Does anybody have step by step instructions on how to assign a different IRQ to my firewire card. I have moved it to other PCI slots and it never reassigns. All of my PCI slots are sharing the same IRQ with my video card (PCIe). I know it has to be done in the BIOS but I don't know how and I don't want to mess it up. Thanks in advance.

It didn't help because that was for Windows 95, 98 and ME. I have XP. Thanks anyway.

It's XP. Why does it even matter? If I was running a WIN9X OS, then I would be concerned.

The following came from Annoyances.org.


You can also change from ACPI to Standard PC in you device manager. 1: press Windowskey + Pausebreak to enter system properties. 2: Open 'hardware' tab. 3: Click 'Device manager' 4: Click on the + symbol in front of 'computer' 5: Double-click 'Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) PC' 6: Open 'driver' tab 7: Select 'update driver' 8: Select 'Install from a specified location' 9: Select 'Don't search, I will choose the driver to install' 10: Select 'Standard PC' (maybe you need to de-select the 'Show compatible hardware' box) 11: Click next and follow instructions. After reboot, WinXP will re-detect all devices and re-map all IRQ's. But be aware ... you can not 'roll-back' this driver to ACPI. After you've installed the standerd PC driver you machine also won't shut-down automatically anymore when you quit Windows. You will need to power off manually when it says 'It's now safe to turn of your computer'.
