I have a question for ya.How do you change the IRQ assignment of Plug-and-Play devices in XP Home?Everything is running fine,no problems,but my modem and my GeForce 3 use the same IRQ.I want to move one to a different IRQ to see if my 3DMark scores improve and to try to lower my latency in CounterStrike.Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

go to device manager, click view resources by type, then expand IRQ branch, right click on your device click properties then go to resources and you may be able to change it by unticking use automatic settings, although for some reason that option for me is grayed out

didn't used to be in win98:(

it better be grayed out! Windows XP and 2k use a shared IRQ infrastructure therefore removing all(usually) IRQ conflicts.

your 3dmark scores aren't gonna improve, only time the modem might even harm them is in online gaming and even there thats a stretch, as long as there isn't heavy data coming in on the modem as you are running 3dmark (and there shouldn't unless ya run it while online) then your fine

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
