I have a computer with Windows NT on it, it has a network card in but the drivers are not installed (the card was added after windows was installed)
When I try to install the drivers for the card it asks me what IRQ and I/O Port Address to use and I don't know what to put in (if I did I wouldn't be posting this) Is there a way to find out what they are, or, if there isn't, if I re-install Windows will it find and configure the card? (re-installing Windows won't be too much trouble, and it would fix a couple of other problems)
One way to do it and admittedly its a bit drastic, but not as bad as a re-install is to delete all the devices using the Device manger in the system settings in control panel and then re-booting. Windows will detect all the devices when you boot up the next time and re-configure everything so that they all work properly. This should work unless you have a hard wired device conflict in which case you may have to set jumpers on your add on card to select an IRQ that does not conflict with any other device.
I tried using add adapter in Network properties instead of trying to install windows networking, clicked OK to the first IRQ & I/O settings that came up, and it seems to have worked but I'm not sure as it is not connected to anything yet. Is there any way I can test it without it being connected to a network?
ßéLâ, I downloaded a file from that site but it wasn't any use, anyway it seems to be sorted now
