IRQ ports can be dynamically assigned with Windows.

follow these steps:

click the start button,

select settings,

select control panel,

double click the system icon,

click the device manager tab.

Find the device you wish to change the settings for, then select it:

Click the properties tab,

Click the resources tab,

There should be a check mark next to a comment that says

"use automatic settings".

Take that check mark away.

Double click the IRQ setting, and then

select a new one which does not indicated in

the box below that it will be causing hardware conflicts

with another device.

Be warned that changing IRQ settings can cause major problems

with hardware conflicts, and should only be done if you are

trying to resolve a current conflict.

Good luck
