I tried to install my FX5700 and when I loaded up my pc I got the error code 10: The device could not be started. I had a suggestion to " Assign IRQ to VGA" in the bios to fix this but I do not have this command in my bios. How can I fix this/get my card to work?

What did this video card replace?
Did you uninstall the old card in windows and remove old drivers?
What OS? What system?

I replaced a radeon 9200 se with an nvidia 5700. I uninstalled all of the old ATI drivers and programs.
I have windows xp running on an emachines T2895 with a 2.8 ghz and 1 gig of ram.

"Assign IRQ to VGA" This is something that should be enabled with your video card. I imagine that some newer BIOS don't give you the option to disable it, perhaps that's why you can't find it. Are you seeing the error code in Device Manager? You did install the drivers for the card?

Although sometimes Bios updates are needed to get things to work what I was saying was that you probably don't need to worry about the assign IRQ setting. Have you tried uninstalling the video card and rebooting.

I have uninstalled and I still get the same result. This is making me real mad not getting this card to work.
