In Reply to: Problem with BIOS config. posted by Jesús Rodríguez on January 11, 2002 at 18:07:45:

: I have a PC 100 Mainboard With AMD K6 processor.
: I´m trying to configure the Audio device VIBRA 128 under Windows 98 but there is a conflict with the route that the system assigns "automatically" to this device. It is supossed that I should be able to change in the device administrator the IRQ assignation but I can´t find any way to do that. I have read in the readme that i should reserve in the bios IRQ´s for Legacy isa adapter cards. That doesn´t have any sense to me.

: Could someone help me

: Thanks in advance.


Your PC100 mainboard was made by PC Chips. If you don't know what mainboard model you have you can match your mainboard to PC Chips products (figure out model number) and find LOTS OF GOOD STUFF at:

PCI bus shares IRQs among PCI devices (IRQ routing) so conflicts are rare. ISA devices usually must have the IRQ set in the BIOS and/or on the card. CMOS Setup probably has a page named "PCI/Plug n Play Setup" or something like that where you can reserve IRQs, etc. If you have an ISA device you probably need to reserve or assign an IRQ for it so that IRQ will not be assigned to a PCI device. After that, let the wizard help you find the conflict. You may need to remove cards and replace them one at a time to find the offenders.

Good Luck,
Henry
