Cool Irq Device Failure

I am running Win98SE on this system and I know that Win98SE always had memory allocation problems as it STILL does.

I noticed recently that I could NOT PLAY certain games because of video problems.

When running MS INFO under the category COMPONENTS, Problem Devices.

ALL ACPI IRQ Holder for PCI IRQ Steering says, "This Device Has A Problem." Device Failure...

BELOW IS MY IRQ SETTINGS & CONFLICT/SHARING

IRQ SETTINGS

0 System timer
1 Standard 101/102-key or Microsoft Natural Keyboard
2 Programmable interrupt controller
3 Communications Port (COM2)
4 Communications Port (COM1)
5 ACPI IRQ Holder for PCI IRQ Steering
5 ACPI IRQ Holder for PCI IRQ Steering
5 ACPI IRQ Holder for PCI IRQ Steering
5 ACPI IRQ Holder for PCI IRQ Steering
5 ACPI IRQ Holder for PCI IRQ Steering
5 NVIDIA nForce MCP Networking Controller
5 Standard OpenHCI USB Host Controller
5 NVIDIA nForce PCI System Management
5 Creative PCI Modem Enumerator
6 Standard Floppy Disk Controller
7 Printer Port (LPT1)
8 System CMOS/real time clock
9 SCI IRQ used by ACPI bus
10 MPU-401 Compatible
11 ACPI IRQ Holder for PCI IRQ Steering
11 ACPI IRQ Holder for PCI IRQ Steering
11 ACPI IRQ Holder for PCI IRQ Steering
11 ACPI IRQ Holder for PCI IRQ Steering
11 Silicon Image Sil 3112 SATARaid Controller
11 VisionTek XTASY 9600
11 Realtek AC'97 Audio
11 NVIDIA USB 2.0 Enhanced Host Controller
11 Standard OpenHCI USB Host Controller
12 PS/2 Compatible Mouse Port
13 Numeric data processor
14 Primary IDE controller (single fifo)
14 Standard Dual PCI IDE Controller
15 Secondary IDE controller (single fifo)
15 Standard Dual PCI IDE Controller

CONFLICTS/SHARING IRQ's

IRQ 5 ACPI IRQ Holder for PCI IRQ Steering
IRQ 5 ACPI IRQ Holder for PCI IRQ Steering
IRQ 5 ACPI IRQ Holder for PCI IRQ Steering
IRQ 5 ACPI IRQ Holder for PCI IRQ Steering
IRQ 5 ACPI IRQ Holder for PCI IRQ Steering
IRQ 5 NVIDIA nForce MCP Networking Controller
IRQ 5 Standard OpenHCI USB Host Controller
IRQ 5 NVIDIA nForce PCI System Management
IRQ 5 Creative PCI Modem Enumerator
IRQ 11 ACPI IRQ Holder for PCI IRQ Steering
IRQ 11 ACPI IRQ Holder for PCI IRQ Steering
IRQ 11 ACPI IRQ Holder for PCI IRQ Steering
IRQ 11 ACPI IRQ Holder for PCI IRQ Steering
IRQ 11 Silicon Image Sil 3112 SATARaid Controller
IRQ 11 VisionTek XTASY 9600
IRQ 11 Realtek AC'97 Audio
IRQ 11 NVIDIA USB 2.0 Enhanced Host Controller
IRQ 11 Standard OpenHCI USB Host Controller
IRQ 14 Primary IDE controller (single fifo)
IRQ 14 Standard Dual PCI IDE Controller
IRQ 15 Secondary IDE controller (single fifo)
IRQ 15 Standard Dual PCI IDE Controller

Both IRQ 14 & 15 are OK.

IRQ 5 & 11 are the problem

CPU = AMD Athlon 2500+(1.84GHz) with 512 Cache
RAM = 512 MB SDRAM
MAINBOARD = nVidia-nForce
Front Side Bus = 334MHz
PLENTY OF HARD DRIVE SPACE.
OS = Windows 98SE

IS there a simple way to CHANGE IRQ SETTINGS?

Question is WHERE TO GO with them without causing other conflicts?

10 MPU-401 Compatible puzzles me... is this MIDI?
I do have ON-BOARD SOUND through REALTEK which does cover MIDI.

IF IRQ 10 isn't essential then that could be an 'OPEN' slot.

Thanks For ANY HELP! Zippy41

Have you got a SoundBlaster card installed?

Cool No Soundblaster Card Installed

There is no soundblaster card(PCI) installed because I have
ON-BOARD(MOTHERBOARD) SOUND, Realtek A97 Audio that takes care of my sound. My PREVIOUS motherboard had NO ON-BOARD Sound Device so I had a Soundblaster 16/32 (PCI).

Anymore questions?

Thanks! Zippy41

I got the part about having the RealTek AC97 Audio on board. The reason I asked the question is because IRQ 5 is going to a Creative PCI modem. This made me wonder if you possible had a SoundBlaster installed as well.

When you switched motherboards, did you reinstall the OS, or is this the same install with the new mobo drivers loaded?

Cool

When I upgraded the Motherboard, I did not re-install Windows 98SE, instead I un-installed Soundblaster because there would have been serious conflicts with the Motherboard Realtek drivers apparently it looks like ALL the Soundblaster drivers were NOT eliminated then because you found the CREATIVE PCI Modem; however, I intentially kept this because I have a CREATIVE MODEM installed I'm sorry but I use dialup and my brother wants me to switch over to Cable Modem on his router which I have not done yet. I bought a wireless PCI card for Cable.
Yes that CREATIVE PCI MODEM is because of that darn PCI MODEM for my dialup that I'm currently using sorry for that.

Just a wild guess, but this could be the problem:

IRQ 11 VisionTek XTASY 9600
IRQ 11 Realtek AC'97 Audio

Seems that the audio is trying to share the same IRQ as the Video card (in this case, it appears you have an ATi 9600). Although IRQ sharing is pretty standard, because both devices are requesting usage of it, it's causing conflicts, and the video card is reporting an error.

IRQ settings can usually be changed in BIOS. You need to ensure the independent devices are getting their own IRQ (CPU, RAM, Audio, Modem, Video, HDD/IDE devices, USB hubs/ports/devices, and any other devices that are gonna be used at the same time as other devices (e.g. audio and video are both used in games at the same time)).

I've never had to deal with manually keying in IRQ's, so perhaps someone else may be able to advise how to go about it.

THis was one of the main reasons I moved to XP when I did. It handles IRQ sharing much better. 98 just does not have it in it. Not reinstalling the OS when changing the board can cause a host of issues. Uninstalling the devices in questions may help. Uninstall and reinstall.

Manually change the AC97 to IRQ 7
