Error Messages:



I am using WindowsMe. I have been trying to install a 2.0 USB PCI card. I have tried 2 different types. An Iogear card with an NEC chipset and a VIA card with a VIA chipset. When install the card and load the drivers, everything installs correctly. I have 5 PCI slots and I have tried every 4 slots that are open. The 5th slot has my modem installed. After installing the 2.0 USB card, my computer will freeze or reboot when sound plays from my speakers. I have disabled serial port 1 and 2 in the BIOS. I have noticed that the USB card or driver is sharing IRQ setting 10 with my sound. I tried to use the SB IRQ Select setting in the BIOS to move my sound to another IRQ. Everytime I choose another setting (5,7,9, or 10) nothing changes, it stays at number 9. At this point I have taken the card out. If anyone can help me with some advice I would really appreciate it. I have also changed the 4 in 1 drivers and added the VIA USB patch.

Thank you,

Peter

Do you mean it stays at number 10?

Usually PCI devices can share IRQs but obviously in your case the USB adapter doesn't like it. If you sound card is integrated into the motherboard, is there any options in the BIOS to specifically move the sound card to a different IRQ? Have you tried disabling the sound card in the BIOS, rebooting to allow the system and Windows to allocate IRQs properly and then re-enabling the sound card? After another reboot maybe the sound card will be given a different IRQ (I doubt it but worth a shot!)
