IRQ conflict

Highlighted
My DAQ PCI-MIO doesn't pass the configuration test and looking in the device
manager of Windows 95
I see a memory conflict which can be solved easily by assigning a new range,
but also a IRQ conflict with
my IDE controller. I dont't manage to solve that last one. I know for sure
that there are IRQ adresses available,
I can't change anything in the device manager and the boot manager also doesn't
give me possibilities to
change anything. Dell says that I should contact NI, but here I also don't
find a solution. Can somebody
help me??

You can usually change IRQs for NI hardware in NIDAQ Configuration Utility
(for older versions of NIDAQ) or in Measurement and Automation Explorer (for
NIDAQ versions 6.5 and later).

You can only change the IRQs using the NIDAQ Configuration Utility or
Measurement & Automation Explorer if you are using Windows NT and an AT board.
If you are using a PCI board, the board's resources are assigned by the BIOS at
boot-up, and they can only be changed from the BIOS. If you're experiencing
resource conflicts with a PCI-board, I would suggest switching PCI slots,
preferably to one closer to the motherboard. Some BIOSes will let you reserve
resources. Try reserving an IRQ for your board. You can also try upgrading
your BIOS. If you're using a DELL computer, I would recommend trying all
revisions of their BIOS to see if that resolves the problem.
