Possible IRQ Conflict? How do I change IRQ?

Okay, so I've been doing some research on my computer's random freezing, and it might be an IRQ conflict...
I've got my video card, sound card, and modem all on IRQ 11, along with the mobo's USB controllers.

So before returning my memory to Kingston and being without a computer for a week, I'd rather see if this fixes it first.

How do I change the IRQ's? Windows XP says that there's no conflict between the devices, but people have said that that doesn't really make any difference, that it still CAN have conflicts, even if WinXP doesn't report any. The freezing seems to be when I'm playing games or watching a DVD, so I'd certainly like some help here.

Thanks,

Jestermask

can you move the modem down the pci slots, somewhere near the bottom would be good. It should take IRQ 9 or 10 then.

Mind you XP may overule the BIOS :rolleyes:

Having multiple devices on the same IRQ should be no problem unless a PCI card does not follow the exact PCI specification. Sadly some manufacturers don't care. I suggest you test your memory with a memtester application.

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
