Thread: Re XP tweak guide

    First, may I say what a good, easy to follow guide!!

    Very well done.

    I have a question:

    My GeForce 4200Ti 128Mb and Soundblaster Audigy 2 pci cards share IRQ number (it is 16).

    I run XP home and have a MS 6567 motherboard.

    Your guide notes that this can cause problems.

    I am unclear as to how IRQ's can be changed.

    I've tried to assign different IRQ's using the BIOS, but this has had (strangely) no effect.

    You suggest physically moving the device; should I uninstall the device before I try this, or just go ahead and move the device?

    Again, many thanks for the guide and any help you offer me.

    You don't need to unistall a device before moving it. Just move it and see whether the IRQ for it gets reassigned. Once moved, use the "Reset Configuration Data" option (or similar) in the BIOS to reassign IRQs.

    As I mention it's tricky to change IRQs. All you can do is try to disable as many unused devices as possible in the BIOS and in Device Manager and hope that the freed up IRQs are reassigned to your shared devices.
