Hello, I recently took out my sound card which was very old and decided to start using the one that came with my motherboard. Now as I get along I noticed that World of Warcraft was crashing a lot giving me strange errors, so I looked up the IRQs and found that my network card and my audio card have the same IRQ. I have attached an image of the panel. Can someone please guide me to changing the IRQ of one of the devices? The standard way didn’t work as the box was ticked out.

Thanks for reading.

I could help you with this. What you have to do is change on of the 'cards' (network or sound) to a empty PCI slot. If you can't do that (no free PCI's left) then you'll have to remove one of the 'cards'.
Once thats done, re-install drivers, reboot, then check again.

Hi, i took out the card, and reinstalled it, but it still uses IRQ number 18. There must be another way to fix this?

When you removed your sound card, did you uninstall the software and drivers that came with it? Also, did you install the drivers for your motherboard?

The sound card on the computer I'm using now has the same IRQ as some other resources, and it works fine. I suspect you have a driver conflict with old/new drivers.
