Mother Board Problem

By Nadim ·
I have a PAG2130 mainboard, with onboard AGP chipset and soundcard. Whenever the soundcard drivers are installed, the machine gives BSOD, on diagnosing the problem I found the IRQ of both the devices is the same. Could that be the problem, if yes please let me know how to change it, because it does not allow me to change it from the System Properties....

You are correct that it cannot be changed from the System Properties - it must be changed from the motherboard CMOS setup. As the machine is booting, there should be a point at which it says (press <del> to enter CMOS) or something like that and when you do so, you will enter the CMOS Setup Screen. Look for an option that says Integrated Peripherals, choose it and you should be able to tweak the IRQ as necessary.

hope this helps...

It does sound like you have an IRQ conflicts, and if your bios allows you to specify or reserve IRQ's then thats what you should do. But if it doesn't, Then th only real way to change the IRQ is to swap slots. FACT: which slot a device is in, is howthe bios determines what IRQ a device will get. And always set your bios for non PNP OS. or else windows determines what IRQ a device will get.

Does sound like IRQ conflict, there are two things you can do.........
1) Move the soundcard to any PCI slot apart from slot 1 as this tends to share IRQ with the AGP slot.
2) In the Pnp in the BIOS see if there is an entry to Assign IRQ to VGA and enable it.

Both these steps should assign the two cards different IRQ's.
