    I'm wondering how to change IRQ settings in Windows ME. I have a conflict which will not allow me to use my printer while I am on line via my cable access. the conflict is at irq 10. my settings are as follows:

    IRQ 0 System timer OK
    IRQ 1 Standard 101/102-Key or Microsoft Natural Keyboard OK
    IRQ 2 System board extension for ACPI BIOS OK
    IRQ 3 Psion Gold Card Global 56K Combine iT OK
    IRQ 4 Communications Port (COM1) OK
    IRQ 5 ESS Maestro PCI Audio (WDM) OK
    IRQ 5 ACPI IRQ Holder for PCI IRQ Steering OK
    IRQ 6 Standard Floppy Disk Controller OK
    IRQ 7 ECP Printer Port (LPT1) OK
    IRQ 8 System CMOS/real time clock OK
    IRQ 9 SCI IRQ used by ACPI bus OK
    IRQ 10 Texas Instruments PCI-4451 CardBus Controller OK
    IRQ 10 Linksys EtherFast 10/100 PC Card (PCMPC100 V2) OK
    IRQ 10 Texas Instruments PCI-4451 CardBus Controller OK
    IRQ 10 Texas Instruments OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller OK
    IRQ 10 Intel(r) 82801BA/BAM USB Universal Host Controller 1 OK
    IRQ 10 ACPI IRQ Holder for PCI IRQ Steering OK
    IRQ 11 RAGE MOBILITY 128 AGP 4X (English) OK
    IRQ 11 ACPI IRQ Holder for PCI IRQ Steering OK
    IRQ 12 Synaptics PS/2 TouchPad OK
    IRQ 13 Numeric data processor OK
    IRQ 14 Intel(r) 82801BAM Ultra ATA Storage Controller OK
    IRQ 14 Primary IDE controller (dual fifo) OK
    IRQ 15 Intel(r) 82801BAM Ultra ATA Storage Controller OK
    IRQ 15 Secondary IDE controller (dual fifo) OK

    Where do I move the settings to if it is possible. I did try through the device manager but that wouldn't work. Can I do it through the Bios? and if so How?
    Thanks for your help. Are there any other conflicts here which need to be reolved?

    it looks like your resources are in good shape i can't see any IRQ conflicts besides that ME can handle most shared resources. try reinstalling your printer

    The printer I use at home runs through the USB port. I have other things that run through USB as well that will not work properly when I have the ethernet card also at #10 running on the cable. I'm sorry I forgot to mention the printer ran through USB. would that change the response.

    yup ,..... you can change every resource, but when you reboot Windows will change every thing back the way it was. you can try moving the nic card to another slot that will release IRQ 10, and there are other things you can do, and depending on your knowlage of computers you can reset your bios so that the mainboard manages the resources, but let me warn you that is very dangerous if you don't know what your doing. set os pnp to disable then set pci configuration to manual , then reinstall ME over it's self. if you have no ide what this means don't even attempt this
