How can I check for IRQ conflicts in Windows 98SE/ME?
We recommend that you check to assure that your network adapter is not sharing an IRQ with your Video or Sound card. To check for this:
Right click on the My Computer icon on your desktop.
Select Properties from the menu.
Select the Device Manager tab.
Double click the Computer entry at the top of the device list. This should bring up the IRQ Resource window. If your network card is sharing an IRQ with your Video or Sound card then you may need to move one of those devices to a different IRQ to resolve the conflict.
