turning off plug and play in bios

  pookie 13:21 16 Sep 04


windows xp, 3 Ghz barton, 1 Gb ddr ram, x800pro graphics, on board sound, asus a7n8x-x mobo.

in another forum someone mentioned that event though benchmarks for your system may be right, that your pc can struggle in may modern games. when i play ut2004 it does stutter abit at 1024x768 in some cases which it shouldn't - nothing serious but the odd second stutter.

this forum said that if you have on board sound that the mobo might be sharing your graphics card icq? and on board sound icq? on the same channel. to avoid this diasble plug and play in bios and they will be assigned seperate icq? channels nd thus aviod the stuttering.

does this seem resonsable? should i do it?

cheers as always

Don't think there's any harm in trying. You could disable onboard sound instead to see if that is the cause of the stutter.

thanks dan - disabled on board sound and not much fps difference - think i'm hoping for something that isn't there
