I have assembled a computer from spare parts to give away as part of a service club donation. Up untill recently the computer was progressing fine.

However I have a serial mouse that is messing up the screen with garbage after about 10 min after bootup

O assume this means an IRQ problem conflict with the mouse and the display adaptor.

What can I do to solve such?
This would be my first time changing IRQ settings

Specs are as follows:
MFG=homebuilt from spare parts
OS =win98se
133 mz processor
so far only 32 mb ram

Hiya

First off, lets have a look at your IRQ list.

Go to Start | Run and type MSINFO32
On the left choose Hardware Rescources, then IRQs. Copy/paste the list here.

Regards

Glad to hear its working okay. If you want to mark this one Solved, just click Thread Tools at the top, and select it from the list ;)

As to the list, you have two IRQ slots free, which is good as you can add more hardware without a conflict happening, hopefully.

One of the famous conflict can be if the modem is sharing with the graphics/sound card. From what I can see, it all looks healthy to me :)
