receive your interrupt error message?

It asks me to hit F1 to continue and this model does have a SD Card reader. Error Screen Reads:

System BIOS Version: V2.70

Bus:06, Device:02, Function,00

ERROR

Resource Conflict - PCI in slot 03

Bus:06, Device:04, Function:00

ERROR

Resource Conflict - PCI in slot 03

Bus:06, Device:04, Function:01

ERROR

Resource Conflict - PCI in slot 03

Bus:06, Device:04, Function:02

ERROR

Resource Conflict - PCI in slot 03

Bus:06, Device:04, Function:03

ERROR

Press <F1> to resume, <F2> to Setup

That is all I'm getting I may have to see if I can disable or remove the SD Card reader its unnecessary for me to have anyways.

Sorry had a long shift yesterday :-) try again should be working for you now.

Reading the update, it is a hardware error of whatever is using your PCI slot 3 You may have to disable all your non-essential devices in the BIOS and then enable them one at a time to see which one it is. Start with your SD reader. Good Luck

+ For the service manual. The problem is more than likely the southbridge with that era of AMD architecture.

I have the same problem with my Windows Vista, Acer Aspire 5100 Laptop PC. In addition to the error messages my battery was not charging up. I corrected this problem on my computer by uninstalling "Symantec" Products. The PC works great now.
