I have had a problem with my asus P5K mobo for quite some time.
Usually I got the BSOD saying the IRQL_NOT_QUAL_OR_LESS. With a lot of testing and reinstalls I located that the built in soundcard was the culprit, deactivating it caused the problem to vanish.
So I bought a new sound card, and it has helped but not entirely, as the random BSODs still pop up from time to time (but not as often) I get two different BSODs, one with the irql not equal or less, and one that just states that it has dumped the physical memory, only once did I get one with a driver stated ks.sys
However I was told that freeing up IRQ by disabling devices in the BIOS has helped, so I've already disabled the soundcard and the floppy. So I'm asking you to tell me what more I can disable.
I did deactivate the on board sound device, with going for a different PCI slot, well the other free one is located under my 8800 GTS graphic card so I can't do that. As for my soundcard it's a Creative SB X-Fi XtremeGamer ,PCI, Retail.
So disabling SATA ports that are not used, Also Raid etc, I don't think I need those activated right?
