Can someone let me know if this IRQ listing is OK.I tried to install a soundcard and had a few problems.It was given an IRQ of 11.i dont really understand IRQ so couldnt change it or anything. It worked a couple of times, but i also kept gettin the BSOD.saying something along the lines of "IRQ_NOT_EQUAL_OR_LESS".something like that.With lots of other shite.
It is Win2k.I have on board sound...that is the C-media bit.I disabled this before i installed the card.The modem is PCI so was the sound card,

Any info on this would be appreciated!!!

Thanks

Daniel

It appears that you didn't disable the Cmedia onboard, as it still shows up in the IRQ listing. Can you go to device manager and place a check mark in the box to disable in this hardware profile for that item?

sorry.this is the listing now....with the soundcard uninstalled.But when i do install it, it just replaces the c-media line...it has an IRQ of 11.I'm wondering if this is causing the problems.Because of the modem and soundcard both being CI and both avin an IRQ of 11.


Thanks for the reply

Try putting the sound card in a different slot so it uses another IRQ.

I had IRQ conflicts too when I first put my sound card in. The modem just didn't like sharing. :D

I'd see if you could find updated drivers for the soundcard and modem. The "IRQ_NOT_EQUAL_OR_LESS" error is almost always a driver issue, but sometimes very hard to pin down what driver is causing the problem.

You might also uninstall and remove the modem as a test to see if the sound card will run without the modem. Then add the modem back in, sometimes the order of install will affect the operation.

Just an FYI....
I think you are going to find the IRQ problem is a bit more involved if your Win2K is setup using the ACPI HAL instead of the standard HAL. The newer motherboards will have this set as a default in the bios.
Here are some links to give you an idea of what you are dealing with.....
