    Win XP
    MSI 6565 GNB MAX FISR mobo
    P4 2.66
    Gigabyte GV-9700pro
    2-WD raptor HDD (serial raid)
    twin sticks Corsair XMS 512mb 2700LL

    In my device manager it shows I have two 9700 pro installed and enabled, no "!", says they are working properly. I can disable one of them but cant remove it, says that it is "needed to boot" up.
    I just built this computer and its very very unstable, randomly locks up and wont play games :snip: Also I am sharing this 9700 pro IRQ with my on board sound chip. I want to play my BF 1942...... Help me!!!

    This is one of those things you need to talk to tech support about. But you should try and uninstall the card and its drivers. Then, you should reinstall it (duh). I don't think they have hyper-threading on video cards yet :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    I think I can go into my BIOS and manually assign IRQs. my plan is to go and disable my com ports IRQs (they are useless to me), then reassign one of those to my 9700. As far as getting the extra 9700 out of my device manger.....I'm at a loss for. Like you said uninstall my card and reinstall, and hope it don't show up as two again..??:?:

    If you read through the windows XP tweak guide, http://www.tweaktown.com/document.ph...=guide&dId=434 it will tell you that even when changing the IRQs in the BIOS, windows will still most of the time reassign them as it sees fit. The guide will be able to tell you some tips on changing them permanently.

    WAIT...
    I just thought of something. Is it possible that you imstalled 2 dofferent versions of the driver, like you installed it with the program the card came with an then installed it with Windows after that. That could be a reason, because you may have checked the box that allows windows to look on-line for the Drivers. About the IRQ ports, i don't really think that that is it

    And about your comp being unstable, try updating your BIOS string and your mobo drivers. Usually that helps a lot for stability issues on mobos.

    Excellent ideas guys! :thumb: It seems like I remember it going thru two driver install sessions when I first powered my baby up. I am reading those tweak guides now....damn good info he has in there. :thumb: :thumb: I have the latest BIOS, not sure about the mobo, I'll check when I get home. I can see now that my evening will be spent fixing and tweaking stuff. Thanks alot :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
