I am running win xp and I have 8 devices sharing IRQ 10. I have tried changing them manually in the bios also moved the cards but it is still crashing my pc and then when it restarts it resets the devices all back to IRQ 10. PLEASE HELP!

Unfortunately, this is by design in your system if you have ACPI enabled in the bios. Here is some info ...........

The only way to be able to manually set IRQ's would be to reinstall XP using the standard HAL configuration.
XP is very good with IRQ sharing, if everything is PCI compliant. If you feel your problem is IRQ related, it is more likely a driver issue or a piece of hardware that is not fully compliant. Be sure to have the latest update in drivers and the latest windows updates installed.

What type of system is it, and what is the system board? I have this problem before, but with both an FIC and Asus board. I was able to correct it after hitting the pause button right after the post to see where the hardware was identifing where the parts are.
