here is the problem as it stands right now: i built another computer for my self and installed xp pro onto it as an upgrade from 98 se. with both os's my computer would routinely crash for some unknown reason to me. Much latter i found out that my video card, sound card, and network adapter were sharing the same irq address. No problem there, i will just go into device manager and change my video card to a different number as the sound card and network card are not having problems sharing on my other computer. the only problem was that the the use automatic settings box was grayed out and so i could not change the address:-(. The bottom line is i would like to be able to put my video card and sound card on there own IRQ's how do i do it?
