STB 4400 AGP and Windows 2000



New Member
After installing Windows 2000 the video adapter was nicely PnP recognized. However the selected IRQ was 9. This IRQ is shared with USB, soundcard , etc. The system is unstable when e.g. playing media (Audio CD or MP3 file on disk) and e.g. downloading from internet or copying in Explorer. Can I make the system more stable by manual re-arranging IRQ's? Or is there a newer driver for the video adapter (and/or other hardware)?

All Nvidia-based cards TNT and up need an IRQ to themselves, regardless of the driver used.

You could re-arrange some cards, make sure you move it if there is a card in the PCI slot directly below the AGP slot. You could also disable the USB IRQ in the BIOS.
