We have IRQs 5, 7, 10, 11 all free on the system. I have tried to force the IRQs in the BIOS setup for the respective PCI slots to 7 for NIC and 11 for the SCSI card. But although they get recognized correctly when the system initially boots, once Win2K loads, the Device Manager puts them back at 16 & 17. Any helpful suggestions or fixes?
Motherboard is GigaByte GA-6VXT with P3-933 proc, 2 x 256 MB ECC SDRAMs, TEKRAM DC-390-U2W scsi card, IBM 9GB LVD 68pin for C-drive and Quantum Atlas 18GB lvd 68 pin for D (data) drive, D-Link 530 tx NIC.
