"Which PCI Slots Share an IRQ?
The manual (at least version 1.1B) shows the incorrect info on page 69)
PCI 1 and 5 and AGP
PCI 2 and 6
PCI 3 and C-Media On Board Sound
PCI 4 and USB and Raid (Raid for Raid board only)"
Try another PCI slot, and then set "Reset Configuration Data" to "Enabled" in the "PNP/PCI" section of the bios.
: Here goes nuthin'.
: If you want to get rid of ACPI you must tweak the registry of a running Windows setup. In the Registry under:
: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Detect
: is a DWORD by the name of ACPIOption, that contains the value 1.
: If not, create it.
: Set the value to 2 and restart. Windows should readjust, after the restart, everything on APM and Plug&Play-bios and recognize all hardware again.
: : Alas, no such luck again... I have heard numerous times its an ACPI problem, I guess I will wait till I purchase a new OS to rectify the problem then.
: : : Forget about manually setting IRQs. Windows won't allow it. You need to go to Safe Mode and remove the Root Hubs, Host Controllers and NIC from Device Manager. Now reboot to BIOS setup and *immediately* reset ESCD/Configuration Data/NVRAM.
