Hi When my computer boots up "It says plug and play congiguration error. Press f1 to continue or f2 to enter set up".
It boots up fine and works well. But always displays this message at the boot up screen. I dont have a virus and the bios setting havent been changed.

Any idea as to what this can relate to? I have even re-installed windows.

Thanks all

well for a start if it is a plug and play config problem reinstalling windows will make no difference at all. Look in the device manager for any conflicts with hardware (yellow exclaimation mark) then you will have an idea what is causing this. Have you installed any new hardware recently? What version of windows? Please detail any error message in full

Hi my system says I have a Hardware conflict. A plug and play device appears about 20 Times in my hardware manger I have un-Installed it but it re-Installs it's self as soon as windows loads up.

This is the hardware manager descripton of the error.

"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."

And Im not exaclty wha it is it is definately my graphic card.
