Resolve resource conflicts with your Novatel Wireless Ovation U720 on Windows XP

Last Updated: Nov 18, 2013

Follow these steps to resolve resource conflicts with your Novatel Wireless Ovation U720 on Windows XP.

The Sprint Mobile Broadband USB Modem requires these system resources:

  1. 1 IRQ
  2. 4096 bytes of I/O space
  3. Two available communications ports (one modem, one serial)

If these resources are not available to the USB modem, you have a resource conflict. If another PC device is installed, you may be able to free the necessary resources simply by ejecting the other device. Otherwise, you may need to disable another device (such as an internal modem, infrared device, or network device) to resolve the conflict.

To disable the conflicting device, perform the following steps:

  1. Close all Windows programs.
  2. From the Start menu, select Settings, and then select Control Panel.
  3. Double-click the System icon.
  4. Click the Hardware tab.
  5. Click the Device Manager button.
  6. Right-click the conflicting device, and then click Disable.
  7. Click OK.
