hi, i have posted this before, but will try till i get the answer i'm looking for :)
i have......... g/c / ob sound/ firewire/ modem, and 2 usb host controllers using irq 11. now, i know that if possible, all items should have their own irq, but some can share, however i find it hard to believe that all of these components can safely or competently share the same irq. any thoughts on this please. can i manually change, or re-arrange them?

I presume your running xp? for some wierd reason xp manages irq's in a strange manner, but there is NO problem with this so just ignore it if your pc is working ok.
