First thing would be to go into the device manager and make sure all of your components are working properly. It's really easy to tell what is what since any devices with problems will have an exclamation mark beside them

Most hardware conflicts deal with IRQ conflicts, and unfortunetely all IRQs are assigned permanetely and automatically by Windows and the only way to change them manually is to reinstall Windows with the HAL

Therefore in your situation the best thing to do is make sure said conflicting devices are not important to your system, and disable them...and then update all drivers. Obviously updating the BIOS is a given so you can disable your intergrated sound

So go through the device manager and disable the conflicting devices and update drivers and that should hopefully fix the problem
