    As far as i know, back in the days of Win95, it would of caused problems, but these days i wouldn't worry about it, you can't change the IRQ unless you try to force it by formatting (correct me if i'm wrong) but i wouldn't bother. If your PC is performing just leave it, Mine is on 16 also.

    *Just check it's not with the sound card.

    I don't think it matters what irq it's on as long as it's not sharing it with something

    my card is sharing IRQs with my Ethernet modem.

    Any ideas how to change that? without being moving around the cards??

    I would just leave it be. In my opinion as long as it's not sharing the same IRQ as your sound card, it should be fine then

    Thanks for the reply Homeless..

    Thats what I HATE about Windows.. the lacking of choosing IRQs manually...!!

    Ok guys go into windows acessories then system information and look under conflicts.
    LOL are you freaking out yet how many conflicts or shares do you have?
    most systems will have IRQ's shared now days the ACPI controller allows for this to work the basic design of the X86 only allows for 16 real Irqs, heck we ran out back in win 95 era.
    But not to worry you can share Irq's and not have problems REALLY!
