WinXP pro IRQ allocation.

  [DELETED] 22:34 24 Nov 2003

Hi, I`m making this post on behalf of a friend who like myself is a musician and like myself also, is using XP pro and an Audiophile 2496 soundcard. M audio who make the soundcard advise that the card should be allocated its own, separate, IRQ number, luckily my card seems to have found IRQ 19 which is not shared by any other hardware on my machine but my friend has not been so fortunate. No matter what he does with the card i.e. change slots etc, it always ends up sharing an IRQ with other equipment which causes problems with sound quality.
Does anyone know if there is any way within XP pro of assigning IRQ`s to particular pieces of equipment, are these IRQ`s adjustable in any way or is it simply luck of the draw how these numbers are allocated. Any info gratefully received. Thanks.
