View Full Version : Equium A60-152: How to change IRQs?

05.05.2006, 21:19
Hi there!

I have a firewire audio interface (Edirol FA-101) which is having some problems and I believe this is to do with an IRQ conflict on my Equium A60-152 laptop.
When I looked in the device manager, I noticed that my firewire host is sharing IRQ 19 with several other devices (USB, Cardbus etc).
Is there any way that I can switch my firewire host so that it is running on a separate IRQ from these other devices?

I notice that several numbers are not in use (18, 20, 9-11 and 4-7), maybe one of these would be suitable? Whenever I try to change the IRQ of a device in the device manager it is marked as using "automatic settings" and I cannot change this.

Thanks for any help you can give me!

Usually itís not necessary and not advisable to change the IRQs manually.
The OS controls all settings and I assume that all this settings are ok.
You write about some problems but you donít say whatís wrong.

However, this is a 3rd party hardware and in my opinion you will have more luck to solve the issue if you contact the support of the hardware manufacture.

Good luck.

Hi Mongo

Unfortunately you donít write which kind of problems you have. By the way: IRQs sharing is controlled by WinXP and there is no way to change it manually.

Like Juan already wrote, try to contact Edirol support and explain them your problems.
