I need some help with IRQ stuff. My roommate has a Sony Vaio laptop and he isn't able to get connected to the internet through his NIC. I believe it's a Intel PRO/VE 10/100 NIC. Anyways, it's not receiving any packets or info or anything. It's not saying there are any conflicts, but i think it has something to do with an IRQ conflict. Does this sound right? If not, what are some possibilities to this problem?
I forgot how to check what IRQs are used by what hardware. It's WinXP Home as well.
oh, and if it could be answered tonight, that would be appreciated; I'd like to try and save my roommate some money, since the school tech guy wants to do some USB connection and he'd have to pay more.
