IRQ how do i change the setting?

By ctripps ·
After a recent crash i had to reformat the HD. On reinstalling everything my Modem and Com Port1 have decided to share the same IRQ 4. this doesnt work. My question is how do i assign the modem to the correct IRQ? I've removed it and reinstalled it,reinstalled windows, nothing seems to work that way.
Any help would be gratefully welcomed.

BIOS Setting

by Addam Moody In reply to IRQ how do i change the s ...

If there are no jumpers on the internal modem card to change IRQ, some BIOS revisions, especially AWARD BIOS, have a setting somewhere called "Modem Use IRQ".

I believe this is exactly what you're looking for. If the modem is a PnP (plug and pray) device, you can just manually change the IRQ in device manager (assuming its windows 9x), and it should work.

Hope this solves your problem.
