I was fiddling around with Word and went to Help > About Microsoft Word. There was this nifty button called System info and it brought up a whole slew of neat stuff. Under Harware settings I clicked Conflicts/Sharing and it showed that 6 things were all on IRQ #9. To confirm this i clicked IRQs and here's what is on that channel: - Netgear NIC card - SBLive! Card - Conextant Video Capture (cheap cap card I just installed, doesn't work) - TI IEEE1394 Host Controller (prolly why my firewire captures are acting up) - Microsoft ACPI-Compliant System (?) - Intel USB Universal Host Controller 2444 (I have been having minor problems with a USB mouse) Ok now how do assign a different IRQ to each device to hopefully get things working right? Thanks for any help.
