I have a gt520 installed on my computer. I am trying to free up irq's. One setting that I am not having much luck with finding out more on, is the assignment for a vga irq. So far what I can figure out is that this is for onboard graphics. If I have a card in a slot do I need this to bee enabled?
if i understand you correctly, to my knowledge, no you do not need an on board graphics enabled if you are running a discrete graphics card. As a matter of fact way back when i had a pc with on board graphics, i had to disable the on board graphics to install my card properly.
Sorry to sound un-appreciative for the reply, but my question is not whether or not to have on board graphics enabled/disabled. I was referring to another setting that is about the assignment of an irq to vga. Does this need to be enabled when there is a pcix card present?
So it seems that my answer is a yes, for anyone that cares. Disabling the (assign irq to vga) in the bios does not effect the PCIX card. It remains on irq #18 in the device manager. Those bios settings were for the on board card.
