I have been having lock ups with my agp card (leadtek winfast geforce 2 GTS) and have come the conclusion that this may be a conflict with the agp alot sharing an irq with a pci card. Unforunately windows 98 wont allow me to change the irq through device manager. I have looked through my bios (MSI 6163) and have found only a way to dictate whether an irq will take legacy isa or a pci/isa pnp card. If someone could please help me out I would be much in your debt :)

You can lock the IRQ in savfe mode, and also change the IRQ of a conflicting device. I would set the BIOS to configure cards (as in PNP OS-NO), and set it to reserve an IRQ for VGA. Also some boards put the AGP slot on the same IRQ as the first PCI slot.

Try changing the PCI card's IRQ if the AGP one won't change.
