    I have 1 and 2 both free. 3 is a 56k modem which is disabled in win2k. 4 is a Creative Sounblaster PCI. All of these 3 devices have been given an IRQ of 9 (by win2k I assume). Could this be a problem? And if so, anyone know how I change it? Thanks.

    Update:

    Windows System Information shows that I have the following devices all sharing IRQ9:

    MS ACPI-compliant system
    NVIDIA GeForce 2MX
    VIA USB Universal Host Controller
    VIA USB Universal Host Controller (yes, listed twice)
    Creative Soundblaster PCI (WDM)
    HCF 56k PCI Modem
    Win2000 Promise Ultra 100 IDE Controller

    Surely this cannot be good??!!

    All devices sharing 1 IRQ is standard in all Windows NT OS's unless you set up the install of the OS as a standard PC during the install. :smokin:

    On many boards PCI Slot 3 has the highest priority - especially on the ASUS A7V - if you have a SoundBlaster Live! on this board then you can eliminate some of the problems by placing it in PCI Slot 3 :thumb:

    If all elses fails, you can try d/l the Nvidia driver off Windows update. I was having some GF2 troubles and that driver fixed it. I don't really know why, but I'm not gonna complain.

    That's because the drivers on Windows Update are digitally signed by Microsoft, which means that they are certified compatible with Windows. Apart from the fact you can't use Coolbits to overclock with the certified drivers, if you're having problems it may be worth a shot :thumb:
