  1. I'm having some problems with my GF4 Ti4200 128MB card. Visiontek recommends IRQ #11, but by default it's on #16. How do you change the IRQ?

    System:

    1.7Ghz P4
    GF4 Ti4200
    512MB SDRAM
    Intel D845HV

    Thanks a lot

    You can either change it from within Windows' (assuming you're using it) Device Manager, or your BIOS. Consult your documentation for instructions to do it from your BIOS.

    Hmm, I'll try it. But I don't think I have any documentation.

    In that case, check it out in the manufacturer's website, which is here -> Intel D845HV

    When it is first starting up > hold down F8. That should get you into a dos screen. Use your arrow keys to go over to the 4th (I think) tab. Open it & look for PCI settings or such. In there will be a window with your IRQ assignments. You can change them with the arrow keys.

    It has been awhile & I can't remember exactly which tab, etc. but I know that is how I change mine.

    HTH,

    OK, I get PCI IRQ (? I think that that's what it was) #1, 2, 3 , and the priority selections are IRQ #9, 10, and 11. What do I select? It's currently on Auto.

    Didn't you want it on #11?

    Really, you should use Windows' Device Manager. Just find your video card, right click to properties, and then the resources tab. You can change it there, and it's much easier :p

    Well I wish I could do it, but the option is grayed out.
