I was wondering what to believe? My computer shows conflicting messages between: hardware issues, and the windows troubleshooter that says everything is okay. My computer runs fine so I am confused... I am not the most savvy at computers but am trying and willing to learn. Thank you for your time.

What kinda of hardware errors is the computer showing and how is it showing them?

The hardware issues are mainly related to AMD Graphics Card. Motherboard shows I/O,IRQ & Memory Address errors. HID mouse/ADS HDTV PCI/Apple mobile device ethernet/ USB transfer cables/SD Host controller/Remote Desktop USB/Light sensor/LSI Raid Expert/PCMCIA controller/Intel 946GZ Chipset/SMBus driver/AMD USB 3.0 Host controller....I took plenty of notes on this so I could provide information. I hope someone can help me out. Thanks.

Are these errors showing up during the system post? If so windows could be reconfiguring them after it loads the drivers for them and reinits them. I'd your pc has a setting in the bios for Plug and Play OS's( and it should ) make sure it is turned on so that windows handles the assignment of the device resources instead of having to reassign the resources after the bios inits the devices. I would only be concerned if the errors / conflicts are taking place within windows as that means that windows could not change the used resources to avoid the conflicts. If all your devices are working normally within windows that means you have nothing to really be concerned with as windows has reassigned the resources that were conflicting or shared. Also something to note is some devices do not mind sharing resources (mainly IRQs) and sometimes resources are assigned to devices that they do not need.
