This is a problem I have learned to live with but would like to fix. I have a dual boot system with win 98 and win 2000 pro. In win2k I am unable to watch dvd's they play very choppy. Also I am unable to watch tv with my ati all in wonder card on win2k. Creative labs has told me the problem is the fact that all of my devices just about are on irq 11. I have a 32 mb ati all in wonder card. A creative labs pcdvd encore 12x 40 dvd player with decoder card. In device manager my video card is listed as pci even though it is agp. Is this normal? These devices share irq 11 video card, modem,nic,scsi,sound,dvd decoder. I feel as though something is left undone. I hate it when everything is not working. I have this incredible system and only two things are not functioning properly. I should let you know also that in the device manager it shows everything working properly.

It's normal for the irq's to be on 11, sorry to say, win2k is suppose to be able to handle them that way. the only way to change them is to disable acpi in bios but you may have to reformat and reinstall if you do it so I don't advise it.

The card should be shown as agp, not pci. You better do some research at ati, generally they tell you to reinstall your agp drivers, etc. If it's functioning as pci it would really slow you down rather than agp

this is how it is listed
(pci) 11 ati all in wonder 128 pro ultra agp. So do you think it is functioning as an agp or a pci? I am leaving for work I will get back to you tommorow.
Thanks
Jerry

You can disable apci from within windows if you so choose. Here is how this can be acomplished [note you may cause more problems than you solve]

Under Windows 2000 you can disable ACPI from within Windows as follows:

Go to Device Manager and select Computer -> Properties of ACPI PC
Click the driver Tab and choose Update Driver
When the wizard gets to the "What do you want the wizard to do?" page select "Display a list of the known drivers..."
Then "Show all hardware of this device class"
Then select "Standard PC"
Reboot the machine
When Windows 2000 restarts it'll redetect most of the hardware in your machine again and reassign IRQ's to them, turning off ACPI.
Note: If you installed Windows with ACPI enabled in the BIOS, and then you disable ACPI using the BIOS, you may need to do a fresh install of Windows!

Here is what powerstrip said about my video card. Maybe this will be of some help. You know those little pictures we can have. Right now mine is the millenium falcon. Well I really need a Chewbacca picture. Maybe you can pass it on to those in charge. Thanks :)

Do you suggest I install the via 4 in 1 service pack. Will this mess everything up? Will I need to reformat? It seems like the video is working fine except in the dvd player and that is only in win2k On this dual boot system I can watch dvd's on win98. I just need to close all programs running in the background.
Thanks

According to powerstrip your agp is disabled.

Up to you but I generally notice users update the 4 in 1 drivers alot without any real problems.

Like for me I have Norton Ghost. I think I will make an image of my drive. That way if it screws up I can just restore it.

BrianF,
Have you ever been hugged by a wookie? Well I installed the via 4 in 1 drivers. Now I have a dvd player that works in both operating systems. Woo Hoo What a great feeling it is to finally put this issue to rest. I have worked on this on and off for six months. You Da Man. Thank you very much. Here is my new and improved diagnostic report.
