  1. I am getting random crashes, and most of the time it is a windows stop error, saying IRQ error. Ive also seen it say something about the video driver too.
    I looked at the device manager, and the only potential error I see witht he IRQ's is the Video card & my wireless card are both on PCI 16. Is there a way to change this?? or any other troubleshooting ideas?

    AMD64 3000+
    ASUS K8VSE Deluxe
    PNY GeForce 5600 Ultra
    2*512mb Corsair XMS PC3200 (2-2-2-5 Latency)
    ASUS WiFi-B wireless card
    Win XP PRo Sp2
    Thermaltake 480w PS

    If you can, try the wireless card in another slot.

    remove all driver components under control panel. Reboot, let windows self-configure the devices it finds. Let it self-install. (have driver CD's handy)
