Reconfigure IRQs on Inspiron 8600 Tags: Windows XP Last response: May 27, 2006 5:45 AM in Windows XP Share johngoodwin May 26, 2006 5:10:10 PM Hi, I was curious if anyone knew how to reconfigure the IRQ assignments for a Dell Inspiron 8600. I run Windows XP sp2, and am very comfortable tweaking any setting on my system. I looked all over, and in the device manager, the Automatic settings checkbox in the resources tab is disabled, so I cannot uncheck it. I noticed my graphics card is on the same IRQ as my USB, network, firewire, etc. I figure my graphics should be on it's own IRQ. I also checked in the BIOS and saw no option to reserve IRQ for the graphics separately. Thanks, John Goodwin PS this is not a thread on the merits or demerits of buying any particular laptop.

It's a bigger pain in the ass to mess with those settings sometimes than it is to just leave it be as is. johngoodwin May 27, 2006 5:45:53 AM It works, but I was just trying to see if it was even possible. So far it doesn't really look like it can be changed anywhere. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources SolvedIntel Core 2 Duo E8600 compatible with Dell Inspiron 560?
