geforce and aureal au3380 sound card sha

By Ghandi the Inept ·
sound card and video card are both assigned to the same IRQ...i cannot reassign resources thru device manager and there is no option other than basic configuration 0000 to try...both methods of irq reassignment i have found. BIOS (amibios on asus k7m athlon mobo) has no settings that appear to change these assignments either..

Does anyone know how i can change these resources - if i have to that is - only problems expirienced are in 3d games...sound and video work fine otherwise...

Any help would be well appreciated as this is a personal crisis - no TFC!!

athlon600
asus k7m
asus agp v6600 geforce sdr
aureal au8830 3d soundcard
192mb ram
etc...

Somtimes there are methods of setting the IRQ actually on the hardware itself, check there are no jumper/switch seetting which can be altered to correct this.

You shoul have the option of changing the setting by choosing Control Panel-Settings,then double click on the System Icon,select the plus besides the device you want to change,in the sub-tre,highlight the device and then click on the properties button,click on the resources tab and uncheck the automatic settings box now you have the option of setting the IRQ manually.
Hope this helps.

If the jumper switches and Resource tab in the control panel don't help you, I would uninstall the sound card, update the video drivers with the latest available from the web, reinstall the sound card and update its drivers also. This may resolve the conflicting IRQ's in the process and remove any other possible driver problems in the process. Good luck.

Try to free up another IRQ by eliminating the secondary chanel IDE controller or the USB controller if you're not using them. Then go to the device manager and remove both of the devices and reboot. Allow the computer to redetect them and re-installthe drivers. You might be lucky enough that one will use the other freed IRQ.

Hope that works. If not, there is a option in the BIOS that tells the computer if a Plug 'n Play operating system is installed. Turn it off if it's on. Then try answer #2.

If that doesn't work, then good luck.

Hi,

If you have the Soundcard in PCI1 (next to the AGP slot), move it and leave it free.

A lot of GFX cards require their own IRQ to
work properly, especially those with capture
features.

In order to force your PCI card to use a differentIRQ, you should check the MB handbook/online FAQ etc. for details on
changing your BIOS settings.

CU,
Glenn
