Ethernet Card IRQ - BIOS

By jwolpert ·
Per Device Man. (98-SE), my Fast Ethernet card (Linksys, PCI-PnP) is configured but indicates "...disabled because BIOS for device did not give it an IRQ (Code 29)". No conflicts are indicated. In Computer , Resources I see all of the assigned IRQ'sbut none for this card (there are unused ones avail.). The PCI buss Settings are for "use Hardware". I have an older Phoenix bios (1.03, M5P-P02B; none-PnP) that Phoenix doesn't know much about (CompuAdd/Micronics proprietary) and an ATA ProFlash card (larger drives and Y2K). I'm told I need to "flash" the bios but don't know if/how/what to do to proceed.

To flash you bios just visit the bios manufacturer website and search updated bios ver of your bios or it will be much more easier if you know what mainboard you r using and visit their website and do the same thing .

Hi

Although flashing, or updating, your BIOS may solve this issue, there is another alternative. Go into Device Manager and remove any ports (LPT or COMM), which are not used. Removing any unused devices will free the IRQ's associated with them, making them available for other devices.

Good luck
