Hi,
I have an IBM 760ed notebook with Win 98 installed. Can not install a higher version.

I have installed a cardbus to have it to communicate with a LAN but run into problem after installation.
I am told that the BIOS is unable to automatically give an IRQ and are asked to manually set the IRQ in the BIOS.

I have tried the installed Easy Setup program but it doesn´t handle any settings of the IRQ´s.

Is there any possibility to enter the BIOS from MS-dos? If so how?

Are there anyone that can give me any idea´s about how to go on?

/Claes :confused:

i dont know about ms-dos. But if you reboot your computer durring boot up it will brefly say press del to enter setup. that is how i usually enter BIOS.

what you might try is move the card to another slot as the IRQ alot to that slot maybe beening used by another device, also you may have to hit F2 to go into bios if delete does not work
